A common example might be how the sign in on site links to induction and the different custom workflows you might have in place for this.
- contractor or subcontractor arrives on site, signs in, is checked for induction status
- present a prescreening form for health history or vaccine status
- cross check certificates, licenses, insurances, permits
- trigger permit to work workflows if the nature of work is high risk to check for JSA's, SWMS's and other documentation
