Duplicating Forms

You are here:
Do some of your forms take a long time to fill out?
Are there hazards/corrective actions that are there everyday on a job i.e. overhead power lines?
No worries, to fill out forms faster, you can potentially duplicate a previous form which will create a new draft of the existing form! If you do not see duplicate in the menu, that means your administrator has disabled duplicating for this specific form.
Duplicating an existing form creates a new form that has the previous values already selected. This allows you to read through the questions on the form and  update the answers that have changed. As an example, maybe this time during the forklift inspection the headlight is broken, so you would update that question only!
Any Corrective Actions that were on the previous (both resolved & unresolved) are copied over as well.
  1. If the Corrective Action is resolved, then you can pass the inspection or select N/A for the common hazard, and the corrective action will be deleted.
  2. If the hazard is still present, the hazard and control will be pre-populated for you based off the previous form.
