Safety Concepts have been awarded the contract to supply a complete safety management software solution to Isaac Regional Council. Working closely with local government organisations Safety Concepts has developed an application specific solution based on the IMS Software used for many years by state government in Queensland.
The solution is called LOGOSS (Local Government Safety System) and uses a modular architecture to create functionality that meets the unique needs of a typical council or city authority
Councils must comply with WHS laws like anyone else but their needs are more complex due to the challenges of operating many disparate workplaces. Local Authority workplaces vary significantly and can range from rubbish recycling plants to roadwork sites, from libraries and municipal pools. All require a different approach but all must come together under one automated compliance workflow.
Managing Director of Safety Concepts Wayne Patterson said “We are delighted to be chosen by Isaac Regional Council as a partner in this project. They have unique compliance and risk management needs in this remote but dynamic community. One of the reasons Isaac Regional Council chose our software was for its ease of use and because it works out of the box with minimum configuration”.
“Most of the drop boxes, files and code tables are already populated”, said Mr Patterson, “making integration and installation of the software much faster and training much easier”.
“One key requirement of the client was that we are able to integrate with current solutions like payroll and HR software. In addition they wanted to see a future roadmap for adoption of a fully hosted interface using smart devices“.
“We felt comfortable meeting those requirements. Our system already integrates at a number of client sites with their payroll and work cover providers. We can work with any modern database and the only limit is how far the client can go with the third party provider”.
“The exciting thing was that our people had already developed a mobile application that is ready to be rolled out. This Safety App integrates with LOGOSS and works on any device without connection to a network.. That is going to be very attractive to any organisation with highly distributed workforce in remote locations.”
Isaac Region has a population of 250,000 people spread over 59,000 km in farm and grazing land stretching from the beaches of St Lawrence south of Mackay to mineral rich Bowen Basin with such iconic towns as Clermont, Dysart and Moranbah.
