We've recently added links to new lessons on WorkSafe Manitoba's YouTube channel:

Some of them are very well done and insightful.  They give you one more content choice in some of the more popular safety training topics, including:

  • Worker Rights & Responsibilities (in the Occupational Health & Safety course)
  • Workplace Safety & Health Committees (also in the OH&S course)
  • Workplace Inspections (in the Hazard Management course)
  • Back Injuries (in the Common Worksite Injuries course)
  • Slips, Trips and Falls (in the Fall Prevention course)

You can preview these new lesson versions in your Administrator portal, and swich over to these options (by clicking the appropriate radio button) if you feel they best convey the intended safety message.

June Changelog

Incident Tracking

  • Added damage cost field for assets
  • Classifying an incident as a vehicle collision has now been moved from the asset level to the incident level. This will allow us to filter incidents that were collisions when our Incident Statistics feature goes into public beta.
  • Violation is now available as an involvement status. (Secondary classifications will be available soon that will populate addtional statuses)

New Features

Admins

  • Records across the Admin Portal now show an autogenerated ID number. Previously it was difficult to tell records apart that were the same type and arrived on the same day. Now when assigning records to incidents it's a lot easier to keep track of which records are which.
  • Added new style buttons in a few places in the admin side.
  • You can now track visible minority workers using the HR / Notes tab. (Report functionality and exporting coming soon)
  • You can now track Aboriginal workers using the HR / Notes tab. (Report functionality and exporting coming soon)

  • You can now drag and drop multiple files when creating a bulletin.
  • Added a new excel and PDF report for Coming Due / Past Due certificates under Training>>Certificates.
  • Administrators can now approve or reject expired tickets.

May Changelog

New Features

Admins

  • Across the admin portal we have changed the term "Employee List" to "Worker List". This allows us to better separate an employed worker vs a contract worker. Before there was confusion upon navigating to your employee list and seeing employees and contractors mixed together. Now there is a clear distinction and sorting your worker list by type makes a lot more sense.
  • Admins will want to make sure locations added in SafetySync have their address information populated since we will now plot the location on a map for workers in My Portal.
  • Admins can now add related materials to Procedures like you can already do with Policies. Related materials will show up in the newly designed Procedure View page in My Portal.
  • Fixed some formatting issues for adding Safety Points in Rewards>>Employee Points.
  • You can now assign a global reason when adding Safety points in Rewards>>Employee Points. This prevents you from having to enter a reason multiple times when awarding points.
  • Rewards>>Employee Points now totals the current amount of points for each worker in your search results.
  • When saving a lesson in Custom Courses a popup will now ask you if you would like to reset compliance for all workers who are currently compliant with the lesson. This is useful if you've made a major change to a course you've created and you want all workers to re-take the latest version.
  • You can now create a bulletin from the Admin portal. You'll be taken to the My Portal for now, but we will add an admin interface in the future.
  • We've increased the character limit for SDS titles from 50 to 100 characters.
  • When viewing the competency tab on the Employee Details page the system will now let you know if the user has been pre-qualified and properly show the information entered for the pre-qualification in the popup.
  • We've increased the character limit for email addresses from 50 to 55 characters on the Employee Details page.
  • We've removed the page limit for uploading PDF procedures and policies. Previously there was a 100 page limit. You are now only restricted by the 1 MB size for Basic customers and 10 MB size for Premium customers.
  • If you've ever visited the Company>>Sub Contractors tab, you were probably confused as to why it was empty and how you can utilize it. We've added a bit of text here to clarify its usage.
  • On the certificates tab in the Employee Details page, we've added the correct certificate names inside the .zip file you download when clicking "Download Certificates" Previously they just showed numbers.

Workers

  • Added a new design for completing a survey.
  • SafetySync will now plot the location address on a map under Company>>Locations>>Location Details.

  • My Certificates now separates Required and Optional certificates.
  • Added a few tooltip clarifications in Forms & Records.
  • Upon logging in you might be greeted with a newly designed "Verify Contact Information" landing page. If you're administrator has not enabled this feature you will not see this.

Bug Fixes

Admins

  • Fixed a bug that was logging you out if you pressed enter on your keyboard while adding a Form Header.
  • Fixed a truncate error when saving data that was too many characters on a few of the fields in Incident Tracking Details.
  • The HR/Notes tab was available when adding a new worker, this was an oversight and has been removed.
  • When exporting the inactive worker list to pdf or excel it was incorrectly including terminated workers. This has been resolved.
  • Fixed a bug that was making the menu unclickable after moving a worker inactive.

Workers

  • Form headers with no forms assigned are now hidden as intended.
  • Removed strange postback behaviour when clicking the help icon under Training>>My Certificates.
  • Fixed a few sort arrows in various places that were overlapping with column headers.
  • For a few items in the rewards catalog, the custom logo was scaling incorrectly. This has been resolved.
  • The download certificate button was being hidden after an administrator approved a certificate. This was an oversight and has been fixed.
