Job Bank is Here!
 
When starting new inspections, you can now utilize a new feature called Job Bank which allows you to add your jobs or projects to the system through your Admin account and your inspectors will have access to them when starting new inspections.
 
For those familiar with our "Repeat Inspection" option, you'll find that Job Bank works much the same way, but with Job Bank, your inspectors will have access to all jobs that are entered to your account. When changes are made to jobs in the Job Bank, the changes only need to be made once and all inspectors will see them.

Please contact us if you'd like us to activate "Job Bank".

 
PlanGrid Integration

Big news! Safety Reports is now integrated with PlanGrid!

PlanGrid is a software platform designed to improve construction productivity. It replaces paper blueprints and is a collaborative platform for sharing construction information such as field markups, progress photos and issues tracking.

With this integration, you'll now be able to seamlessly share your Inspection Reports and Corrective Action Tracking updates via PlanGrid!

Please contact us if you'd like to learn more about this integration or if you'd like to activate PlanGrid integration for your account. 

  
Checklist Updates

Changes have been made to our General Industry 1910 checklist under the Aisles and Walkways category. We added questions to address requirements for keeping aisles and walkways dry (to the extent feasible) and we also added a question to address the maintenance of aisles and walkways (i.e. keeping them in good repair). We also updated references to include interpretation letters relating to aisle widths and markings.

We also added a new question to our Construction 1926 and CalOSHA Construction checklists under Scissor Lifts. The question addresses use of Personal Fall Arrest Systems when working in lifts. While not an OSHA requirement for scissor lifts, it's considered a "Best Practice" and based on subscriber feedback, we decided to include it.



New Chat Feature

You might notice the next time you access your Admin Account, we added a new "Chat" feature.


 
Be sure to take advantage of this new feature the if you need assistance with our Admin features!
