The Occupational Safety team process over 1,000 accident and incident reports a year following a paper based process and an Access database that is now unsupported.
The University is implementing a new cloud-based system (Info Exchange from The Alcumus Group) to support the processes for Incident Reporting and Investigation. The new incident reporting and investigation system (“IRIS”) will replace the current paper-based process, improving efficiency, ensuring compliance with government legislation for the reporting of incidents and with GDPR. The solution will enable worldwide access to all relevant parties anytime, all year round, and facilitate access to data in real time.
A dedicated project team has been created, with members from the Safety Office and IT Services working together to ensure the new service is implemented and embedded across the University, allowing the University to meet its legal obligations.
