(PRWEB) October 31, 2006
P&H Mining Equipment (P&H), a global leader in the manufacture and service of large excavating and drilling equipment has selected the Incident, Audit and Corrective Action Management systems from Knowledge Management Innovations, Ltd (KMI). P&H will roll the multi-language system out to all global manufacturing and service locations in North and South America, Africa, Asia and Australia.
The Incident Management module enables quick, easy field-level incident reporting along with comprehensive, risk-based incident investigation, corrective action assignment and closure. The system also supports regional and corporate level rollup reporting with full statistical analysis of incident types, causes and costs in addition to formatted agency reports such as the OSHA 301 report and OSHA 300 log.
The Audit Management module enables behavioral safety observations, facility inspections and corporate audits. Key functions include integrated corrective action creation, audit summary and statistical rollup reporting, and location-specific checklists.
According to Ted Leamen, Director of Global Environment, Health and Safety for P&H, "Our company has always been committed to the safety of our employees, contractors and customers in our facilities and on our service sites around the world. As part of this commitment, we are implementing the most effective incident and safety audit system we found in the marketplace. This system is an extremely effective tool for reducing risk and maximizing worker safety."
According to Matt Airhart, Director of Business Development for KMI, "We are excited to work with P&H on this international implementation. As a company, they are clearly committed to leading their industry in safety."
P&H went through a six month selection process before choosing KMI's system. The primary factors cited in the final selection decision included the flexibility, performance and usability of the system, strength of statistical reporting, ease of integration with existing enterprise systems and industry reputation.
The web-based system is being implemented by an integrated team of KMI and P&H staff. Full system rollout is schedule for early November.
KMI delivers web-based software solutions that allow companies to control environmental impact, increase regulatory compliance, operate more safely and efficiently, and reduce corporate risk. KMI is a trusted supplier of EHS Management Information Systems (EMIS) to chemical manufacturing, oil & gas, construction materials, pulp & paper, heavy equipment manufacturing and mining industry companies ranging in size from hundreds to over a hundred thousand employees.
