Industrial Hygiene and Safety Modules

DataPipe helps bring efficiency to your industrial hygiene and safety program. It covers a broad range of IH and safety topics (including workplace safety and safety training), and allows you to select modules that fit your unique requirements whether you're doing safety audits, tracking airborne chemical hazards, noise exposures or much more.  Review our comprehensive list below with descriptions to see which modules you require for your specific IH&S system.

Absences

Log when and why employees are absent from work including expected and actual return dates. May be used with Injury & Illness to link an Absence to an Injury & Illness case (and also to a Clinic Visit, Progress Note, Treatment Plan and/or Workers' Compensation claim related to that Injury & Illness case, if these Modules are present), but does not require the Injury & Illness Module.

Agent Parameters

Agent Release

Identifies location, date, time, etc. of spill or releases plus agents, amounts and other information. May be used with General Incidents to link multiple sub-incidents together. Requires the General Incidents Module and Agent Parameters Module.

Agent Use

History of where and when agents are used. Often combined with Work History to identify potential employee exposures.
