Digitising Safety Walks

A new app is helping 2,500 Compass Group employees conduct 'safety walks' at food preparation sites in 25 countries.

Developed by field management software solutions company, Totalmobile, the app extends Compass Group's 'See Care Share' wellbeing model by providing leadership teams with a highly structured way of ensuring each location maintains and reports high  standards of kitchen cleanliness.


The mobile app integrates with Microsoft Outlook’s diary and prompts users to plan and undertake a number of monthly planned safety walks. Once on site, the solution features a series of tailored workflows that guide users through how to conduct a safety walk and schedule post-walk follow-ups.


Dashboards can be customised to individual user requirements, enabling them to capture their observations in real-time, identify actions and checks for future review, and record the entire walk journey as it is undertaken through the premises. In addition to maintaining a record of every walk undertaken, complete with photographs, the solution enables Compass to automatically schedule actions to address any safety issues observed during a walk around.


Federico Tonetti, Compass' Global Health and Safety Director, comments: "The Mobilise app has enabled Compass Group to automate practices that encourage conversations between leaders and unit team members on safety and any areas of concern. We are now able to ensure these walks are undertaken in a standardised manner across the globe, and that all findings and follow up actions are captured, recorded and actioned, so that nothing is ever overlooked or forgotten.


"We wanted a solution that would support our leaders to proactively participate with colleagues in a way that promotes joint problem solving and resolution in a timely way. Maintaining the highest standards of safety performance is a top priority for our organisation. This system enables us to monitor compliance KPIs with local and international regulations electronically and with full transparency, as well as identifying any potential improvements that will enable us to stay ahead of an evolving global safety agenda.


"Having the ability to conduct safety walks in a highly structured and consistent manner has made it easier to quickly search out potential safety issues and automate resolution efforts to the benefit of customers and employees."


Jim Darragh, Totalmobile CEO, adds: "The diverse capabilities and flexibility offered by our Mobilise solution has enabled us to provide a tailored cloud based mobile data capture tool that meets the exact needs of Compass Group. This has enabled them to automate much of the safety walk, the follow up and reporting in real-time. The tool that manages safety across their business is now consistent and compliant across the globe."
