    IndustrySafe Release Notes - Fall 2018 - 5.15

    We make a tremendous effort of incorporating your ideas and suggestions into IndustrySafe. To address your needs and concerns, we constantly make updates to the software. Please provide us with feedback on this release or provide suggestions for new releases here: If you have any questions or concerns regarding the update, please contact us at


    5.15 Webinars

    We will be offering free live webinars covering the new features in the 5.15 update.


    Section and Location Enhancements

    With the 5.15 Release, you can now link employees to Section and Location values using the Employee Personal Information form. The Section and Location fields will then auto-populate for an employee marked as the Involved Employee of an incident, the Investigator/Auditor of an inspection, the Reporter of a hazard, the Observer of an observation, the Person Being Monitored in Industrial Hygiene sampling, or the Supervisor of a JSA.

    Section and Location fields have also been added to the Employee Information Log, Required Training Log, and the Training and Training Activity logs, as part of this update.


    New Log Report Fields

    The Observations; Inspections; Inspection Details; Hazards; and the Initial, Environmental, Vehicle, Security, and Employee Injury Incident Logs have been updated to include all of the default form fields that are available within their respective recording forms. For example, the Employee Injury Log will now allow users to report on fields such as Description of Location, Cost of Property Damage, and if the incident has been labeled OSHA reportable.

    A complete list of all new fields that have been added to log reports can be found in this resource.

    For additional information about IndustrySafe's log reports, please review our quick guide.

    If you are looking for a more detailed guide covering the advanced features that are available only to Administrators, it can be found here:

    Enable Initial Incidents for IndustrySafe’s Mobile App

    In mid-summer 2018, IndustrySafe updated our mobile app to allow for initial incident recording. Previously, system administrators had to contact IndustrySafe's Support Team in order to have the Incidents module enabled on their site’s Mobile App. With the 5.15 Release, system administrators now have the option to toggle Incidents and Inspections on or off for the Mobile App as needed.

    To allow your organization's users to record initial incident data on the go, go to System Functions > Setup > Edit Modules, adjust the Incidents module's Mobile Status dropdown from "Archived" to "Available," and click the "Save" button.
