“We’ve seen it all when it comes to safety management solutions”

Bridgestone’s HSEQ Specialist

Donesafe’s award-winning cloud-based solution is one of the fastest-growing end to end tech companies in the health and safety space and is considered a leading player in its industry.

Bridgestone Mining Solutions Australia (BMSA) joins the growing client list of industry leaders at Donesafe, from small to medium businesses but also the Enterprise household names such as McDonald’s, IAG, NAB, Vodafone, Telstra, and many more.

Bridgestone Mining Solutions Australia (BMSA) is Australia’s leading supplier of off-the-road (OTR) tyres for mining, construction, earthmoving, forestry, agricultural, and industrial applications, and is the Australian supplier of Topy Wheels and Rims.

The safety team at BMSA began the search for a system that could be scaled with business growth and configured to match current workflows across multiple locations. The Australian team was faced with requirements that had to be approved at a global level. 

Safety professionals have been kept on their toes with technology updates over the years. Paper-based systems just can’t keep up with the volume and accuracy when it comes to reporting, eliminating risks and complicated forms. As a business, we often hear this from safety teams, especially those who have been in this space for a number of years.

What prompted a change to Donesafe? 

BMSA takes employee safety seriously, the team holds a wealth of experience and knowledge around systems to improve workplace safety. Overtime the current process included a number of paper-based forms and disconnected systems which became a huge time drain for the safety team, not to mention being a reactive approach to safety. It was time to switch to a system that has intelligence and meets business requirements whilst following a proactive approach to ensure all employees are safe at all times.

Grant Kelly and Bruce Nicholls were the key decision-makers when it came to evaluating a safety solution for the company’s many branches across Australia and Papua New Guinea. Both contacts completed demonstrations and opted into a trial and to build their own workflows, forms, and complete configuration to ensure the system was exactly what the business needed.

The hands-on trial period and granular demonstrations in the backend of the system guided the conversations leaving all key stakeholders and safety leaders happy to sign the contract and confidently begin a partnership with Donesafe. 

“There’s too much of a time and financial risk for the whole organization when systems take too long to implement or are unable to complete the desired results down the track.”

The system needed to be configurable to accommodate business growth and changes over time. Each project reflects unique business needs which can be adjusted at any time by super admin trained Donesafe users in the business. This eliminates additional costs and time delays from a development team as changes can be made on the fly. 

How Donesafe helped? 

Donesafe is dedicated to helping companies improve compliance management solutions, allowing users to design their workflows and forms, as well as automating processes that safely connect apps, data, and employees seamlessly. Donesafe’s compliance software is configurable to individual client demands and improves safety throughout a wide variety of business processes.

BMSA relied on several standalone applications to manage safety and compliance. The rapid organizational growth within BMSA and the geographic footprint of expanding the business rapidly, real-time data, and mobility became a must.

“We decided to approach the new system roll out in phases which was easily facilitated with the Implementation team at Donesafe. Applying new systems to any organization can be daunting and we wanted to get it right first time.”

During the implementation process, a co-build approach was used to configure Donesafe (drag and drop, no code) to suit Bridgstone’s unique business requirements. Involved in the implementation were Donesafe’s Business Analyst – Meher Vig, Bridgestone Mining Solutions National HSEQ Specialist – Bruce Nicholls, and the health and safety team. Our implementation specialists offer dedicated support, training, suggestions, and guidance alongside the implementation.

Bridgestone checked off the following apps for their initial role out of Donesafe across multiple locations; Checklists, Incidents, Hazards, Learning Management, Contractor Management, & Visitor Registration with the plan to continue to increase the scope of their platform to retire current, outdated and disconnected systems within the business.
