Corrective Action follow through is key to the EHS approach known as “Find and Fix.” Capturing an incident or near miss is just the first step in a critical process that doesn’t end until the right follow up tasks have been completed. The VelocityEHS platform makes it easy for you to reduce enterprise risk by ensuring hazards are abated and the loop is closed on corrective actions.

How do you make sure other people do what they are supposed to do?
When incidents, hits, strikes, or near misses are reported, or when routine audits and inspections turn up issues that require attention, it is more than an EHS problem. It is an opportunity to reduce operational risk and threats to productivity. As the person directing EHS activities, it is also another item added to your very long to-do list. Especially if our company is following industry standards ISO 9001, ISO 14001 or OHSAS 18001, all of which have corrective and preventative action requirements.
Unfortunately, depending upon the issue, there may only be so much you can do on your own. You’re likely going to need help and sign offs from many other people in your organization. Managing that handoff is tricky, and without a consistent process or centralized system in place to assign, notify, track and report on corrective actions, it is easy for the task to fall into the bucket of incomplete tasks. Even when you have successfully handed off a project, and progress is being made, just getting a status update or estimated time of completion can be a full time job.
Furthermore, if you’re trying to manage the process with a system that’s reliant on paper, spreadsheets and emails, then your battle is that much harder — especially if you are tracking actions over multiple locations and trying to keep track of photos, reports or other items related to the tasks. The logistics of juggling time zones, schedules, preferred methods of communication, etc., add up to one giant headache. And in the end, you’re still on the hook for whether or not the corrective actions get completed.
Corrective Action is integral to EHS success, which is why the solution is available on the VelocityEHS platform as a standalone product, as well as integrated into our Incident Management, Audit & Inspections, Compliance Management, MOC, and Risk Analysis products. If you need to assign incident follow up tasks to others, and stay updated on their progress to ensure completion, Corrective Action can help.
Our solution helps you ensure your people are on task, that corrections are assigned and completed on time, and that EHS compliance remains transparent throughout your organization. We make it easy to define independent action plans and to avoid repeat incidents by identifying and resolving the highest-exposure areas of discovered weakness.
