Learn about IndustrySafe’s Upcoming 5.7 Update

In April 2016, the IndustrySafe Safety Software Team will release IndustrySafe’s 5.7 update, which will give administrator users the ability to customize IndustrySafe’s Incident forms to an even greater degree using our new Form Editor, which was previously rolled out to the Hazard and Corrective Actions forms in our 5.6 update.

Using the Form Editor, admins can reorder, rename, remove, or create new Fields and Sections on all Incident recording forms. Fields can also be laid out in 2 columns, which can help reduce the length of your Incident forms. In addition, tooltips can be added to any field, which can contain instructions or hyperlinks to help explain fields to your end users.


Public Web Form Enhancements

As part of the 5.7 Release, enhancements have also been made to IndustrySafe’s Incident, Observation, and Hazard Public Web Forms. IndustrySafe’s Public Web Forms can be made accessible to all of your stakeholders via simple web links to allow for easy incident, observation, and hazard reporting. No login, username or password is required to use these forms.

The Public Web Forms are broken into manageable sections and stakeholders cannot move on to the next section of the public form until all required fields in a section are complete. Previously, stakeholders could not return to previous sections to edit their responses. However, the 5.7 update allows stakeholders to easily navigate back to previous sections using a new “Back” button.

In addition, the Incident Public Web Form has been updated so that users are taken to a new landing page after creating an Initial Incident Form. From there, you can choose to edit or print your Initial Incident Form, add attachments, or complete additional incident forms, such as the Incident Investigation form, or the new Environmental Incident Public Web Form.


Schedule Required Training and Inspection Log Reports

The 5.7 Release will also allow IndustrySafe admins to schedule required training and inspection log reports to be run and emailed out on a regular basis. Using the Report Scheduler, IndustrySafe System Administrators can set an exact date and time at which the report will be run and sent out, and can choose to rerun and send out the report on a daily, weekly, or monthly schedule. The report will be emailed as a PDF attachment.
