A new workplace safety reporting system aims to reduce workplace accidents by making it easier for employees to report hazards in their facilities anonymously. While the system is appropriate for a wide variety of industries, the manufacturer suggests that it may be particularly useful in healthcare settings.
The WorkplaceAware solution includes a MessageQube mini cellular desktop printer, which receives text and photo messages from any cell phone and prints safety reports in real time. Using a mobile app compatible with Apple and Android operating systems, healthcare workers with smartphones can photograph and document observed safety hazards and immediately submit detailed reports up to 600 characters in length to their supervisor’s MessageQube. A flashing green light alerts managers of a new pending message.
