In 2011, OSHA reported an average of 6.8 work-related injuries per 100 full time employees in US hospitals. This injury rate is nearly double that of the average for all other major industries, including high risk sectors such as manufacturing and construction. Nick Kielbania and Adrian Hudson of the Environmental Health and Safety department at Boston Children’s Hospital have developed a web-based, device-enabled solution that provides a variety of fully-compliant software applications that assist with hospital emergency response and safety and support services.
Traditionally, the functions performed by this software are done manually and documented in many separate databases. The EHS suite provides a centralized dashboard for data collection, data analysis, and data-driven decision making relating to all aspects of emergency response and environmental health and safety. It is currently being used by nearly 2,400 users including BCH staff, independent contractors, engineers, and architects
• Integrated suite of fully compliant software applications for hospital emergency response, safety and support services
• The technology encompasses a set of algorithms that enable prediction of risk and risk mitigation
• The EHS suite increases the efficiency of safety staff members allowing them to spend less time reacting to accidents and more time proactively preventing them
