GRITIT Managing Director, Jason Petsch considers the role of mobile technology in safeguarding facility managers and operators of business premises against litigious claims for falls and injuries.
When accidents happen, the blame game is never far behind. In an increasingly litigious society, when accidents occur on business premises they are often followed by legal consequences resulting from breaches in health and safety law. In such situations, evidence is everything and organisations found to be ill-prepared or lacking adequate records can struggle to mount an effective defence. However, as mobile technology permeates ever further into today’s workplaces - and into the world of facilities management - this could well be changing.
