Forms, forms, forms.
All safety, quality and environmental management teams use forms on the daily. They are the front line when it comes to collecting data across all facets of compliance, such as inspections, audits, incidents, hazards, obligations, injuries, claims, etc.
So yeah, they are an important part of a management system. No forms, no data. But just because you have a form doesn’t mean you will get the data you need.
Let’s unpack this statement a little. Imagine for a minute you are a kitchen hand in a busy restaurant. You notice a hazard. How much time would you be willing to devote to logging that hazard? If you are anything like the majority, the answer is not very long at all.
So this is where Smart Forms are a crucial part of your management system. They break down the productivity barriers that traditionally plague paper-based forms to make filling in data fast and easy for busy workers – often no more than 30 seconds.
Donesafe’s Smart Form builder now has over 30 response types that can be dropped into a form. If there is information you need to be captured in a form without sacrificing user experience, Donesafe can be sure to accommodate that.

HIDDEN FIELD – May be used for any values you don’t want your users to see or edit – commonly to reduce form length without sacrificing important data.
