The Safety Solution Helping Companies Reduce The Risks Around COVID-19

Sponsored Article by OneLook Systems

Since the outbreak, Irish safety software company OneLook Systems has been playing a critical role in helping companies put in place additional COVID-19 controls for its large number of
pharmaceutical, medical device, food & beverage and technology manufacturers.

Pat King, CEO of OneLook Systems explains:

‘OneLook Systems has a large multinational client base, especially in the pharmaceutical sector. It’s imperative that clients such as, GSK, Baxter, Regeneron, Sanofi and Abbott Vaccines, all of which are at the forefront of the fight against COVID-19, keep working as normal. This also means that they may need to continue to bring employees that are currently working remotely, as well as outside contractors, onsite daily.

These companies must have absolute confidence that every single contractor or visitor has adhered to their COVID-19 standard operating procedures. Making sure they are adequately trained and are compliant with the new procedures before they arrive on site is the key. Once they are on-site it is too late. This is where the software-based controls that OneLook Systems provides are proving so invaluable.’

As a result of the work it is doing to keep their clients’ workforces safe and healthy, OneLook Systems has launched ‘SafePermit FrontDoor’ which is being used by companies looking to ensure
that they have COVID-19 specific controls in place. This is not just vital for companies while they stay operational but also as they prepare to reopen their distribution centres, manufacturing sites and office locations.

Getting back to work quickly and safely is important for every person, business and government. There are some crucial steps in the SafePermit FrontDoor solution that can speed this process up while dramatically reducing the risk of unnecessary exposure, such as remote monitoring and clearly defined risk controls.

Most importantly SafePermit FrontDoor can be in place within 48 hours and needs no additional hardware or software to be installed. Customer Success personnel will assist all new users fully during the roll-out and train key personnel via virtual classrooms.

In these chaotic times, ensuring the health and safety of people is a high priority. OneLook Systems can help organizations across the globe to continue to operate as normally as possible.’ Brendan Griffin, COO, OneLook Systems.

Editors Notes

Below are some of the reasons why ‘SafePermit FrontDoor’ is being deployed to decrease risks relating to COVID-19.

  1. Our solution ensures that contractors and visitors cannot come on site until fully trained in COVID-19 procedures. All contractors will be automatically notified to access on-line symptom awareness and safety procedure policy videos and questions. This is done prior to coming on site.
  2. Any unnecessary exposure to COVID-19 can be avoided through robust electronic work process controls. These COVID-19 controls ensure that all planned on-site work is essential and follows your processes.
  3. Contractors, visitors and employees are not going to come on-site if they don’t have confidence that the right systems are in place to protect them.
  4. Health and safety leaders gain confidence in the fact that all contracting companies, large or small, are 100% compliant to their COVID-19 training and standards. All contractor companies looking to perform work on-site must successfully complete questionnaires and get documentation approval in order to be eligible for work.
  5. Companies will have absolute certainty that anyone coming to site will be checked for proof of booking, verification ID, and other relevant checks for security approval, thereby ensuring the safety of site employees.
  6. If an employee tests positive for COVID-19 then electronic records enable health & safety leaders to retrieve, in seconds, all visitor and contractor details together with locations of work. This decreases
