WESguard - A Year in Review

As the holidays quickly approach, we can’t help but reflect back on the amazing year we have had with WESguard – our machine guarding application. We are so grateful to our clients, colleagues, family and friends who have helped to shape this ground-breaking technology.

2017 has been a year of great growth, new ideas and valued partnerships. We have made over thirty feature upgrades to WESguard, with most of the ideas coming directly from WESguard users. Here is a list of just a few of those new features:

  • Ability to determine custom guarding solutions with a built-in risk assessment tool
  • Enhanced collaboration within organizations with the ability to easily request updates on action items
  • Reporting features with built-in pdf print options
  • Enhanced risk-improvement graphing with the addition of a target line
  • Better understanding of risk improvements with tracking of original and current risk score for each machine
  • Greater communication with time and user stamped updates on action items
  • and so much more!

    We also implemented three new marketing strategies:

  1. Made Safe Partnership – Made Safe members get one month free on an annual subscription
  2. Free trial program - new users can try WESguard free for 60 days
  3. Referral program – Current users receive one month free when they refer a new client to sign up for WESguard

    So, with such a successful year behind us what do we have planned for 2018?

  • We are currently working on a built-in inspection/audit tool to help our WESguard users ensure that their machines stay safe long after the implementation of safeguards.
  • We are also planning a webinar with Made Safe in February, so watch your inboxes for further information.
  • We have received a lot of interest in developing an online community where organizations can share their machine guarding struggles and success. We will be investigating this avenue soon!

We are very excited for the future of WESguard and look forward to continuing in the journey with our clients and bringing on more partners in 2018!  Happy holidays from Workplace Engineering Solutions!
