Safety is the leading priority for the manufacturing leadership of an organization because of the people. Keeping your people safe and setting them up for success so they can return to their families each night is always the goal. Additionally, manufacturing leaders should ensure their employees feel as though the organization they choose to come into work for everyday is taking all the measures and steps possible to ensure their safety. That’s why Near Miss reports are in place — to identify areas where safety can be improved and understand trends. But consider how your near miss reports could be taken to the next level. Here’s why your business should transform your near miss process with a Connected Worker Platform like Anvl:

The ROI of Connected Worker Platforms

In today’s day and age, a key strategy manufacturing leadership can take to improve worker safety is to invest in connected worker solutions. The future of work is now and includes incorporating technology into the daily life of manufacturing workers on the frontlines. Investing in safety through connected worker solution technology is a great way to make sure employee safety comes first and see major fiscal boosts in ROI on the safety programs a manufacturing leadership team is investing in. 

Medically-consulted injury has an average cost of $39,000, while a death has an average cost of $1.15 million and according to data from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, companies in America pay $62 billion per year for workplace injuries — that’s more than $1 million per week. By striving to invest in cutting-edge tech that improves worker safety, such as a Near Miss workflow from Anvl, top hazard trends can be automated in data collection like never before.

Be More Proactive with Near Miss Data

Do you spend more data manually collecting data, or actually putting data into action? Many Near Miss forms are still on paper with an open text field to collect basic information. This makes compiling the information very cumbersome and means the focus is more on tallying totals than it is learning from what is being reported. By automating data collection with a Connected Worker Solution, you can uncover critical insights and add structure and dimension to the data you capture so you can really learn from it. This way, you’ll be able to focus on learning and improving. 

Drive Agile Continuous Improvements

Near Miss data presents training opportunities or may uncover a misunderstanding of company safety policies through reporting and trends. Automated data collection can provide valuable insight into what top trends and hazards are, and what the business can do to educate workers on a safer workplace.
