Protect your business from rising Health and Safety Fines

The BBC reported recently that the amount UK firms paid out in H&S fines has risen sharply following the introduction of tougher rules in 2016.

Law firm BLM said there were 292 fines issued during the last year, with more than £61M paid out in total, a 148% rise since 2015.

Fines are now imposed proportionate to the size of a business, rather than a standard fine, meaning that companies with a turnover of £50M face fines of £10M for health and safety offences and £20M for corporate manslaughter, also more than 18 fines topped £1m last year, compared with just two in 2015.

While we know that H&S legislation is vital, how can businesses ensure the safety of employees and visitors while getting on with the job of running their business?

Asset Handling had this in mind when development began on the existing Asset Insight Manager (AIM) software, already in place at a number of organisations who were using the asset management modules to monitor the performance and lifecycle of their valuable assets, to pre-empt any issues and budget for eventual replacement.

The new developments with AIM now allow companies to automate their compliance testing to ensure the H&S regulations are met, testing on emergency lighting, elevators and tap temperature testing for legionella can now all be automated via the AIM sensors with any issues reported immediately to the responsible person so that action can be taken.

This method of testing not only saves business money but also many man hours which would have been spent on carrying out the tests, especially when organisation operate remote sites. Another advantage is that there is no time awaiting reports on any failures, these are sent directly from the sensors to the pc or smart phone of the responsible person.

AIM to save your time and money, whilst reducing your carbon foot print

People always say the world is getting smaller, and with continuously improving technologies and means of communication it certainly seems like that is the case, it has never been easier to run a multi-site business remotely.

However as business owners know all too well, there are always some things that can’t be monitored from the comfort of your office, emergency lighting testing and legionella temperature monitoring for example.

These essential tests are required by law and there are heavy penalties imposed on companies who don’t carry them out, however they have to be carried out on a regular basis and are time consuming, emergency lighting discharge tests take 3 hours. If your sites are remote there is the additional time and effort traveling to and from site which all costs you money.

Asset Handling can now happily relieve you of this burden with the enhancement to the popular Asset Insight Manager (AIM).

AIM is an integrated system which monitors and provides real time insight into all aspects of an assets performance, many companies use it to monitor a variety of assets, cutting unnecessary downtime as problems are identified early and can be more easily rectified.

AIM now has the added capability of automating compliance activity, for legionella compliance it offers automatic flushing and software controlled temperature ranges which are monitored every minute. There’s also frost protection, freeze alarms and intelligent monitoring which detects if water becomes stagnant. For emergency lighting there would be no more standing around while carrying out full discharge tests as AIM can automate the process along with function checking and lux level readings.

AIM automated compliance modules are not restricted to legionella monitoring and emergency lighting testing, as the software is bespoke it is able to monitor a wide range of measurements in real time, sending instant alerts via email or text for any non-conformities or faults found, so you are immediately aware if any remedial action needed to be taken.

AIM’s web based monitoring means you have control from anywhere in the world, you can literally sit back and relax knowing all your compliance checks were ongoing and your assets are in good hands.

If all the time saved isn’t enough to pique your interest, just to summarise the benefits, by installing AIM you can reduce man hours, fuel costs, human error, training costs and your carbon footprint. Return on Investment is on average six months for remote sites so you will see the benefits within the first year of install!

AIM may stand for Asset Insight Manager but it could just as easily be Amazing Imaginative Moneysaver!
