Safety Observations

Engage workers with proactive observations and coaching

Capture observations on the spot

It’s well understood that a proactive, methodical observation program is key to identifying and eliminating gaps in safe behaviors. Empower workers to capture what goes wrong (or right) by recording the observation where it happens.

With a mobile app that uses native features like voice-to-text and the camera, observations become quick and easy. Cut the time to enter an observation in half, and let your workers get back to doing their work without sacrificing the collection of this valuable data.

Continue working offline

Performing observations is often problematic in areas without connectivity. With a mobile app that allows offline use, valuable data can still be gathered and automatically synced to the system later, once back in range.

Want to confirm your work was submitted? Simply check the history for the status of each observation.

Set up your own cards

Do you have a special project going on or an inspection coming up for which you need to capture special data? No problem. Set up your own cards, with whatever attributes you need and make it available on the desktop, mobile app, or both.

Get actionable results

What’s the point in collecting data if you can’t derive any meaning from it? Slice and dice your results in a variety of formats and displays, and even distribute your report to your team on an automated schedule.

With fully integrated ad hoc analytics backed by an in-memory search engine, the power is in your hands to discover what’s working and where there’s room for improvement. Derive meaningful insights that result in real change — without involving IT.
