More than 50% of safety managers we talk to are not satisfied with their safety reporting systems – primarily due to the amount time it takes to run reports – and the inability to customize reports.


Our customers on the other hand use Guardian to:

  1. Customize observation or inspection checklists
  2. Schedule reports for automatic delivery to any email address
  3. Monitor real-time dashboards

Why Guardian Safety Software?

Our customers continue to choose S&W Technologies software to keep their employees safe while streamlining processes across safety, maintenance, quality, construction, and transportation departments.
In fact, 80% of nuclear power plants across North America have implemented one or more of our best in class safety software products to manage safety observations and inspections to reduce employee injuries and fatalities.


INJURY ELIMINATION:  Guardian has been designed from the ground up with one goal:  Eliminate employee injuries and fatalities.  Our mobile app platform allows employees to record observations and submit corrective actions in real-time.  The dashboard and reporting system is easily configured to immediately identify risks before injuries occur.  S&W works with clients to identify key indicators that can be monitored by our business intelligence module to proactively notify management of safety alerts before injuries occur.


EASE OF USE:  From a user perspective, Guardian is the easiest system on the market. Ease of use translates to rapid implementation and high user satisfaction rates.  Our customers confirm that ease of use is the number one critical success factor for employees recording high quality safety observations.  Our users promote Guardian’s ease of use to their colleagues, which facilitates a greater participation rate and enhances the overall safety culture.


FLEXIBILITY: Guardian can be configured to accommodate any safety, inspection, or audit process.  An unlimited number and variety of checklists can be easily created and maintained by the designated Administrator to accommodate continuous improvements as well as problem areas.  Our utility customers typically begin with their standard safety checklist covering behaviors and conditions but quickly realize that Guardian also supports other audits and inspections required for plant outages and maintenance.  The Human Performance Lead at Pacific Gas & Electric Diablo Canyon Nuclear Plant states that the Guardian Mobile App Platform facilitated their best safety and inspection results during an outage to date.


SCALABILITY:  Guardian is designed to scale easily with zero impact to the business.  The system can be configured to support a single location up to an enterprise-wide implementation with complete continuity.  The system supports up to twelve levels of an organizational hierarchy including independent operating company segregation while maintaining the ability to monitor key indicators across the entire enterprise.


INTEGRATION:  Large-scale implementations require systems integration to ensure both organizational hierarchies and employee information remain synchronized without manual data entry.  Guardian supports data imports from any HR system including PeopleSoft, SAP and others. Single Sign-On (SSO) is also available which allows employees to use their existing corporate username and password to access Guardian.  S&W worked closely with one of the world’s largest Oil & Gas Services company to successfully implement HR and organizational integration for over 60,000 employees worldwide.


SECURITY:  Guardian is a hosted Software-as-a-Service platform and as such, adheres to the most stringent data security standards.  S&W Technologies is extremely responsive to customer IT data security departments to ensure Guardian passes their annual security audits.  All of our customers require confirmation that their data is never “co-mingled” with other customer data.
