New Forms App
Safety Reports is very excited to announce a new product to be released in the coming weeks called SR Forms App. It will allow our subscribers to create custom forms and checklists using variable inputs, such as multiple choice, numeric, fill-in-the-blank, yes/no/NA, etc. It will include an option to Geo-Tag your location, add signatures and more!
This new product will work on your mobile device using iOS or Android operating systems and it will also have a web-based option. The web-version will include Virtual Safety Reports which gives you the option to use the app remotely without ever leaving your office!
The Forms App makes it possible to create electronic documents such as Confined Space Permits, Hot-Work Permits, Daily Activity Logs and more! And, of course, you can create simple checklists using this new app. If your goal is to eliminate paperwork, you'll want to check this out! More information coming soon!
Your "Go To" App
Thank you Allen Woffard for posting results from your LinkedIn survey asking your followers what their "go to" app is for inspections. Looks like Safety Reports came out on top!
Virtual Safety Reports (VSR) Demo
Completing inspections using VSR is incredibly easy...take a look at this video to see just how simple it is to use. Contact us if you'd like to learn more.
Once you collect your inspection data via the remote session, you complete your report by assigning pictures to our checklist. This demo below walks you through the process.
FMI Industry Report
FMI conducted a Procore-sponsored industry study to examine the top challenges facing construction today and how firms are leveraging technology to combat them.
This study addresses "investing in the right construction technology to improve financial performance, productivity, and reputation— and the mindset shift that’s driving top ROI".
Interesting to note that "Ease of Use" (e.g. field-friendly, mobile-first technology) is one of the top drivers in technology satisfaction.
Good to know that our developers here at Safety Reports always make that a top priority when building our apps!
Safety Reports has added a new checklist to our Inspection App which allows you to assess your company's efforts to comply with CDC Guidelines for the prevention and spread of COVID-19.
The COVID-19 Checklist can be used as a "stand-alone" inspection or it can be added to one of our existing checklists, such as the Construction 1926 or General Industry 1910 checklist.
