Gary Doolin - Health Safety and Environmental Manager
Gary Doolin, Electrosteel’s Health, Safety and Environmental Manager, is responsible for overseeing their compliance and maintaining their certifications. Prior to using Mango, he found himself spending an increasing amount of time administering their paper based system. He had inherited the company’s manual, which had been in use for some time, and he decided to explore better ways of working as it became more difficult to manage.
Gary’s ultimate goal was to reduce the time spent managing the QHSE system and find more efficient ways of working. He made the decision that on-line software would benefit the organisation and make compliance simpler. Further still, he hoped that it would provide better engagement with employees on their QHSE systems and automate a lot of the more administrative tasks of operating a compliance system.
Knowing what he wanted to achieve, Gary went out to the market place and reviewed the online software available before selecting Mango. His reasoning for putting Mango at the top of the list over other products was around simplicity and ease of use. As Gary explains, “I was impressed with just how simple it was to use.”
Gary was also impressed with the ease of implementation which was carried out by Mango’s UK partner, Borne Safety. Mango was set up in very short space of time and he was soon getting used to the workflows which he also found easy to use.
At present Electrosteel are in their early days of using Mango but they are already reporting time savings and better communication surrounding their QHSE compliance activities. Gary particularly likes the ease at which he can update management system documents and communicate them to employees.
Longer term Gary feels that Mango will continue to reduce stress and save them more time on managing their QHSE compliance.
