E.on embraces the power and efficiency of ErgoWize
E.ON are one of the UK’s leading integrated power and gas companies – generating and distributing electricity, and retailing power and gas as part of the E.ON group, the world’s largest investor-owned power and gas company.
For an organisation of this scale that is spread across 50 locations in the UK and has 17,000 users of display screen equipment, there was a definite need to find an efficient way of ensuring compliance and resolving risks.
E.ON has been using ErgoWize since July 2009 and so far in 2010, 3136 users have completed the online training course and risk assessments. One of the key benefits of the ErgoWize software is the ability to customise the content and this is a feature that E.ON has utilised in creating additional risk assessments to cater for their hot-desk users which can be accessed on demand.
As the ErgoWize risk assessment is dynamic, when a number of the concerns are raised they can be instantly resolved by advice that pops up in response. As a result, E.ON have seen the number of issues raised average out at 1.2 per user.
The control of the training and risk assessment process is simplified by 3000 administrators all being able to access one learning management system (O-LAS). DSE responsibility is then delegated to the Managers who only see the users they are responsible for.
With the support of automated user management, a data file is automatically uploaded each week.
The Corporate Safety Policy & Projects Manager for E.ON UK commented “EssentialSkillz have constantly supported E.ON quietly and efficiently.”
