News Spotlight Chat in Microsoft Teams: The unexpected joy of courtesy

Lewis Carroll, author of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, once wrote ‘courtesy is a small act, but it packs a mighty wallop’. His words are oddly applicable to the online, locked-down world in which we currently live. Right now, without all the added communication that comes from face-to-face contact, simple courtesy is crucial to getting through the working day happily, with your colleagues on-side. Here, we’ll take Carroll’s maxim and apply it to how we use ‘chat’ in Microsoft Teams.

Cobra stands for Cloud-Oriented Business Risk Aggregator. Cobra is Mineral Blue’s inbuilt risk recording system.

Cobra isn’t intended to take the place of your enterprise risk management system, although it can function as a simple risk management system in its own right.

Instead, Cobra is an entry point for risk documents into the Mineral Blue workflow, and thus onto mobile devices.

We found based on long experience of real-world projects that vital risk assessment information can get lost in large enterprises.

This is especially true on large, multi-contractor projects, where contractors typically don’t share computer systems.

Using Cobra, your enterprise risk managers in London can produce risk assessments and have them viewed instantly by workers in St. Fergus.

By using Cobra with your Permit To Work System and your Isolations system, you can ensure that all risks are communicated and permits are locked down until the mitigations are fully understood.
