“Safety is not Expensive. It is Priceless” – Launching an integrated platform for EHS & EQMS
ComplianceQuest recently completed the acquisition of LifeGuard Solutions, a comprehensive Environment, Health, and Safety Management (EHS) Solution that is also built natively on the Salesforce platform, just like our EQMS solution.
LifeGuard’s product includes the following solutions:
- Health and Safety
- Risk Management
- Supplier and Contractor
- Training compliance
LifeGuard Solutions was founded in 2015 with a clear mission to not only help enterprises meet health and safety regulations but also bring in a safety and health-first approach to employees, the environment, and the communities being impacted by a company.
Having been built on the Salesforce.com platform, the product is flexible and scalable from the get-go. Digitization of information was one of the major challenges faced by leaders who wanted to bring in automation and digital transformation to health and safety processes.
CQ decided to acquire the company with the primary vision of offering an integrated platform that could combine the value of both a world-class EHS and EQMS into a single environment.
We can now offer our customers an integrated Quality, Health, Safety, and Environment (QHSE) Management System. Additionally, the LifeGuard acquisition also gives us the ability to serve a new set of industries including Agriculture, Farms, Energy, Utilities, Retail, Chemicals, and Construction.
Needless to add, the current difficult situation caused by COVID-19 is forcing enterprises to look at new processes and workflows related to health, safety, and the environment. To implement these processes well, automation and digital transformation are crucial.
In this post, we highlight the key advantages of offering a holistic and integrated approach to combining EHS and EQMS processes:
- Robust Document Management is key to any health and safety process. A next-generation document management system is critical to ensure your health and safety documents are up to date, organized, and easily accessible.
- Automating your inspection, CAPA, equipment management and audit management process will make the job of health and safety leader a lot easier. Periodic audits, preventive maintenance of equipment, frequent inspections, and a data-driven approach to safety can be a game-changer.
- An EHS system has two primary goals. One is obviously to meet all regulatory obligations. But, the second one is to drive a culture of safety across an organization. An EQMS which drives visibility of data, quality events, and key metrics across supplier, customer, and internal dashboards can certainly play an important role in driving this culture of safety.
At the end of the day, our vision is fairly straightforward. We want to enable our customers to build a culture of both quality and safety, by embracing digitization and automation of processes.
While we’re at it, it certainly helps to have a data-driven approach to quality, health, safety, and environment. Both ComplianceQuest and LifeGuard have been built from the ground up on the Salesforce platform, and this makes it especially easy to integrate and deliver value in a holistic fashion.
