Set Up Access

This article describes the user setup for the Dynaway Safe Work app. The Safe Work app includes the following modules:

  • Tagout
  • Lockout
  • Work Permits
  • Risk Assessment
  • Checklists

A user license purchased for Dynaway Safe Work gives the user access to all five modules. You can choose to use one or more modules in the Safe Work app, depending on the requirements in your maintenance department.

Before users can start working in Safe Work, you must first set up user access. This is done in the Safe Work Users list.

Refer to the test case below for a step-by-step procedure regarding setting up Safe Work Users.

Note: Technicians who are going to work with Checklists on Work Orders must also be set up as Maintenance Employees in EAM-BC.

Refer to the article Maintenance Employees / Users to learn how to set up a user as a Maintenance Employee in the standard EAM-BC app, which is required for the general work tasks relating to Assets and Work Orders.
