Hazard Reporting

The Hazard Reporting Collector solution allows field personnel to record the location of hazards with their smartphone or tablet in the field. This solution also allows the user to attach a photo with additional details about the hazard. By creating a map of hazards from the field, managers and dispatch can see potential hazards that can impact field crews and work locations.

The Hazard Reporting Collector is a configuration of ArcGIS. Once configured, the Hazard Reporting Collector can be access by field crews using the Collector for ArcGIS app. This allows personnel to collect hazard information regardless of connectivity to the office network, assuming cellular coverage is available.
