A refreshing take on EHS management: Reducing incidents with a new reporting channel - Case Study
For Finnish brewery company Olvi Limited, safety has never been better. And Lauri Multanen, Operations Director at the chain, credits part of that success to the implementation of the Quentic EHS mobile app. Discussing its previous poor records, Lauri Multanen says: “We have not had a very good safety history. We had lots of small accidents, nothing major or serious, but too many minor incidents. For the past five years we have been working on this, and now we have actually been able to cut the amount of incidents and accidents down to almost zero. We only had one minor accident within the past year, and Quentic has been a very important part of the whole process of reducing incidents within that time.”

Safety management at your fingertips
Knowing that a mobile application would lead the organization towards a safer and more modern future, Olvi ultimately found Quentic, a partnership that would go on to improve its EHS statistics dramatically. On selecting the app, Lauri Multanen says: “We had a couple of demos from similar kinds of applications, and we saw three or four different options in total, but we chose the Quentic App because it seemed to be highly visual, simple to use and practical, and consequently would fulfil our need well.”
As a result, Lauri Multanen believes that taking EHS management mobile was the right step: “We can now do nearmiss reports on the spot as soon as a problem is spotted or something happens. We can log the accident in the system there and then, and take photographs at the scene and add that to the report. You can have a whole story created in the same system and have it done on-site. You can also pin your location to a map in order to identify your location when conducting these reports, which is also helpful. The app is compatible with all modern mobile phones, so it can be used site-wide very easily.”
Olvi also implemented different checklists and inspections, such as 5S audits, into the Quentic App. That makes it much easier to gather all relevant information and include photos in the reports. The Quentic App creates 5S index trends automatically to show the development and encourage people to keep EHS standards on a high level. Much of the process is automated to save customers time when reporting.
