Why and How to Conduct an Internal Safety Audit

We take you through everything you should know before
conducting a safety audit yourself.

Near Miss Standardization

The BBSO Module integrates with our built-in OSHA 29 CFR checklists for Safety Auditing




Dashboard Widgets

In-depth and at-a-glance KPIs provide the business insight you need to truly understand the results of your inspections and the corrective actions needed to address outstanding business risks.
Set up dashboards according to your corporate hierarchy structure by defining user permissions and access rights, that way only showing users the sensitive data the need to see (such as to-do lists).

Mobile Device Compatibility

ERA's Imaxinar app gives you the ability to log a safety observation directly on the shop floor, out on the field, and even offline! All you need is a mobile device.

Why our clients love ERA


The software is easily used by all our users

We currently use the Audits, Incidents, and BBSO modules to manage our internal and external audits for EHS and ISO compliance and track issues and document related corrective actions. The customization of these modules was key to our decision to purchase the software.
