Continuing with our introduction to Safety Analytics Premier, we’ll explore the next set of gauges that are part of the Premier Version –Training, Equipment, Apparatus, PPE, and Emergency Operations. Keep in mind these are just half of the total gauges that make up the Premier version of Safety Analytics. Safety Analytics Premier [Part 1] explored the first five gauges.
Gauge 6 – Training
“Are members of my department meeting agency expectations for Safety and Risk Management training?”
The beauty of this gauge is that it is directly fed by data collected in JPRs found in the Training 3.0 Module. Since JPRs are uniquely created by each agency, your organization can build JPRs relevant to your safety programs.
It’s easy to assign a 1500 status to a JPR. Simply check the box indicated below and that JPR will begin feeding its data to the Training Gauge.
Gauge 7 – Equipment
“Is my equipment NFPA compliant and is it being annually tested?”
Thanks to multiple enhancements to our Maintenance Module, you are now able to ensure your equipment is being testing according to NFPA standards. Improvements to this widely used module include the addition of NFPA-specific categories, subcategories, and inclusion of an NFPA Annual Test maintenance type.
Gauge 8 – Facilities
“Are my facilities being inspected according to NFPA 1500 standards?"
This gauge keeps you up-to-date on facility inspections as defined in NFPA 1500 9.2 and Annex F.
This gauge will also tell you if your agency’s facilities have been inspected monthly for safety and health hazards (9.2.2, 9.2.3.). It will also let you know if each facility has been inspected on annual basis for overall code compliance.
Gauge 9 - PPE
“Does every combat-ready member of my department have NFPA compliant PPE? Is that PPE being inspected and maintained according to NFPA standards?”
Good things just keep happening to the Maintenance Module! This time it’s all about PPE. For the first time, you can assign ensembles of PPE to each person in your department. With just a few clicks you can easily check the inspection and in-service status of every piece of turnout or wildland PPE.
Gauge 10 – Emergency Operations
*“Does my agency have the NFPA-required operational documents like SOPs? Have members of my department completed NIMS courses?” *
This gauge shows you know at-a-glance who needs to complete essential NIMS courses. It also helps you prioritize the need for SOP and department policies related to emergency response and operations.
