New Obs App is Here!

Many of you have waited patiently for our new "Observation App" to be released.  Well, wait no more! 

The Observation App is available for download from the Apple Store and Google Play Store.  

    

This app is designed to get employees more fully engaged in safety! It's like putting a digital "Safety Suggestion Box" in their back pocket!

The app allows you to document "one-off" observations, both positive and negative. You can add photos and assign a severity rating which escalates the issue up the chain of command.

The data is stored in a repository and "Observation Reports" can be scheduled for delivery at the end of each day, weekly or monthly.

There's a tracking feature that allows you to respond to each observation letting employees know their issues are being addressed.

New Inspection App Feature

Our "Inspection App" update due out in April will allow your inspectors to document the current weather conditions when doing inspections.

When Version 8.7 is released, you'll notice a new icon (an image of sun) on the home screen. 


 
It works similar to our GeoTag feature, when you tap the Weather icon, the app will display the most current weather conditions based on the nearest National Weather Service center.

You'll see an option to click "Save Weather" and when you print your report, the weather conditions will appear in the "Report Summary".
