Before digitizing their health and safety processes, up to 200 people in McAleer & Rushe were using a paper based, in-house system to report hazards. Aside from issues with delays in reporting, the old system left the potential for 'fudging' data when filling out reports all at once.

Using the EcoOnline system has brought live updates on hazards and incidents to Declan McLogan and his team.
Using the mobile app, 14,000 hazards have been reported across 25 sites in the UK in the last 12-13 months. The mobile app has allowed for on-the-go hazard reporting, with employees being able to attach images and pinpoint exact locations for their observations.
With the app and Incident Reporting Software, data collected during the week are now fed into a monthly report. Management can now focus on what has gone wrong and areas that need attention.
