Asbestos management software case study

Background  

Woods was originally formed in 1994 to provide high quality asbestos remediation services across the South East of England. It now operates nationally across five offices located in Harlow (HQ), Milton Keynes, Wellington, Pontyclun (South Wales) and Rhyl (North Wales) delivering asbestos solutions to a broad range of market sectors procured through competitive tender, sole source arrangements or long-term frameworks.

Challenge

To evolve with the rapid expansion of the business, Woods needed a system which would allow their managers – based at five different UK locations – to easily track and monitor all aspects of their client projects, from health and safety record keeping to competence assessments. Senior management based at the head office also needed to spot company-wide trends and be able to support and assist the regional teams in a proactive manner.

They needed a single system reading from one dataset, but accessible across the country – allowing both a regional and national approach when needed. And they needed to track overall success rates in order to highlight any areas which could be improved and ensure overall effectiveness of the teams.

Results

The Assure360 system was rolled out to Woods management staff across the board, and has proved to be indispensable in allowing managers an easy and efficient platform on which to record, share and track the the H&S success of their projects. The ability to measure all aspects of H&S, exposure monitoring, competence monitoring and training needs analysis has saved significant admin time. It also reduces the chance for human error with its reporting functionality. This helps managers to easily provide accurate reports to senior managers, which in turn give a great overview of where the company is succeeding and where it can invest time and energy in improving.

What the client said

“In my role as Compliance Manager I use Assure360 all the time. I find it invaluable, simplifying every task from health and safety recording, competence monitoring, close-out of audits, exposure monitoring and reporting to senior management. The Assure360 Support Team are very responsive and actively encourage feedback. I feel as though the system is continually improving and evolving to match exactly what I need.”
