Some additional information about the FOCUS360 system:
Q. I work in (for example) a chemical manufacturing and
warehousing company. How is this program tailored to us?
A. The warehouse and manufacturing system option has been tailored for
work in your environment through the workplace inspection form - which
would list typical hazards and working conditions within that environment
AND the policy and procedures manual, which does the same. These and
other forms, resources and online tools are based on Australian Standard
Q. How secure is my company information?
A. No one can access your company information unless they have your login
details and our systems are regularly put through the vigorous industry
standard security test by Pure Hacking and have never failed.
Q. Can I edit the format i.e. add extra categories in risk
ratings or incident types?
A. The risk assessment tool (tasks) allows you to set risk ratings of
specific hazards you encounter and incident reporting form is built on
feedback from insurers, customers and three WorkCover/WorkSafe
Authorities (SA, Vic, NSW) and has built in menus for incident type, body
part injured etc. We also have an overall Member Risk Rating function
which shows you at a glance how well you are performing with regard to
Q. Are there different levels of access for different employees,
or is it single access only.
A. The system works on one access per workplace location. Employees do
not need access as the ship is 'steered' by one person. We can give you a
few accounts, but only one account will receive the email reminders when
tasks fall due. Some companies have 100 or more locations and the
administrator - head office - account can view each of the sub accounts.
Employees are engaged however - for example - staff inductions are
sent as a reminder every two months. Login and complete a WHS induction
with a staff member as some questions asked are for the manager, whilst
others are for the employee. Similarly with the WHS consultation and
incident reporting tools.
The system is set up to make WHS easy by telling you what to do and when.
You login when required and/or if you need to record an incident.
Q. Do I need to load anything on my computer to use this
A. No - this is a cloud based online system and your member account
is 100% secure. There is no complicated or expensive software to install.
We can open an account and get you working in less than 1/2 an hour.
Q. How much space will I have to add information, and where is it
You have unlimited space to upload documentation and most of our tools
are online and are saved on our two servers. Maximum file upload is 3Mb,
but you may upload as many files as you see fit.
Q. What back-up is there if the system goes down?
A. There are two servers - one in Canberra ACT Trans and one in
Melbourne. Backed up once per month offsite. In six and half years we
have had not one single technical glitch, much less a system shut down.
