To keep your workers safe, you need an open means of communication for sending and receiving information in real-time. While several communication channels have traditionally been used – from in-person meetings to paper logs to email reminders – many of these outdated methods are rife with inefficiencies.
You don’t have time for slow, disconnected communications. So, we’ve created 5 steps to help you streamline your workforce communications.
1. Two-way communications
From weather alerts to periodic compliance reminders – you need an effective way to send messages to employees en masse. Meanwhile, workers need convenient ways to report hazards or incidents to ensure safety is never compromised.
2. Multiple communication channels
Buying a separate solution for each communication type is expensive and inefficient. While SMS is effective for real-time alerts, email is better for detailed communications; just as voice calls have a time and place while live video is good for in-depth walkthroughs.
3. Automated data collection
To comply with audits, you need evidence of your actions. Similarly, if your industry requires certain ongoing tasks to be completed, records must be saved. However, the documentation required can be extensive, and the administrative burden can be huge if not automated.
4. Custom workflows & forms
Most distributed workforces need to fill out industry or company-specific forms to remain safe and compliant. Similarly, workflows and escalation protocols are unique to every organization, which means the ability to build custom forms or implement particular processes is essential.
5. Secure message delivery
If you can’t be sure your message will reach your workforce, or that workers can’t reach you, all other concerns become irrelevant. Any communication platform must be built on technology that guarantees all communications are reliable, secure, and happen in real-time.
