eplas What you should know about data collection

eplas is an occupational health and safety management solution for the areas of quality assurance and environmental protection which can be used in all areas all the way up to QM-effective testing and was awarded the IT Innovation Award for Medium-Sized Business Initiatives in the area of e-learning at Cebit 2011. The individual modules Blended Learning, Hazardous Substance Management, Hazard Assessment, Work & Operating Equipment, Audits & Checklists, and Health Management access common master data. Sensitive data is stored in encrypted form in the master data bank. The health management module data is additionally secured and encrypted separately.

TLS / SSL encryption via https should be used to ensure the secure transfer of data between the server and your browser.

Exception – Health Management

In the Health Management module, it is necessary to enter personal data including date of birth and private address in addition to the existing data (first name, surname, personnel number) for the administration of accident reports as well as recommended, mandatory or preventive healthcare examinations.

The following precautions have been taken against unauthorised access:
  • The data in question is stored in a separate table separate from the employee data.
  • The data is encrypted in accordance with AES 256-bit guidelines with a customer-specific key and can only be decrypted with this key.
  • Access is only granted to authorised users via the immediate entering of the password.
There are separate user authorisations for health management, especially for those areas where the data can be viewed:
  • Certain data, such as in the employee master record, can only be viewed with appropriate authorisation and by re-entering the user password.
  • The data cannot be viewed outside the Health Management module.
  • The logging of an accident report, which may have to be carried out by anyone, does not contain any of the data concerned.
