Inspection App Update Available (iOS v11.6 and Android v11.8)

Safety Reports has recently released an update to our Inspection App (iOS v11.6 and Android v11.8) which features multiple improvements from our previous version, including the option to auto-crop your inspection photos to save time and improve efficiency.

For the best experience, we ask that all customers update their Safety Reports Inspection app to the latest version. To check your version, select CONFIG in the menu bar of our mobile app and then select ACCOUNT. Your current version will be shown in the upper right corner of the screen.

If you do not have the most current version uploaded to your device(s), please update as soon as possible.

New! Auto-Crop Photos

With our new Inspection App update, users have the option to crop photos themselves after taking a picture from the app or have the Safety Reports Inspection app auto-crop photos for you to save time and improve your efficiency and productivity.

To enable the auto-crop feature, go to CONFIG in the app menu bar and then select ACCOUNT. From there, check the box directly under the green Login button that reads “Auto Crop Photos”. If this box is checked, the system will automatically crop your photos. If you prefer to crop the photos manually, just uncheck this box.

Safety Docs Will be Accessible in all Apps by all Users

Users of Safety Reports’ Observation, Incident, Scan and Forms apps can now access Safety Docs. We will make Safety Docs available from our Training and JSA apps soon as well. Up until now, this feature has only been available to our Inspection App users.

For those who aren’t familiar with our Safety Docs capability, it’s a document management system that enables employees using a Safety Reports app to access safety-related documents added to the system. No more manual distribution of your documents via email or paper copies. With Safety Docs, your employees will always have access to the most current version of safety policies, procedures, company newsletters, Safety Data Sheets and more!

Historically Safety Docs have only been available to users of the Inspection app, but soon all employees will have immediate access to any documents that are uploaded to the system, regardless of which app they use. Administrators create folders and upload PDF documents which are then available to non-admin users via their app’s “hamburger” menu in the upper left corner. There is no additional cost to use Safety Docs; only an Enterprise-level account is required.
