October has been a busy month for changes at SafetySync. Here's a list of recent features added and bug fixes.
We've listened to your requests and we're happy to announce that Incident Tracking is currently in development. This feature will be included in your monthly subscription and will have no additional cost to use it!
We'll be breaking the development into a few stages and below is the roadmap for how the feature will work.
Stage 1 - Incident Categorization
Allow administrators to create an incident and associate records that have been uploaded into SafetySync as related to the incident.
Stage 2 - Incident Involvement
Allow administrators to associate workers, contractors, etc. with the incident and how they were involved. i.e. Witness, Fatality, Loss Time Case, etc. We will show these links in the various areas of the portal where you'll want to see them: Employee Details, Equipment Details, etc.
Stage 3 - Basic Statistics
How many incidents were near misses? Lost time cases? Modified duty cases? Administrators will be able pull an overview of all incidents that have occurred during the timeframe they choose as well which of the incidents are reportable to governing bodies.
Stage 4 - Advanced Statistics
How many first aid incidents involved hand injuries? How many hours can I record due to lost time cases? What's my TRIF? For each incident you will be able to enter detailed information to pull statistics from. Use this data to improve your safety program.
Customers can expect the functionality to be rolled out in the above stages. We're hoping to get lots of feedback from administrators testing it out so stay tuned for the initial launch announcement.
Internet Explorer 7 turns 8 years old this month and it's time to say Goodbye. We've made a commitment to bring our customers a world class web experience and simply put, developing for IE7 is holding progress back. Considerable time and effort is spent tweaking code to work with IE7 and the rate at which we can develop great new features is directly impacted by this.
What does this mean for IE7 users? If you login after January 1st, 2015 things will probably look the same, but as new designs and features are implemented you will likely have issues getting pages to work properly. Support staff at SafetySync will no longer investigate issues related to IE7 and their first recommendation for fixing any problems will be to update your browser version or switch to a different browser such as Firefox or Chrome.
If you're still using IE7 it is best to see if you can upgrade directly on your computer or by asking your IT department for help. Alternatively there are better browser options to Internet Explorer such as Firefox or Google Chrome. Both of these browsers apply updates automatically and you don't have to worry about your browser becoming out of date.
