MMS Safety Management Module
MoDOT lacked a comprehensive system to collect and share important safety data while at the same time improving our data collection process for claims and injuries. We needed a way for every employee to understand how their work unit was doing at working safely compared to others. The same was true for our District and State leadership teams. Countless hours were spent combining spreadsheets to get what a dashboard could give us with a click of a mouse. This innovation consists of simple, yet sophisticated dashboards with safety related visuals to aid employees and leadership in making important safety decisions. We began by assembling a Statewide Team to ensure we had input from all stakeholders. The team identified 10 core reporting elements that were used to build fast and efficient reporting visuals. Users now have several complex and sophisticated dashboards to quickly view critical safety data from the State level all the way down to each Org. This innovation also includes a new interface with MoDOT U that notifies supervisors when employees do not have the required safety training. The MMS dashboards are now considered a one-stop shop for safety observations.
Benefit and Implementation
This innovation improves safety by providing a dashboard to view and report on all things related to safety. It also provides a safety score and provides critical safety data for every employee to access.
