Some organizations have many ongoing projects at once, creating a need for several safety managers and personnel to keep everything on track. Safesite provides different personnel roles and permissions to fit your needs. This article explains the hierarchy of the Safesite platform and its different personnel roles.
It's important to note that the Safesite web portal (log in to Safesite) is restricted for Admin users only. They use it to manage safety actions, review reports, add/remove personnel and more. Non-admins can only access Safesite directly from their mobile device via the our mobile apps or if using a tablet or PC using this Safesite page.
What is an organization?
An organization consists of all groups, projects, teams and personnel members. Typically, your organizations name within Safesite is the name of the company you work for.
What is a group?
Groups consist of multiple projects and are typically used for reporting purposes. Groups might be organized by projects that are located in the same area, division, or for example by projects of similar types. As you can see in the diagram below, groups are optional. A project can exist without a group.
What is a project?
Each project lives within an organization and is the central place where personnel complete their safety actions. Some common use cases we see on the Safesite platform is creating a project for each job site, location, or workspace.
What is a team?
Teams are a subset of personnel on a project. Only project or org admins can create teams. An admin can also copy a team from an existing project. Each team has its own team name that an admin can set.
All personnel types can be added to a team, however personnel are not required to be on a team. They can only be added to a team after they have been added to the project. A team can be archived at any point by an org or project admin.
The main use case for teams is for Hazard resolution. When a hazard is logged it is required to allocate a responsible team for the Hazard to be resolved by.
What is Personnel?
Personnel are the persons invited to your Safesite organization and/or projects. There are 4 personnel types on the Safesite platform, each with different permissions: org admins, project admins, Org Members, and Guests.
