Our Toolbox Talk app allows trainers to conduct safety talks and have employee sign off as proof of attendance.
This works great when you have multiple employees at a worksite and someone, such as a foreman or supervisor, is onsite to conduct the training. However, many of our customers have what we call "lone" workers (i.e. service technicians, truck drivers, etc.) who aren't always available for in-person training.
With this new feature, you can create test questions for your toolbox talks and send them via email to your employees. They open the email, read the toolbox talk and answer the questions. Once they answer all questions correctly, they hit submit and the training is documented.
You'll find this new feature to be customizable, simple to use and affordable!
Our new Incident App is still in development and we expect it to be released later this Fall. This app will allow you to document OSHA recordables, near misses and more! Stay tuned for more information and updates!
Parking Lot Report
We recently had some work done to our parking lot here at Safety Reports to repair damaged concrete from this past winter.
The crews finished pouring the east entrance and then went on to work on the west entrance.
Looking out our office window, we noticed they apparently forgot to set up barricades. Not good.
It was just a matter of time before someone drove through the freshly poured concrete. So, our resourceful staff at Safety Reports took it upon themselves to fix the problem before it became a "real" problem.
So, we decided to have fun with it and used our Inspection App to document our findings and thankfully, disaster was avoided!
