Health & Safety Management Technology Patent Filed by ApexOD

Patent Now Pending on Cost Saving Health & Safety Program Management Technology from ApexOD
Aug. 31, 2010 - PRLog -- Minneapolis, MN  - A U.S. patent has been filed by ApexOD for its implementation of facility management programs.  The invention relates to systems and user interfaces for management of compliance and associated training related to criteria such as workplace health and safety.

“Completion of the previously provisional patent application is the culmination of a decade long research and development effort,” says Duff Dorschner, co-inventor and President of ApexOD.  “We spent twenty five years immersed in health and safety industry issues.  The past ten years comprised a very deliberate process of assembling proven technology in inventive new ways to address the fundamental issues that face health and safety programs in the workplace.  The patent will formalize this key intellectual property asset for ApexOD.”

Dorschner explains, “A key element of the invention is the connectivity between identified hazards, written plans, job descriptions, and training.”  ApexOD’s focus on outcomes led to a unique approach that automates the process of identifying, assigning, and tracking to completion key risk reduction steps that had previously been either overlooked or, at best, performed haphazardly in a time-consuming manner.  Dorschner continues, “Too many organizations were sold group or online training for a compliance checkmark, without any targeted connection to written plans, roles, or the risk reduction outcomes.  ApexOD technology can change that.”

“In addition, for many health and safety departments, ‘state of the art’ is paper, three ring binders, or static MS Word documents,” says Dan Schwarz, co-inventor and VP of Technology for ApexOD.  “For those organizations, prevalent in the K-12 education space, the cost savings, performance improvement, and risk reduction benefits are incredible.  For others that are cobbling together solutions using software designed for preventative maintenance or task management, not health and safety program management, this modular platform represents an efficiency and risk mitigation breakthrough.”

Schwarz continues, “The underlying system architecture is a key step forward for the market.  Different organizations handle health and safety in different ways, whether managing functions internally, supplementing with third party expertise, or entirely outsourcing the program management to outsiders.  For the first time, tools and technology for longitudinal data analysis, program visibility, and issue resolution are available no matter how an organization approaches health and safety program management.”
