Our Lead Designer, Sebastian, has been hard at work this year designing a new dashboard for your employees. You'll notice new features being rolled out slowly over the next few months. Visual design is not the only thing being changed, we're also making tweaks to functionality to ensure user experiences and ease of use is a top priority.

Here's what Sebastian had to say about the new changes:

With the new dashboard we wanted to create a focus on the features that are most important to the worker and the company. We've prominently displayed new Safety Bulletins/Alerts in the centre of the page so that the latest bulletins are not only seen but ingrained in the workers mind as they come back to the dashboard again and again. Based on user feedback we've also placed overall compliance and a worker's company rank as a key feature with more visibility. We're often told that these two components help motivate workers to make their safety requirements a priority. For clients that utilize our Safety Rewards component we've also added a new widget that will display new items in our catalog. The new dashboard will have customization available to the administrator so they can choose various widgets to display.

Here's a sneak peek of upcoming changes:

We want to thank all the clients that have given feedback on the new design and helped us out with tweaks. If you have any requests or suggestions please don't hesitate to contact us.

In case you're worried about the new Canada Anti Spam Legislation (CASL) affecting compliance emails, bulletins, etc. from SafetySync, you'll be happy to know that communication via SafetySync is exempt. We provide inter-organizational communications between your safety department and your workers. There is a specific exemption that applies to our business which is, "persons sending CEMs to other persons within their organization, where the CEMs concern the activities of the organization."

Based on regulations added to Ontario's Occupational Health and Safety Act in November, employers are required to ensure workers and supervisors complete a basic occupational health and safety awareness program no later than July 1st, 2014. These regulations apply to all industries operating in Ontario. We're committed to making sure our training stays relevant and new regulations are examined and we provide you with the course you need to be compliant.

There are two types of training that must be satisfied: the workers and the supervisors. The following courses found in SafetySync are recommended to satisfy the requirements.

Worker Training:

  • Occupational Health and Safety
  • Common Worksite Injuries
  • Hazard Management
  • Workers Compensation Board

Supervisor Training:

  • The same training as workers plus;
  • Safety Supervision

You are required to store a record of training for 6 months as well, and of course you can store your records indefinitely in SafetySync. It's great to know that when new regulations like this come along it doesn't cost you anything extra to be compliant. All the tools are at your disposal in SafetySync.
