Company to implement fatigue management solution as part of comprehensive workforce management suite
LIVONIA, Mich. (January 24, 2012) – WorkForce Software, the leading provider of workforce management solutions for organizations with complex labor policies and stringent compliance demands, announces that TPC Group has selected its EmpCenter® suite to provide automated fatigue management as part of a comprehensive workforce management solution.
Headquartered in Houston, Texas, TPC Group is North America’s largest producer of several specialty chemicals, which are essential to the production of tires, carpets, gasoline additives and many other products central to our daily lives. TPC Group is dedicated to meeting and exceeding petrochemical industry standards for employee safety, such as the American Petroleum Institute’s Recommended Practice 755 (RP 755) for mitigating the risk of employee fatigue.
Determining that RP 755’s rules would be more efficiently managed through automation, TPC Group searched the market for a proven fatigue management solution. The company incorporated that search into an evaluation of workforce management solutions, because of fatigue management’s clear intersections with scheduling, time & labor, and absence management.
WorkForce Software’s EmpCenter Fatigue Management – Petrochemical Industry Pak offers the single proven solution for addressing RP 755, as well as the full breadth of workforce management functionality that TPC required.
“TPC Group’s approach to workforce management is emblematic of the practices that enable strategic HR,” commented Kevin Choksi, WorkForce Software’s CEO and Co-Founder. “They have taken a holistic view of labor activities—from absence management to employee fatigue—and invested in processes and technology that will simplify compliance and deliver unparalleled analytics across the entire organization. We look forward to not only helping address RP 755, but partnering with TPC Group to generate bottom-line results through workforce management”.
