Admin Dashboard 660 - December Newsletter

As many of you know, Safety Reports offers a great tool for documenting inspections and generating reports in real-time. But if you don't do anything with that data, what did you really accomplish?

Safety Reports offers several analytical reports that go above and beyond inspections to help you improve safety. Reports can be filtered in a variety of ways to help drill down into the data.
If you'd like assistance viewing your Analytical Reports, please contact us.

Click the button below to view our sample reports. Note, several new reports have been recently added.

Select the tab that reads Analytic Reports when visiting this page.

Checklist Updates

Several updates have been made to our checklists this past month. See below:

We added a new category called Temporary Heating Devices to all three of our Construction Checklists.

We added several new questions to Supported Scaffolds to audit guardrail systems.

We added a new question to all six of our Scaffold checklists (i.e. Baker, Suspension, Mast Climber, etc.) to address inspection requirements.

We added new questions to Traffic Control to address the requirements for use of steel plates over excavations in roadways.

1. What do you like most about Safety Reports?
Safety Reports has made the entire auditing process more efficient by spending less time creating a report and following-up on corrective actions. I now spend more time in the warehouse areas instead of sitting in the office doing reports. I am also able to generate reports for our monthly management meetings.

When talking about using Safety Reports Safety Inspection app to collect safety data, the Walsh group said “This changed the game about a year ago for us… For the first time, we could collect data across the company and could look at how safe we were during regular work and rework.” The article also shared how the data collected using the app showed that a worker was 10 times more likely to get hurt during rework.
