Toronto (PRWEB) September 12, 2013
Intelex, a leader in Environment, Health, Safety, Quality (EHSQ) management software announced today the launch of its new application, Management of Change (MOC). This application is ideal for those subject to OSHA’s Process Safety Management (PSM) requirements, as well as those implementing PSM as part of a best practices management approach. MOC ensures that procedures for managing change adequately address the requirements stipulated under OSHA 1910.119.
MOC can also assist those looking to implement an organizational or operational change, regardless of whether change management is regulated in that industry. MOC can facilitate all types of change, from mergers and acquisitions, to policy changes, to supplier changes, as well as product changes and enhancements. MOC’s integrated approvals, checklists and tracking makes it usable for any organization looking to reduce risk when implementing change. It ensures alternatives to the chosen change have been considered and the operations and employees are fully aware of and ready for the change to be implemented.
“History is littered with examples of industrial accidents caused by the inability to safely manage change,” said Eric Morris, Sr. Product Manager of Applications. “Here at Intelex, we empower our customers to effectively manage change through a structured system of checklists, analyses, electronic tasking and approval routing. Our system is designed to be robust and auditable, while providing the flexibility to adapt to our customers’ business processes and industry best practice”.
Currently, paper based MOC systems are the most common way to track changes and can be inefficient and slow, lacking audit trails and transparency. Paper changes are often problematic when trying to communicate to the organization, as there is no ability to offer global visibility of changes. This lack of organizational knowledge sharing can cause important analysis steps to be missed and potentially result in large scale disasters.
MOC uses a standard 7 step change approach which, while providing the rigor of a structured process also offers the flexibility to adapt to a company’s established procedures. MOC is offered alongside a host of other Intelex PSM apps which are often bundled together to offer a complete risk management solution.
“Intelex has been focused on developing a comprehensive risk management offering and MOC plays an integral role in identifying risk and mitigating it before an incident occurs,” said Mark Jaine, President and CEO of Intelex. “Solutions to manage organizational change are in high demand, especially surrounding OSHA’s PSM requirements; we’re excited to bring a management of change solution to market where users can focus on a proactive risk management approach, using a configurable platform that can be adapted to their established processes.”
