What Are Paperless Safety Checklists

Paperless safety checklist forms are the same as traditional paper-based safety forms but they’re available electronically online or on a smart device via an app. Paperless safety checklists allow for capturing a wide variety of information that doesn’t exist with paper forms. These tools help eliminate the hassle of lost documents, damaged reports, manually entered data and lack of consistency among teams.

For example, in the workplace, a digital safety checklist is a paper-free tool used by companies to gather information efficiently. It helps streamline data capture and processes and promotes accessible records and data sharing.

This article will explain the benefits of a paperless safety checklist app and the best way to convert your paper checklists into digital paperless forms with the help of DIGI CLIP mobile forms.

Benefits of Paperless Safety Checklists

The benefits of using paper safety checklists include:

  • saves time and money
  • reduces paper waste
  • data storage
  • tracking safety issues
  • analytics.

Save Time and Money

Smart devices capture information faster than handwriting. The smart device app and cloud-based software will speed up the process of gathering and retrieval of information and generating business reports. In some cases, it can be up to %65 faster and ultimately reduce costs associated with safety data.

Reduces Paper Waste

Paperless safety checklists help businesses control paper use and waste and reduce the use of chemicals associated with printing, which contributes to a greener environment.

Data Storage

Certain records associated with safety are required to be kept for a specified period of time under legislative requirements. Paperless safety forms allow secure cloud-based storage and easy data retrieval.

Tracking Safety Issues

Paperless safety checklists allow for automated emails to be generated alerting stakeholders of faults, defects and other safety issues once it has been submitted. Paperless safety checklists also automatically add faults and defects to an Action Register in the cloud-based software where faults and defects are tracked until rectified and closed out.


Standardised information capture with a paperless safety checklist form creates data that can then be analyzed. This information can be easily shared with the members of an organisation. The responses can be displayed through dashboards and charts that can be downloaded and added to reports so informed decisions can be made.

Paper to Paperless Safety Checklists 

Paperless safety checklists are easily authored in the cloud-based software and automatically sync with the app. Once the safety checklist has synced with the app the checklist now can be completed offline as it is now native within the app. Paperless checklists can also be added from a Form Libary and customised to meet your needs.
