"Electronic data collection is a critical and ever changing process required for determining working conditions. The transition from a paper based workplace to a digital workplace is constantly occurring everywhere. The change from paper reports, personnel files, inspections, batch records, and most all mail to their respective electronic versions is a revolution across industry. Companies have realized the gains from this transition which include: increased speed, lower costs, conservation of resources, improved communication and clarity, and “green” company image. These benefits all affect worker health and safety. A Pharmaceutical Operator who works in a facility with electronic, typed batch records can avoid hazardous mischarges or unsafe operating conditions using effective communication. Auditors that use electronic inspection forms on tablets for safety showers can instantly upload the results of inspections via wireless network and dramatically reduce the time needed to begin the repair process. The improvement of communication due to improved technology is not restricted to those currently working in plants."
