Air Methods Selects EtQ Safety Management System
EtQ, Inc. is pleased to announce the implementation of EtQ Reliance Safety Management System (SMS) at Air Methods--an air medical emergency transport organization. Air Methods selected EtQ Reliance in order to fully automate its SMS and move away from its previous paper system.
Collecting, analyzing, trending and reporting of safety events are priorities for Air Methods' Safety Department. Using EtQ's automated SMS, Air Methods will now be able to create real-time safety reports on events that occur within their organization, and will be provided with a report of all related safety events across the enterprise.
"We have to handle safety processes across multiple disciplines, including medical, aviation, maintenance, communications, and more," stated Ed Stockhausen, Director of Safety for Air Methods. "As a result of implementing this system we will be able to take a single incident, roll it up into one master incident report, provide a total risk for each department, and associated actions to be taken for each event within the system. We are very excited about implementing EtQ Reliance within Air Methods and are very much looking forward to not only having a centralized data source, but utilizing the variety of features of this software."
"We are thrilled to have Air Methods on board with EtQ," stated Glenn McCarty, Chief Executive Officer at EtQ. "EtQ Reliance SMS is a great fit for Air Methods' safety reporting needs--it also provides them with a scalable solution that will expand with their global operations and is flexible enough to be configured internally without programming. We are pleased to welcome Air Methods to the EtQ family."
