When it comes to managing your important documents in Worknice, there are two options for you; add your own existing documents, or alternatively choose from one of our many curated templates available in the document library.

The Worknice Health & Safety Policies template is an example of a document you can get from our library, and is available to all Worknice clients.

Step 2 – Tailor the manual to your specific business

Fill in the gaps that relate to your unique business, such as years of operation. It looks and feels like Microsoft word.

Step 3 – Send out the policy for review – with some smart tech to boot

Ensure compliance by sending out the health and safety manual to employees and contractors – you way you want. Simply select who you want to send the document too – the whole company, a department, a location, or individuals – and hit send. That will trigger a task in that users Worknice task box, as well as an email direct to them. You can even create an announcement on the Worknice Dashboard.

Step 4 – Employee & contractor sign off on Policies

Finally, don’t spend time chasing up employees for their compliance every time you add a new document form or policy in Worknice. Worknice Software will automatically request employees and contractors to log their acceptance either by digital sign or an ‘acknowledge’ button.  Worknice will generate a report displaying which of the users have accepted the policy. Easy!
