Many companies are looking for ways to reduce maintenance expenses at the cost of shrinking budget and limited resources. Safe and health is one criterion where organizations can control labor costs. If you work out against poor safety practices and accidents that lead to employee injury and illness it can impact employee motivation and productivity.

Not only does computerized maintenance management software (CMMS) minimize the risk of accidents but also it helps organizations avoid noncompliance penalties. Below are the major maintenance control software features that help improve safety and achieve cost savings.

Based on Operating Procedures:

In any maintenance department, it is crucial to develop standard operating procedures and associating them with specific assets or tasks. A safety program ensures that every work order issued by a CMMS describes the necessary safety precautions that workers must take. Also, it helps you increase productivity because they minimize uncertainty and create better workflow.

One such supplement to standard operating procedures is safety checklists that provide maintenance technicians with a list of safety tasks in chronological order. So that technicians can enter data as well as check off completed tasks time to time.

Watch out for Previous Safety Records

CMMS software helps to record each employee’s safety records that include lost-time accidents and illnesses can motivate employees to keep lost-time accidents to a minimum. If you find an increase in certain types of accidents or frequent accidents caused by a specific individual, based on that history, targeted improvements like training or equipment redesign can also be implemented.

Asset Maintenance:

Assets are given importance ratings based on their role, the amount of preventative maintenance they require, and also the degree of danger to which they expose workers. This Asset Management Software has priority codes that allow maintenance technicians to prioritize work based on equipment criticality.
