At ComplianceQuest, we have tremendous experience in the area of quality and compliance. We've led the digital transformation and automation of quality processes for customers in over 800 locations worldwide. With the current COVID19 pandemic, enterprises are forced 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.
As it happens, early in 2020 we acquired LifeGuard Solutions, a comprehensive Environment, Health & 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: Environmental, Health and Safety, Risk Management, Supplier and Contractor, Sustainability, and Training compliance. With LifeGuard on board, we're now building a truly integrated QHSE (EQMS + EHS) that'll empower business leaders across sectors to take advantage of a combined technology solution.
The Cost of Managing Risks Across Two Different Quality And Safety System
There are several stories of how a lack of focus on mitigating safety risks has led to significant challenges for organizations. In addition to direct damage to people affected by a mishap, any accident also has an impact on production, the cost of production, employee productivity as well as the reputation of the business. Then there are other costs incurred for emergency response, medical care, loss of productivity, insurance premiums, possible penalties to be paid to regulatory agencies, and litigations.
On the other hand, putting safety ahead of quality can also lead to stagnation and be detrimental to growth.
The trick is to find the right balance, drive quality excellence, embrace a safety culture, while simultaneously pursuing growth and managing risk. This can be achieved with a unified and integrated system for quality and safety.
At ComplianceQuest, now with the LifeGuard Solutions acquisition, we’re well placed to offer this to our customers.
