Milton CAT, the largest authorized Caterpillar equipment dealer in the United States, selects PowerAudit system from KMI for handheld facility safety audits.
Milton CAT, the largest authorized Caterpillar equipment dealer in the United States, uses PowerAudit to manage safety audits of all of its service, sales and warehouse facilities. The system, offered by Knowledge Management Innovations, LLC (KMI) is the most flexible and scalable environment, health and safety (EHS) handheld audit and inspection system available. PowerAudit utilizes a web-based interface for creating and managing inspection forms and automatically generating multi-format audit reports. The handheld component of the system utilizes PocketPC’s and the Windows CE operating system for performance and stability.
According to David Convery, EHS Manager for Milton CAT, “PowerAudit enables us to perform our safety audits faster, more thoroughly, and significantly reduces the time delay between conducting our audits and getting audit reports distributed. This time reduction is critical because it allows our sites to initiate corrective actions more quickly. This whole program is about reducing risk.” David went on to say, “We perform multiple audits at a lot of facilities every month. The reduction in time spent collecting and reporting on data has really enabled us to focus on accident prevention and the analysis of safety trends.”
PowerAudit technology was developed by Orchestral Corporation and is configured and implemented by KMI for use in Environment, Health and Safety (EHS) audit and inspection processes. The web technology that supports PowerAudit inspection form creation and data distribution makes the system ideal for large, multi-facility companies that are managing internal audit and inspection programs. PowerAudit can be integrated into any existing audit, inspection, or performance metrics data collection system. It can also seamlessly send data to any of KMI’s other EHS software solutions including their industry-leading, web-based Incident Tracking System.
