Accident reports go electronic

Posturite's new online accident management system is now being used by Hampshire Police

All officers in Hampshire are now using a new electronic system to record and report accidents and near misses, which previously required manual form-filling.

The new fully automated accident management system (AMS), developed jointly by Posturite and Hampshire Police, will save officers' time and paper filing, flag up which accidents need to be reported to the Health & Safety Executive and automatically route them through.

It will also give Hampshire Police's Health & Safety advisor, David Leverett, online access to all the statistics and data he needs, keep safety reps informed and provide reports for line managers.

Leverett has spent the best part of two years developing the new system with Posturite's software and consultancy division, WorkRite, and tailoring it to meet his specific requirements.

He said, "Posturite's system has been created to be as flexible as possible so that all sorts of other organisations - not necessarily just police forces and emergency services - can tweak it to meet their individual needs. That's a big plus factor over the other off-the-shelf systems available in the marketplace."

Ryan Church, sales manager for Posturite's WorkRite division, added, "This powerful new program is a further development of WorkRite's unique online management system that supports all our e-learning packages. Its flexibility is astounding. There is absolutely no reason why it can't now be adapted to meet the needs of virtually any other line of business or organisation.

"All employers are legally required to have accident recording and reporting systems in place, but the information they need to capture or disseminate may vary. Our AMS allows them to have a package tailored precisely to their needs."

Posturite, based at Berwick, East Sussex, is the UK's leading provider of ergonomic and First Aid solutions for the workplace. Its WorkRite division supplies tailored packages of health and safety training software and consultancy.
