Digital tools keep safety ‘front of mind’ for all employees at imdex

02/05/2019

The introduction of iAuditor is just one of the initiatives to keep safety ‘front of mind’ for IMDEX – a leading mining equipment, technology and service company.  It also aligns with the company’s internal digital transformation program to significantly improve its customer service and business outcomes.

iAuditor is an inspection App, which is helping to raise safety and quality standards across IMDEX’s global business.  Commenting on the benefits of iAuditor, Lynda Tilbrook, IMDEX Global HSE Specialist, said:

“The user-friendly App and web platform enable us to collect consistent data, standardise operations, send digital reports, identify failed areas and get problems resolved – from anywhere on any device at any time.”

Other key benefits and features of iAuditor include: real-time incident reporting; simplified processes with actions automatically linked to IMDEX’s Quality Alert System; multiple languages; flexibility to customise for region-specific needs; and the elimination of paper-based forms, inspections and checklists – for example the company’s Take 5 hazard identification checklist.

Ms Tilbrook is confident the user-friendly design of iAuditor will encourage all IMDEX employees – not just operations’ teams – to download iAuditor and complete a Take 5 checklist before commencing all tasks – from driving vehicles and manufacturing equipment to lifting boxes and setting up trade shows. 

Ms Tilbrook added:

“Unfortunately, accidents can happen to us all – even when completing routine jobs – but taking the time to stop and think of the possible hazards before acting, could prevent serious injuries, time-off work and all the adverse associated consequences.”

Other initiatives IMDEX has implemented to keep safety front of mind include its imSafe 10 Safety Principles, Safety Data Sheets (SDS) and Mud Schools.

IMDEX’s Product SDSs are prepared by accredited third party Chemwatch and are available in multiple languages. Clients can request an SDS via the company’s AMC website.   Similarly, clients can request on-site support or tailored Mud Schools to learn more about the safe handling and optimal use of IMDEX’s comprehensive range of drilling fluids and equipment.
