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.
  • Added a new design for the Location Details page.
  • Added a new design for viewing Procedures.
  • Added the ability to see related materials for Procedures.
  • We've made a few wording tweaks to the Forms & Records page to clarify functionality.
  • If you are using Internet Explorer 5,6, or 7 you will now receive a popup message upon logging in that states we recommend upgrading your browser to ensure you are have an optimal experience while using SafetySync.
  • 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.
  • The competency assessment feature has been redesigned from the ground up.

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.

Security Question : 4 + 4 ?

Bailey Helicopters has been providing helicopter services for nearly 30 years to Northern regions in British Columbia. If you fly with Bailey Helicopters you can now review passenger safety briefings directly in SafetySync. These briefings are found under Training>>Contractor Orientations, you can deploy them to any workers flying with Bailey's and Bailey's Safety Team will be able to track which of your workers have viewed their briefings.

These short safety briefings cover passengers flying  the AS350, Bell 206, and Bell 212 helicopters.

WHMIS 2015 is Live

Just in time for the June 1st launch of WHMIS 2015 we've made our new course available so you can train your workers in anticipation of the switch. There are a few important things to note about the course:

  • If you are a manufacture or importer you can must implement WHMIS 2015 no later than June 1st 2017.
  • If you are a  distributer you have until June 1st 2018 to implement WHMIS 2015.
  • If you are an employer you have until December 1st 2018 to fully implement WHMIS 2015.

During the transition period, you may receive hazardous products that follow either WHMIS 1988 or WHMIS 2015 requirements. To ensure worker protection, employers must educate and train workers about WHMIS 2015 as new labels and SDSs appear in their workplaces. During the transition period, employers may continue to have WHMIS 1988 labels and MSDSs in the workplace – if so, they must also continue to educate workers about WHMIS 1988. Employers must review and comply with the WHMIS requirements of their occupational health and safety jurisdiction.

In SafetySync you'll note that if you have WHMIS 1988 and WHMIS 2015 set as required it will cause issues for workers that start getting reminders that WHMIS 1988 is expiring soon. Because of this, we recommend all companies make WHMIS 1988 optional and WHMIS 2015 required. That way an expired WHMIS 1988 course will not affect their compliance. You may have a few workers who have just completed WHMIS 1988 but they will need to review the updated changes in WHMIS 2015 since you may begin receiving newly labelled products starting June 1st.
