BasicSafe Overview

BasicSafe is an integrated suite of Environmental Health & Safety (EHS) solutions that can be purchased and deployed individually or collectively. Typically used by organizations across the manufacturing, wood product, construction, government and food production sectors, BasicSafe can be tailored to meet the needs of other industries such as aerospace, warehousing and more. Designed to support compliance conformance with government standards and regulations, BasicSafe centralizes the management of documentation, workplace incidents, planning of corrective actions, implementation of safety training, and running of audits, all within the cloud. Web-based system access means every employee has "right to know" access to JSA, LOTO, SDS information within a paperless workflow.

BasicSafe modules include Job Safety Analysis (JSA) and incident reporting & investigation, with tools for generating OSHA 300, 300A and 301 forms. Automated process safety management (PSM) claims to maintain compliance with OSHA's 14 elements of PSM, avoiding the release of dangerous toxic gases or liquids within chemical processing. A policies & procedures module organizes safety documents and strengthens record keeping, while SDS management similarly centralizes safety data sheets for cataloguing sound chemical usage. Dedicated training management capabilities enable learning schedules, categories and modules to be built with monitoring and alerting there to track employee progress. Action management handles task assignment with action history tracking with an additional planner/scheduler issuing recurring reminders for hitting compliance deadlines. Further modules include a secured, web-based permit manager for safekeeping employee and facility qualification documents, a lockout tagout suite for recording LOTO procedures, plus audit management for supporting internal auditors with tools needed to identify and track workplace risks.

organizational excellence. I know it sounds like a sales pitch but it did work as sold.

Pros

I used basicsafe on a daily basis for six years. The format is easy to use and enabled my company to totally eliminate all hardcopy procedure manuals, sds sheets and forms. Nice huh. Our five location remote facilities staff was able to bring up the most current procedures, regulations and forms. Training was easy for all from office to floor. If they have a smart phone they will be able to use this software. Bonus- AIB , USDA and customers all appreciated the ease of finding documents too. We expanded it into using for audits, work orders and corrective actions. Quality product.

Cons

Needs better ability to bring large photos into it. We were doing visual workplace and large photos were tough.

Response from BasicSoft

Pros

"There were two key factors why Amalgamated Sugar chose BasicSafe, the service and support which has been and continues to be outstanding and their excellent products which are continually improved."

Cons

Currently not able to use the audit tool when internet is not available. Offline capabilities for rural site audits would allow us to complete the entries on site.

Response from BasicSoft

Hey Kim!
Thanks for the review! We do currently offer a version that will work in your system without internet. Our enterprise standalone package will allow for this but requires more support on the user end. I believe that may be the reason for your company choosing the online package.
Please feel free to reach us with any questions!

Time saver!
All safety items in nice and neat bundles.

Pros

It's easy to use; even for folks who haven't used computers much. I like the follow up training for each tool, great way to remind folks of the features in each tool when they might have forgotten.

Cons

During a search in the incident tool, once you've clicked into an incident and you try to go back to the search screen/info on that screen, it disappears. You have to re-enter the search. It would be nice to have it retain the search in order to go back/forth easier.

Pros

Easy to use and easy to train others. The audit tool, action tool, and incident tool are very user friendly.

Cons

Cannot load multiple images to a specific sequence in the lockout tool. I would like the ability to upload multiple action plans at once.

Response from BasicSoft

Hey Jennefer!
Thanks for the great review! Will touch base on the LOTO and action plans!
