He needed something he could quickly implement himself that was also cost effective. That’s when he found Quickbase. In working with the Quickbase team, Matyoka said he has streamlined the system by creating standard work polices that have been implemented across the organization.
He has also written formulas into Quickbase to calculate recordable rates, Total Recordable Incident Rates (TRIR), Days Away, Restricted or Transferred (DART) and Lost Time Incident Rates (LTIR), which is needed for OSHA record keeping and benchmarking against the industry.
Even with a minimal tech background, Matyoka said he was able to build out these applications.
“If you can Google, you can use Quickbase,” Matyoka says.
The company is also currently using Quickbase to implement and track job hazard assessments in two of the company’s seven manufacturing plants with plans to introduce it in others next year.
Compliance is Key
The company has plans for additional Quickbase applications including one tracking workers compensation costs.
Compliance is one of the primary responsibilities of Matyoka’s job. There are many rules and regulations set by OSHA, city, state and federal regulations that must be met in order to stay compliant and keep workers safe.
