Find, Edit or Complete a Full Story Review Task

Review Tasks, *aka* Story needs to be reviewed, is a PeopleSafe generated task, created when a person has told a story using Tell Full Story from a web browser. These tasks are given to users with PeopleSafe Coordinator and Manage Users security clearance. Anyone who is given the task can complete the review however you will have your own internal process on who does Story Reviews.

If you've been sent an email about a Story Review Task, or simply want to see all your Story Review Tasks, you can find your tasks, edit or complete them in PeopleSafe using your web browser. 

Story Reviews are a really important part of the Tell Your Story® process and should be completed as part of the risk management process in your Organisation.

Complete a Story Review Task

Completing a Story Review Task requires you to complete the review process for that Story. The Task will be completed automatically when you arrive at the end screen of the review process.

  1. Go to the Story Review Task you want to complete. 
  2. Click Review
  3. Read through the Full Story Review process and look at any attachments that may  have been added to the original story. You'll see these must be downloaded and saved if you want to refer to them during the review process.
  4. Click Start, in the bottom right.
  5. Add and update the questions throughout the Story Review process. The details should reflect what you know now.
  6. Identify any specific risks that were involved as part of the story. 
  7. Once completed (the Story Review process), the Task will be automatically completed. 
  8. You have the option to add Notes and Attach files or add Tasks at the Review Complete screen.

Note: The original story record is unchanged by a review. A review creates a new record that includes any extra details.  You'll be able to see any attachments that were added to the original story at the completion of the review.   If you have successfully completed the Review, the Story list should show a number assigned to it (rather than "New") and the Review link will disappear, and the now-reviewed Story will also contain a link back to the original.

The Review Task should also be automatically marked Completed when the Review is done. To complete the task that relates to the Story Review, it  must be reviewed by someone listed in the task under  ' Give to these People'. 


If you're attaching a file with Video footage it must be no larger than 64MB  

More about Story Reviews

  • A Review of the Full Story is a step-by-step process that you will follow to check details and make sure that everything is being done to keep people safe at work.
  • Story Review Tasks are created and notifications are sent every time someone in your Organisation uses the Tell Full Story feature that is part of the Tell Your Story® Process
  • PeopleSafe has a fixed review process that you will need to follow while doing the review. 
  • Completing Story Review Tasks is an important part of the risk management process in any Organisation.
  • If you have several reviews to do, ONLY complete them one Review at a time. Don't attempt to do multiple reviews by having several tabs open at once. This can cause data to get 'scrambled' in your Web browser.
  • When you receive a Story Review Task you'll need to follow any internal processes for completing a Story Review Task set by your Organisation.
  • When multiple people get the same Story Review Task you'll need to decide who is responsible for completing it following your Organisations' process.
  • You can manually add tasks for your team at the end of the review process.
  • If you forget to add a task to a story you can go back and add it later. Go to the Story record, select Options > Add Task.
  • You can't add a new person to a story during the review. If you want to add another injury to the story you need to add another Injury Story for the person who is injured.

  • If a new risk appears 'serious' further tasks and notifications will be created.
