No – to reduce confusion and support safety teams in controlling their messaging and reporting structures, ObservNow is a free opt-in feature for all SciShield customers.
ObservNow is available to all customers with the SciShield Platform in place, provided free-of-charge as part of the COVID-19 response from SciShield.
Some types of reports (such as reporting a supervisor for not enforcing proper safety protocols like mask use) may carry some level of risk of retaliation. We created ObservNow to optimize the chances that someone will report a safety concern, rather than deciding it's "not worth it."
Any individual present in your organization's directory will already have an account made and ready to use in SciShield, and will be able to use ObservNow – it is not limited to research personnel.
ObservNow submissions will go to a common queue available to all members of Health & Safety. As different groups have different structures for working on- and off-site, we are ensuring there is flexibility to support multiple working and coordination structures.
It is also possible to set up ObservNow to send emails when an observation is submitted, or to only send observations to the common queue. Please reach out to email@example.com to have this option configured.
We'd love to help you get ObservNow, as well as many other SciShield features, up and running for your organization.
There's never been a better time to get SciShield. Reach out to our team of experts, and we'll work with you to understand your needs and find a way to help you get our best-in-class software.
