A free new app, WorkPlaceAware is designed to help employees report “near misses” of injuries more easily.
Using the mobile phone app, employees can photograph near misses, type a description of the incident and quick send it to their company's or supervisor's MessageQube. Safety managers are instantly alerted to the near miss and reports of potential safety hazards. They print in real time using a mini cellular desktop printer that receives the test and photo messages from any cellular phone.
A green light flashes each time a new report prints out. Also, the system can be configured to also notify managers via email when reports are filed.
”By using Workplace Aware, companies can allow employees to report incidents from the field, without having to fill out pages of paperwork or holding up the work day. and if employees choose, reports can be submitted anonymously,” said WorkplaceAware CEO Rob Sweeney.
Sweeney created the MessageQube in 2012, and started the company in January of 2014.
