Houston, Texas (PRWEB) February 12, 2009
Syntex Management Systems, Inc., world's leading provider of Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) software solutions, announced today that Alyeska Pipeline Service Company ("Alyeska") selected IMPACT ERM® Suite as their company wide, fully-integrated electronic incident, investigation, and action item management software solution. IMPACT ERM® Suite is a comprehensive system that improves company culture on how losses are perceived, documented, analyzed, and ultimately prevented through the use of leading tools including Job Loss Analysis, Loss Prevention Observation, Near Loss Investigation, Loss Investigation.
The Loss Prevention System (LPS) is a broad-scoped management system oriented towards reducing and eliminating all losses to include injuries and accidents, environmental incidents, equipment downtime, financial impacts, lost work time and productivity. The process is primarily proactive with most of the documentation and analysis occurring before an incident occurs. Utilizing the Self Performance Safety Assessment, workers perform activities safely, which leads to the steps and documentation to perform it safely. Root causes are identified and appropriate preventive actions are documented and tracked to closure. Trends can be analyzed, monitored, and utilized to focus the development of prevention actions and programs.
IMPACT ERM® Suite will enable LPS by fully streamlining the incident reporting, investigation and risk discovery process resulting in an advanced understanding of all types of hazards and risks. Syntex continues to raise the bar in facilitating collaboration through its software suite, empowering employees and contractors from the front office to field operations, to easily and efficiently report incidents and manage action items.
