Products and Services - Online Tools
vPSI Group, LLC has the following web-based tools available for your use.  Feel free to visit the vPSI Online Tools Portal for access to either of these tools, or contact us for more information.


vPSI Online Pre-Task Planning Tool & Library SystemSM:

Whether you use JSA, JHA, Tool Box Talk, Risk Assessment, Safety Huddle or some other Pre-Task Planning (PTP) process, the ultimate objective is the same: to make the task go according to plan, the way you want it to, with no nasty surprises. vPSI Group came up with the idea of an online tool that not only stores documents on a web server but also provides a methodology to lead PTP / JSA writers into creating direct action JSAs.  Design and development work is complete and the vPSI Online Pre-Task Planning Tool & Library SystemSM , called the vPSI Online PTP Tool for short, is now fully operational.

There are two main pathways for use of this tool. 

  • The Open Library: The system design includes free user accounts with full functionality, operating in an open environment public Pre-Task Planning Document Library.  Click here to try it out. 

  • A Corporate Subscriber Library:  This is generally for companies that have already implemented (or are in the process of implementing) the vPSI System™ and want a central web-based repository for their Job Safety Analysis / Pre-Task Planning (JSA / PTP) documents as well as a methodology for leading their company's JSA / PTP writers into direct action JSAs rather than the more typical passive JSAs that simply provide good advice. These corporate accounts include additional administrative and access management features, along with opportunities to customize the user interface and final output.  Contact us for information on signing up for a Corporate Subscriber Library in the PTP Tool.

Whichever pathway a user takes to access this tool, they will find the following features:

  • A wizard that guides them to create a vPSI style JSA (meaning a checklist of assignments rather than a list of good advice) based on Hazard Groups.

  • An existing repository of hundreds of JSAs on a multitude of topics, all of which can be used as templates or as the basis for another JSA.

  • Ability to modify and customize an existing document to fit the current task situation.

  • Easy access to regularly used PTP documents from a personal customized "My Documents" page.

  • Ability to create JSAs in any Latin or Germanic based language (all other languages would need to be typed in another program and pasted into the tool).

  • Email or print any of the JSAs in the database.

  • Lock owned JSAs from editing by others.

  • Store and share JSA documents.

vPSI Online Corrective Action Assessment Tool and DatabaseSM:

On June 1st, 2009 vPSI Group launched public access to the vPSI Online Corrective Action Assessment Tool and DatabaseSM, called the vPSI Online Rating Tool for short.  This online tool operates in a secure web environment.  This tool allows users to:

  • Input, track, and monitor event reports from all types of unplanned events such as accident, incident, near miss, audits, or quality events.

  • Interactively rate all corrective actions resulting from any unplanned event report using vPSI methods.

  • Store the reports in a database on a secure web server shared only with users in your organization.

  • Upload existing data from your existing databases and spreadsheets.

  • Generate event and corrective action reports organized by organizational entities, locations, etc.

  • Calculate a vPSI Number – the only true leading performance indicator.

Individuals, small businesses, or large corporations can reap the benefits of vPSI's automated approach to verifying the effectiveness of corrective action responses to unplanned events.   Using the vPSI Online Rating Tool will enable you to:

  • Prioritize corrective actions within event reports based on effectiveness.

  • Separate corrective actions that will work from those either destined to fail or not relevant to preventing a recurrence of the unplanned event.

  • Verify the effectiveness of the organization’s response to any unplanned event/problem.

The system design includes free user accounts with full functionality, allowing users to input, edit, and review incidents, rate corrective actions, and calculate a vPSI Number

vPSI Group also offers corporate accounts in the vPSI Online Rating Tool.  Corporate Subscriber Libraries include administrative and access management features.  These libraries are generally for companies that have already implemented (or are in the process of implementing) the vPSI System™ and want a web-based repository for incident investigations, corrective actions, and corrective action ratings.  Corporate libraries allow for profile-driven confidentiality of data, separation of data into units / departments, and reporting based on the company's selected divisions.
