You will only be able to download reports from Forms that you have been to. If you believe that you should be added to a Form, reach out to the Owner of the organisation.  


Structure of a PDF download 


By design, PDF versions of reports cannot be edited. The PDF versions of SaferMe reports include report details, comments, and manage tab details such as state changes and tasks.

The data is structured and fixed.  If the information on the pdf is incorrect, an admin can go into the SaferMe web app, edit the original report by selecting the report card, and then download the edited version. 

An organisation's logo is not able to be added to the PDF inside SaferMe, however, the name of the organisation will show up at the top of the report in bold.

Report Data

The information that is automatically captured when a user creates a report is displayed in the second light grey header. This information details the location of the report, date and time the report was created, the state the report was in at the time of the download, the name of the reporter and the assignee. 

Report Details

This is where the details of the report appear. The information provided directly corresponds to what the user entered on their report. The report field appears in bold text with the users answer in regular text underneath.


Under the report details, any incomplete or completed tasks will appear.  Incomplete tasks will show the task name, description, and who the task is currently assigned to. Completed tasks show the task name, description, as well as the date and time of the tasks completion and the name of the person who has completed it.

Comments and State Changes

Under the report details and task information, any comments or state changes left in the Manage tab of the report will appear in this section. The comments and state changes will also feature the date and time and the user who actioned them. 


The footer of the PDF report contains the SaferMe logo, the Report ID, and the data and time the PDF was created.

Hazard Reports 

Hazard reports have additional details on the PDF. 

The final risk assessment will show in the top right corner to show where the hazard stands at the time of the reports' download. 

Below the Report Details and Tasks section, a Risk Assessment History will detail every change in the risk assessment.
