Software and Solutions for the Construction Materials and Aggregate Industries

    Greycoat Software presented at the OSSGA Operations, Health, and Safety seminar.

    Using technology to augment workplace safety programs was the focus of Greycoat Software's presentation at #OPHS2019.

    On January 24th in Mississauga, Greycoat Software presented at OSSGA's "Operations, Health, and Safety seminar".  The presentation, by Greycoat's Henry Slofstra and Ryan Anderson's was titled "Augmenting your safety program with technology", and according to Slofstra "we highlighted advantages of using technology, such as mobile phones and tablets to reinforce a strong safety culture in any workplace, no matter what the task".

    As the presentation wrapped up, and after Slofstra thanked the hosts for opening the space for Greycoat's presentation, he summarized several of the main benefits of using such technology in a safety program:

    • Increased safety awareness,
    • improved response to unsafe conditions,
    • team cohesion around safety issues & culture,
    • less paper,
    • useful data presented in a simple format,
    • pragmatic analytics on near misses, behaviours, & conditions’.

    The OPHS is an annual event hosted by the Ontario Stone, Sand, and Gravel Association and brings together aggregate companies to focus on health and safety of their operations including new legislation, useful approaches, and emergent technologies.
