e-obs online Safety Card tool

e-obs is an electronic observation card system designed for the workforce. It enables users to record safety concerns and highlight examples of good safety practice.

e-obs allows both installation operators and contracting companies to see their respective card data.

It also allows the person who submitted the card to directly receive feedback about the points they raised.

e-obs compliments the existing SWE suite of standardised and simplified tools such as toolbox talks, dynamic risk assessments and safety observation cards.

The aim is to use technology to improve safety learnings and make the industry safer.

Furthermore, it allows Step Change in Safety to conduct industry wide trending and analysis, enabling tailored responses to industry challenges.

To allow potential users to trial the system, we have created a safe and secure replica of the online tool which lets members navigate around the system, input test cards etc. without affecting real data collection.



If you, or your company, would like to experience a ‘trial run’ of the e-obs tool, please get in touch with us to register.
