SilkThread® launches new H&S module at Multimodal

We are delighted to announce the launch of the Health & Safety module of SilkThread®, which will take place at Multimodal at the NEC from 4-6 April.

Our new module has taken 6 months to create and has special relevance for those working in the transport and logistics sectors, whilst potentially being relevant to all businesses.

SilkThread - H&S Module

The module was created by the H&S team at Labyrinth, headed up by MD Ruth Waring and Transport Consultant Jennifer Dixon. Based on Ruth’s 20 years of H&S auditing experience in the logistics sector, the web application offers the ability for companies to self-audit and, at the same time, identify and resolve any gaps in their current H&S systems. A series of questions guides you through the maze of legislation, initially looking at the company’s processes before asking questions about the ongoing efficacy of these processes. Along the way SilkThread® H&S provides guidance and templates based on the HSE’s own materials for each area.  The modules is also compatible with OHSAS 18001:2007 and can be used by large and small organisations to get on track and stay compliant.

There are sections relating to Workplace Transport Risk and Occupational Road Risk as well as all the “normal” H&S areas to consider. Each question requires evidence to be uploaded into the cloud, enabling internal audits and management reviews to be done remotely. This saves time and money and means that only those depots or areas of the business with issues to resolve are subject to intervention.

Labyrinth’s MD Ruth Waring said “We believe this web application is truly ground-breaking.I have been working in this industry since 1989 and I have a good grasp of the hazards and risks which are unique to our sector. We have delivered a cost-effective approach to identify and address all the gaps without lots of travelling between depots and getting on peoples’ nerves. Self-audit also has the advantage of massively improving local knowledge and ownership of this vital area”.

Labyrinth can also offer companies help with training and implementation.
