5 Steps to Take After a Safety Incident

You've worked hard to train your employees and inform everyone on the job site how to best prevent a safety incident. Unfortunately, that doesn't mean they won't happen. Read More...
Ad Hoc Inspections

Safety Reports has come out with a new option for documenting your inspections. If you'd prefer not to be constrained by having to use a checklist when documenting your inspections, than this new option might be your solution! 



We call it Ad Hoc Inspections.
Ad Hoc Inspections doesn't use checklists. Instead, you manually type in your observations (or you can use voice dictation). You can record both positive or negative observations "dynamically" as you complete your inspection.

Ad Hoc inspections still gives you the option to add photos, assign severity ratings, identify responsible parties, provide recommendations, and all the other great features that come with our standard checklists.

You can even use our new remote inspection feature, Virtual Safety Reports (VSR) with Ad Hoc Inspections.

And, in case you're wondering, yes, our unique "photo-based" option still works with Ad Hoc Inspections as well as our electronic Corrective Action Tracking (eCAT) feature!

Ad Hoc Inspections are completely free-form and can be a great option for those who aren't necessarily interested in data roll-up for analytics.

Please contact us if you'd like to learn more about how to use Ad Hoc Inspections.
 

Bundled Products

In July this year, Safety Reports started offering a new program where we "bundled" our apps to subscribers at their renewal. 

It works like this...if you have 1 Inspection App license, at your renewal, you get to choose one of our other apps FREE.  If you have 2 inspection licenses, you get 2 free apps (limit up to 5).

So, if you like our Inspection App and want to give a different app a try, you have nothing to lose. Apps include: Toolbox Talks, Incidents, Observations, JSA, Scan, our new Forms App. No mixing apps.

Contact us for more details!
PrecipAlert

If you're looking for a simple and affordable tool to track rainfall at your worksites, look no further!

With PrecipAlert, you can pinpoint your job sites and configure alerts for rain events (pre and post rain events) for a specific location. Alerts are sent via SMS text or email.

Use the alerts and our dashboard page to keep your projects running smoothly as you will be alerted when rain events are forecasted that could impact your operations.
