How to Conduct an Inspection via the Safesite Mobile App

1. Open the Safesite app on your mobile device, if you have action cards displayed select the Conduct Inspection tile or select the plus (+) icon at the bottom of the screen.

The screen will redirect to the New Safety Action screen. 

2. Select Conduct Inspection.

3. Select the appropriate Project, or create a new one if needed.

Once the project is selected, you will be brought to the Conduct Inspection page.

4. Select a location for the inspection. You can choose a location from the popup list, use the search bar at the top to narrow down the results, or create a new location entirely.

5. Select an Inspection Template. A popup list will display a list of inspection templates. Choose the appropriate template from the list, or use the search bar to narrow down your options. 

6. Complete the template's questions. Once you select a template, the page will be populated with questions. These questions will usually be framed as criteria checks for the inspection subject and can be answered with a multitude of options.

  • Below select the checkmark button for "Yes" or "Satisfactory", the X button for "No" or "Unsatisfactory", or the N/A button if the question is not applicable for the current inspection.

  • Selecting the ✔ or X enables you to Add an Observation, a Hazard, or a comment.

  • See the adding an OBSERVATION article or the adding a HAZARD article.

  • NA will move you on to the next question.

Note: You can have additional actions required for a question see list below.

Here are some alternate options for possible questions:

  • Safe / Unsafe / NA

  • Pass / Fail / NA

  • Yes / No / NA

  • Text answer

Some additional optional actions are based upon negative answer types:

  • Actions optional - Additional actions are optional

  • If Negative - Requires Comment

7. Tap Complete Inspection at the bottom of the screen to complete and add the inspection to the system once all the questions have been completed.

Note: You are not able to edit inspections once they are completed.

If additional details need to be added before the completion of an inspection, save it as a draft instead by clicking the “X” at the top right and select “Yes, Save for later”.
