Incident App
 
Our much anticipated Incident App is scheduled to be released the week of Sep. 9th!

Our first release allows app users to record injuries, illnesses and near misses. Administrators will have an option to transfer injuries and/or illnesses to the OSHA 301 First Report Form and the OSHA 300 Log and Summary.

Future releases will include the ability to document vehicle crashes, property damage claims, liability claims and more. 

We'll notify everyone via email as soon as the app is available for download in the app store.
 

   

Training App

Several of you have been taking advantage of our incredibly easy to use Toolbox Talk app, but did you know it does so much more than just document toolbox talks?

If you own an Enterprise Account, you can track all types of training with this app (i.e. Classroom, Practical, Online, etc.). You get reminders when training is due and it tracks all the training to make sure required training is completed in a timely manner.

We also have an upgrade that allows you to send emails to your employees with safety talks attached and includes an online quiz that must be completed in order to get credit for the training.

So many neat features and all at a very affordable cost!

Contact us to learn more about our Toolbox Talk/Training App today!




 
JSA App
 
If you haven't checked out our JSA App, you should! This app allows you to easily create JSA's or JHA's on the fly from your smartphone or tablet, and it also includes an option to build JSA's from your computer.
 

It includes preloaded safety hazards and controls and you also have the option to create your own custom hazards & controls. 

You can even review the JSA with your employees and have the digitally sign off on the JSA as confirmation that they reviewed it.
