A Mobile-First EHS Strategy: Strengthening Preparedness, Compliance, and Communication With the Pioneer Program

Jacob Zollinger

In today's fast-paced business landscape, realizing true emergency readiness, compliance assurance, and effective communications across an entire organization have become more complex than ever. Different roles and industries face unique challenges, but one solution resonates across the board: a “mobile-first strategy” with an EHS mobile app. 

An EHS Mobile App to Maximize Performance with a Mobile-First Strategy

The ReadyKey Pioneer Program is your gateway to digitizing existing EHS processes and ushering in a new era of organizational performance. Gone are the days of cumbersome printed binders and the stress of assuring engagement and peace of mind across your workforce. Our program invites you to partner with us in an initial Proof of Concept journey, where you will experience firsthand the transformative power of mobile engagement.

Let’s explore how this approach enables Emergency Managers, Small Business Managers, and Compliance Communications Managers to devise and implement a mobile-first strategy. Whether it's streamlining emergency response, navigating compliance with ease, or assuring your communication reaches your audience effectively, the power of an EHS mobile app is undeniable.

The Emergency Manager

As an Emergency Manager, orchestrating seamless preparedness and response is your imperative. Consider this: In 2021 a total of 5,190 fatal work injuries were recorded and 2,607,900 non-fatal injuries, up 8.9% and 1.8% respectively from 2020 according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. This underscores the urgency for robust emergency management. A mobile-first approach offers:

  • Harmonized Response: Capitalize on native mobile applications to assure cohesive performance during critical incidents.
  • Holistic Compliance: Navigate environmental and safety complexities, mitigating risks and nurturing a culture of adherence.
  • Knowledge Empowerment: Elevate your teams' preparedness with timely, accessible information during emergencies.
  • Operational Excellence: Elevate performance across business units and facilities, assuring resilience during high-stress scenarios.

The Small Business Manager

For agile Small Business Managers, embedding safety and compliance into a resource-constrained organization is paramount. In a recent survey, nearly a third of employed adults said they didn't receive any formal workplace training. Employees need engaging training and easy access to safety and compliance resources. An EHS app allows for:

  • Customized Training: Equip your team with contextual knowledge, fostering a safety-first mindset.
  • Front-Line Engagement: Engage you workforce to assure safety and environmental compliance without the need for key supervisory personnel to “play safety cop.”
  • Streamlined Messaging: Bespoke mobile applications bridge gaps in safety awareness and operational efficacy.
  • Risk Mastery: Project commitment to safety, driving talent retention and attraction.

The EHS Compliance and Communications Manager

Effective communication and compliance are non-negotiable. In a Deloitte survey, 75% of companies face regulatory challenges in communicating compliance across their value chain. For leaders like you, a mobile-first strategy should encompass:

  • Seamless Connectivity: Reliably communicate regulations and expectations to field employees, contractors, and suppliers wherever they may be in the world.
  • Global Compliance: Navigate multi-regional compliance management.
  • Field-Empowerment: Empower field personnel with easily accessible compliance information, reducing reliance on constant communication.
  • Regulatory Trust: Foster regulator confidence through comprehensive, accessible compliance data.

Why The Pioneer Program for your EHS Mobile App?

The statistics speak for themselves – a mobile-first approach is a smart business decision. A recent survey found that 59% of web traffic worldwide occurs on mobile devices, and the upward trend shows no signs of slowing. This trend is echoed in Hootsuite and We Are Social's Digital 2021 Global Overview Report, which shows that the average internet user spends more than 4 hours per day on their mobile device. 

The Pioneer Program enables you to use this trend to transform challenges into opportunities. From Emergency Managers to Small Business Visionaries and EHS Compliance Trailblazers, we're here to illuminate your path to success with these core tenants of the program:

About the Program

The Pioneer Program is an initiative designed to empower forward-thinking individuals and organizations with early access to cutting-edge, no-code mobile application development. As pioneers, participants gain a unique advantage by being the first to experience and influence the development of our technologies and strategies. 

This program offers an exclusive opportunity to collaborate closely with our experts, providing valuable feedback that shapes the final product. By joining the Pioneer Program, you become an integral part of driving innovation, setting industry trends, and creating a future where possibilities are bound only by our ideas and collaboration.

Core to the program is a Proof of Concept instead of going straight into a multi-year SaaS agreement. This approach offers a distinct advantage over the latter for several compelling reasons.

  1. Evaluate the software's capabilities and alignment with specific needs before making a long-term commitment. This minimizes the risk of investing in a solution that may not fully address the unique challenges of your organization. Additionally, 
  2. Get a thorough assessment of the software's compatibility with existing systems and workflows, assuring a seamless integration. Unlike a multi-year software agreement that requires a significant upfront investment, a PoC involves a more manageable financial commitment. This allows organizations to allocate resources efficiently and make informed decisions based on real-world performance and results. Furthermore, 
  3. Enable stakeholders to gain hands-on experience with the software, fostering a deeper understanding of its potential benefits and limitations. Ultimately, choosing a PoC over a multi-year software agreement showcases a commitment to prudent decision-making. By prioritizing a thorough evaluation and alignment with organizational requirements, businesses can confidently invest in solutions that deliver tangible value and long-term success.
