Prime have been chosen by Goals Soccer Centres to provide an online accident & incident reporting system.
Goals run 46 FA affiliated 5-a-side football centres across the UK, and are about to open their 3rd centre in the United States, and employ over 700 people.
The very nature of 5-a-side football means that injuries and accidents will inevitably occur, but nonetheless the Goals Health & Safety team are committed to ensuring that their centres are as safe as possible and continually assess risks to make sure the best possible procedures and controls are in place, a process reinforced by detailed reporting directly to the Goals Board.
The Prime system was chosen as it gives each centre an accessible and easy method for quickly reporting any accident or incident, which then alerts the central safety team who can respond quickly. The key focus when setting up the system was to be able to quickly assess if an accident was preventable or not, and the Prime system was configured so that Goals existing investigation and follow up questions were followed on the online report form.
Prime Systems Director Paul Ramsell said “We have a good track record working with leisure companies, and our understanding of the needs of the safety managers in companies like Goals was a key factor in being selected to provide their reporting system”. Goals Health & Safety Manager Scott Kerr said “The team at Prime quickly helped us to get the system up and running, working how we wanted it to work, and since its launch we have had much better visibility of accidents and incidents across our centres”.
Prime has been extended to cover the new US sites and give the same level of visibility and awareness to ensure that the team in the UK are close to the action on the soccer pitch, as they are to the football pitch.
