Occupational health & safety, industrial safety as well as labor force protection are essential topics in the context of manufacturing facilities, operating sites and industrial production plants. Occupational Safety and Health Administration and employers mutual insurance associations demand that safety be a priority. Therefore an open and transparent communication of work injury statistics and lost time accidents / lost time incidents (LTA/LTI) for employees and visitors should be the standard for all modern companies!
Digital information screens (digital signage) are a very flexible and also affordable way to present accident statistics and to promote health and safety measures like general health and safety messages or other prevention-related educational content. Since flat screens can be easily mounted almost anywhere and are known to have a high perception by employees, they are the ideal choice!
The digital signage software FrontFace by mirabyte has everything you need to create great-looking information displays! You can easily arrange different types of content such as PDF documents, pictures, videos and even Web sites to create stunning playlists. An optional plugin specifically for conveniently displaying accident statistics and other health and safety related data is also available. Since you only need a flat screen and a PC, this setup is not only much cheaper than common, static LED-based information boards — it also gives you much more flexibility because everything on the screen can easily be customized at any time according to your individual needs!
Accident Statistics Plugin
The separately available Accident Statistics Plugin is also available as a free trial version. It allows you to show statistical data about the last accident (e.g. days since last accident, accident rate, number of lost time accidents (LTA), year-to-year comparison, etc.). You only have to update the data when an accident happens because the statistics are calculated automatically based on the current date. It is also possible to report the number of accidents per department for a more competitive overview. The FrontFace software allows you to customize the look and feel of the plugin such as colors, logo and font in order to perfectly match your corporate identity!
Convenient Content Management
Controlling display content is super-easy with FrontFace. The software comes with a special application called FrontFace Assistant which you can install on any Windows PC. It allows composing and controlling content and playlists for your display(s). You can use schedules for running time-controlled playlists or you can display ad hoc content! Working with the intuitive FrontFace Assistant is so easy that even untrained users can work with it hassle-free. Screens can be updated instantly while the software is running either using a local network connection (online) or a USB flash drive (offline update).
Occupational Health & Safety System
In addition to legal obligations regarding the documentation and prevention of work injuries, a safety inspector also has the task of informing employees about health and safety-related topics and of implementing health and safety measures for better labor force protection and more safety at work. An information display that communicates both statistical data about accidents at the production plant as well as general safety messages for prevention is the perfect choice! Even for industrial sites and manufacturing facilities where dust or other environmental aspects come into play this is still possible due to specialized protection housings that are available for LCD displays. A display with health and safety information is ideal to constantly inform employees and workers and to reduce work injuries by implementing a safety culture: Because safety is a priority!
