webOHS is a web-browser based solution that acts as an add-on to your standard winOHS solution. It allows your employees to access their own information (or own employees for managers) via a web browser.
There are some major benefits in using the functionality of webOHS:
Entry focal point
As your employees can now modify their own information (within security privileges), the onus of entry now is spread amongst many people rather than yourselves. This is a big time saver for your payroll and HR personnel.
Without webOHS employees often rely on specific staff members for any information.
With webOHS access is available at all times, not just when those staff members are
available. This allows for more pro-active process.
As there is no intermediate step to the placing of information in winOHS you can
generally expect better accuracy of information. No more Chinese whispers.
As information is more readily available, and a seamless process available for entry,
compliancy can be better met.
Cost savings as a result of the above benefits. It is expected that once implemented, the
costs of processes will reduce.
Version 1 has the following functionality available:
The central display is the calendar which allows an employee to see all types of events in a monthly (or other timeline) calendar. Managers can see many employee items at a time,
which gives greater understanding of resource allocation and usage.
Leave management includes the ability for employees to view their leave or leave accruals
and make requests for leave. Managers can approve or deny leave.
Employees can view any training and make requests for training they'd like to attend.
Managers can view as well as approve or deny training requests.
Employees can view performance review dates or managers can view when performance
reviews are to take place for their employees.
Anyone can record an OHS incident to start the process rolling. These can then be escalated through the normal means (for example email alerts). OHS co-ordinators or managers can view incidents and modify details.
As with incidents, identified hazards can be recorded by anyone and escalated and managed by co-ordinators or managers.
Policies and Guidelines
Employees can view their profile and make changes to information such as changes in
telephone numbers or personal email addresses
