We have added two new distances to accommodate larger job sites footprints: 1500 and 6000 feet. These options are intended to reduce the number of false out of range Location Not Verified errors when a visitor checks into a site.

Check Out with Injury Confirmation
Our customers have told us that they rely on Safe Site Check and all its historic data to mitigate risks with incidents that are claimed to have occurred in the past. We have introduced the Check Out with Injury feature as part of the Advanced Edition. When enabled, this feature requires a visitor to declare whether they were injured on the job when they check out. If they claim they are injured, they can provide a description of the nature of the injury, and als upload photos. The check in record retains a visitors yes/no response to the injury question, and is visible to your team through the app. You can also define a Unjury Check Out alert.This sends alerts to team members when someone checks out and reports an injury. Check out the following video to see how it works: https://youtu.be/
Version 8.0 (April 22, 2022)
Over time we have introduced new capabilities based on customer feedback. We now have two different editions for purchase: Basic and Advanced. Our existing customers, as of April 30 2022, will automatically have their licenses set to the Advanced edition. The advanced edition includes the following features that will not be available in the Standard edition: Broadcast Alerts, Procore Integration, Other App Integrations, Geo Fencing, Kiosk Mode and Check In Response Audit as described below.
Major New Feature! Check In Response Audit
Our customers have asked for the ability to save and view each check in visitor’s responses. The primary reason cited is the need to know precisely what questions a visitor was asked, their responses, and a view of PDF document content, and web links, that a visitor may have acknowledged and agreed to as part of their check in.
Visibility to this data is important to mitigate any legal risk for issues that may arise from past incidents.
Starting with this release, the responses are being recorded. With the Advanced edition, Admins and Supervisors will be able to see the data through the app and download responses to a PDF file. Check out the following video to see how it works: https://youtu.be/
A new browser app has been created to let workers create their personal profile. The Profile contains a person’s photo, full contact Information that goes beyond what you may normally ask as part of a check in (like Emergency contacts), and certifications (OSHA training, operator licenses, safety training, and more!). When a visitor checks in, they can link their profile.
Our customers have indicated that visibility to this data helps mitigate risk by seeing if visitors have the required certification to enter or perform certain tasks on a job site. Our customers have also indicated that capturing this information through our app eliminates the need for your company admins to track down and centrally store your employees certifications. Your Admins and Supervisors will be able to see the Profile information for anyone that has checked into a site.
Setting up a profile is easy to do and only takes a few minutes for a one time setup. The user can also quickly update their profile over time. If you want visibility to the extended data from a visitor’s profile, then you must ask them to use the app with their web browser at app.safesitecheckin.com. Check out the following video to see how it works: https://youtu.be/-
Branded QR Codes
We have improved QR Codes to include an embedded Site Site Check In logo. This has been done to mitigate a scenario where someone tries to hijack a check-in by placing a fake QR Code onto a check-in poster. The new QR Code will visually let you know that your code is valid. The new QR Code format applies to any newly created site. You can also re-issue a QR Code for an existing site by downloading a QR Code poster.
Admin App Improvements
Some of our customers have asked for ways to filter out inactive sites and users from pages in the Admin App. This release now shows only Active Sites from the Sites list page, and Active Users from the Users page. The top of these pages now has a filter control that lets you filter the page content, for example, the Users page. We have also added more descriptive information to the Customize pages to make it easier to see which Check In flow is currently being edited.
Version 7.4 (March 17, 2022)
The check in app now has a Kiosk mode feature. This is designed to let you use a tablet at check in location to let visitors who do not have a smart phone check in. Check out the following video to see how it works: https://youtu.be/
Version 7.3 (March 11, 2022)
Improved Broadcast Alerts
We made improvements to matching company names in Procore projects when populating Manpower logs.
Version 7.1 (Jan 25, 2022)
Improved Broadcast Alerts
Based on popular feedback, we have made two improvements.
- First, you can now send Broadcast messages to visitors who have checked-in on the current day, in the last 7 days, or the last 30 days.
- Second, you can now send Broadcast messages to visitors who selected a specific check-in flow.

Version 7.0 (Dec. 25, 2021)
Procore Integration Option

- Procore Integration Guide (PDF Download): https://checkin.id/319qLLW

Visual Indicator on Modified Check Ins
The app lets your team modify check in records and keeps an audit log of changes. The Site Activity Visitors page now has an icon to let your team know which check in records have been modified.
Customize User Experience Improvements
We continue to make the setup to customize your check in easier and have added new icons that show the list entry flows associated with each field.
Version 6.8 (Nov. 11, 2021)
A new Remember Me option has been added to check in terms. The option lets you control whether a previously checked off term is remembered (remains checked) for subsequent check-ins.
Scheduler Run Now
The scheduler has been improved to let you run a schedule item on Demand. To Run Now, select a given schedule’s menu (the one with the 3 dots), and see the new option.
Prior Day Granted Badge Color
Visitors can bring up their check in badges by selecting a check in record on their device from https://app.safesitecheckin.com/. Prior day granted badges are now shown with a white background. This is designed to reduce cases where visitors attempt to show a prior day’s badge to on site personnel.
