Inspections Public Web Form
The 5.12 update introduces a new public web form that works in conjunction with IndustrySafe’s Inspections Module.
IndustrySafe’s public web forms allow any stakeholders in an organization to submit data to IndustrySafe, without requiring them to have a username or password.
Stakeholders need only click a link to take them to the Inspections Public Web Form.
Stakeholders utilizing the Inspections Public Web Form will fill out an inspection checklist. They will have the ability to leave comments on each line item, as well as add attachments.
Once the inspection is completed, stakeholders will be taken to a confirmation screen verifying that their inspection was submitted to IndustrySafe. While on the confirmation screen, stakeholders have the option to add any additional attachments, print a hard copy of the recording form, or submit another inspection via the Inspections Public Web Form.
The Inspections Public Web Form is an extra cost item that organizations can purchase as an add-on to IndustrySafe’s Inspections module. Please note that the Inspections Public Web form must be used in conjunction with the Inspections module.
Inspection Status Configuration Enhancements
Previously, edits made to the Inspection Checklist Status field would be applied to all items in all inspection checklists. With the 5.12 update, however, system administrators will now be able to configure unique status values for a single checklist or even for a single checklist item.
System administrators can configure inspection status values from the Edit Inspection Checklist page within System Functions.
Stay tuned for more detailed instructions on how to configure unique statuses for your checklists and line items.
Corrective Actions Enhancements
System administrators are also given additional configuration options for the Corrective Actions recording form with the 5.12 update.
Previously, system administrators were not able to configure status values for Corrective Actions, and were limited to using IndustrySafe’s default statuses of “Open” or “Complete.” The 5.12 update now allows administrators to edit these status options, or add new status values using the Form Editor to better track corrective actions that are in progress or partially complete. System administrators can also use the Form Editor’s advanced logic to prompt users to complete additional fields based on the status selected.
System Administrators can now add the Severity, Probability, and Risk Assessment fields previously only available in the Hazards, Incidents, and Job Safety Analysis modules to the Corrective Action Form. These fields will assist users in determining the priority of a corrective action. These fields can be added to the Corrective Actions Recording Form by system administrators using the Form Editor.
The IndustrySafe team has also added the Severity, Probability and Risk Assessments fields to the Corrective Actions Log to allow for trending and reporting with these fields.
Monthly Statistics Recording Form Update
The Monthly Statistics recording form used to record the number of employees, hours worked and miles driven has been redesigned with the 5.12 update in order to make incident rate reporting and monthly stats data imports quicker and easier for users.
Additional guidance on how to enter monthly stats using the new form layout will be available shortly.
Improved Log Report Loading Speeds
Loading speeds have been significantly improved for IndustrySafe’s log style reports.
In addition, the process for building formulas within log reports has also changed as part of this update. Any existing formulas that you have applied to analysis grids will need to be updated to use a new syntax.
The IndustrySafe Support Team has developed a helpful article that reviews these changes, and provides examples of commonly used formulas that will need to be updated.
You may also contact email@example.com for assistance with creating and updating formulas.
