The important notice add-on allows you to share critical notice. They can be used to acknowledge hazards before work commences or to notify of events during the day. We have two types of notices:

  • Instant messages allow you to send one-off notifications. These notifications have various uses, from informing those on-site of an emergency to reminding employees about company policies. They can be sent to employees, contractors, and visitors.

You can also report on acknowledgment notices to see who responded, when they responded, what they responded with, and any additional information.
