Tech RO: Technician Checklist

Tech RO: Technician Checklist

This article provides an overview of the Tech RO Technician Checklist feature. This feature can be used to ensure that service technicians complete a checklist (i.e. a personal protective equipment safety checklist) prior to the start of their day.

This feature is not enabled by default. If you want to turn on this functionality in your EMDECS system, please contact our customer experience team for assistance. We can set a system parameter ( TECH_SELF_ASSESSMENT) to enable this feature.

This includes the start of a new work day, when returning from a lunch or break, or whenever a technician switches between jobs. To view the checklist, sign in to the Tech RO portal as usual and scan an employee badge:

After signing in, a pop-up window will appear with a safety checklist. Technicians can review the checklist and must click Accept to continue.
