More than Just Toolbox Talks!

Let’s start with the obvious, our Toolbox Talk app works great for documenting safety talks, but did you know you can also import your own custom documents, such as company-issued Safety Bulletins, Newsletters, Accident Summaries, etc. and use our app to distribute them to your employees?

 

Many of our subscribers have figured this out…they create a weekly or monthly safety bulletin, newsletter, accident review, etc., and upload it as a PDF to the app.  They then use the app to assign their supervisors the responsibility to review the document with employees.  Each employee, then signs off on the document, using the electronic signature function built into our app, as proof that they reviewed it. It really is a great way to distribute important documents to your employees!

Checklist Updates
We added a new question to the Construction 1926 Checklist under "Cranes” to address "Operator Evaluations”. Effective February 7, 2019, OSHA requires that operators must be evaluated and deemed qualified by a demonstration of skills and knowledge to operate the equipment safely. This question was added to address this requirement and references 1926.1427(f)(1) thru (7).

We added 4 new questions to the General Industry 1910 Checklist under "Electrical Safety”. This is our largest category with 38 questions. We try to limit questions per category to no more than 20-25 but unfortunately, there’s just too much in this standard to limit the questions.The new questions added include:

Electrical equipment free of significant damage (i.e. dents, corrosion, etc.)? 1910.303(b)(7)(iv)

Electrical equipment firmly secured to surface? 1910.303(b)(8)(i)

Electrical equipment adequately protected against damage? 1910.303(g)(2)(ii)

Damaged electrical equipment removed from service? 1910.334(a)(2)(ii)

Did you know that Safety Reports has 16 checklists that come preloaded with our app and we’re planning to add a new one in March for conducting "Vehicle Inspections”.
