Airbus has recently introduced an innovative strategic project to harmonise EHS management by implementing a global digital platform, called FISH (Federated Information for Safety and Health). FISH will leverage Cority's comprehensive solution across its 180 global locations -- replacing existing point solutions. Spearheaded by Gregory Mould, Airbus Head of Health and Safety, this is a wide-reaching initiative to support all levels of the organization and prepare Airbus for the digital revolution in EHS risk management.
Airbus selected Cority to provide the FISH solution after an extensive evaluation of multiple EHS software vendors. The multi-function selection team were convinced by the robust data security, purpose-built workflows, and advanced reporting capabilities, as well as the passion, customer focus and tenacity of the Cority experts.
Cority now forms the foundation of the FISH platform and will enable an integrated approach to EHS management for Airbus, providing a holistic view of EHS performance across all departments, sites, and countries. As well as the EHS specialists, the company's operational managers will use Cority, driving operational excellence and compliance by streamlining core processes to reduce risk to people, the environment, and the business.
"At Airbus, we are fully committed -- from the Executives to the teams around the globe -- to providing world-class occupational health and safety standards for those who make, maintain and operate our products," said Gregory Mould. "This single solution will help us deliver accurate analysis, clear reporting, and proactive risk mitigation, to continuously improve worker health and environmental protection. We chose Cority because their solution fully integrates environment, health, and safety, has huge functionality and multilingual capability, and is backed up by their firm commitment to continue to evolve the technology with our EHS goals in mind."
"Under Greg's strong strategic leadership, Airbus is breaking new ground in operational excellence and total worker health. We're proud to stand with Airbus in supporting its environmental and workplace health and safety initiatives," said Mike Jackson, Senior Director, International Markets, Cority. "Airbus has demonstrated unwavering industry leadership in understanding how strong EHS performance translates into business success and we look forward to working closely with them on enabling their Federated Information for Safety and Health strategy."

“It is a reminder of how challenging it must be for those who are mobility impaired to leave a building in an emergency. Even one flight of stairs can be a critical barrier to exit, with potentially devastating consequences.“There are thousands of other buildings around the world that have happily made themselves accessible to disabled people, but not thought about how those same people could make an escape in the event of an emergency, such as fire. This needs to change.
