Adding sketch elements to mobile forms to improve data collection

Loss reduction efforts and improvements in safe workplace behavior require the cooperation of everyone in an organization. Risk managers can encourage enterprise-wide participation in the collection of critical risk and safety data by making it easier for employees to report accidents and near misses. Providing users with the ability to capture this information from mobile devices increases the likelihood that incidents are reported quickly and accurately, regardless of where they occur.

Because the details of an accident or near miss can be difficult to fully describe using words, allowing for incident reports to be supplemented by attached files is essential. Yet even these data elements can fail to provide clarity in relation to the motion of vehicles, the sequence of events, or the intended area of focus within an image. For this reason, Origami Risk provides mobile app functionality that allows for the annotation of attached diagrams to ensure that risk managers and safety professionals have access to details they would not have had otherwise. read more

Doing more with less: How public entity risk managers can use RMIS technology to improve workplace safety

The development and implementation of a pre-loss model that measurably drives accident reduction and workplace safety requires effective collaboration between risk management and safety teams. Transparency and the sharing of information is essential to success. Both can be severely restricted when using spreadsheets or outdated legacy software. read more

When clients are actively engaged with their carrier, the organization gains the opportunity to provide higher value services that can help clients make strategic decisions and drive down costs. Paper-based and labor-intensive processes, legacy systems that struggle with modern requirements, and data siloed in disparate, unconnected applications all run counter to this effort. Origami Risk, however, provides several features that allow carriers to fully engage with their clients and deliver actionable, strategic data that can impact clients’ bottom line.
