Add Systems 24-7 as a Home Screen Bookmark


The request for a mobile device is one that we hear often. As many of you know, our new Systems 24-7 platform was launched in 2016 to replace our old OHS (Occupational Health and Safety) system. Since launch, we have been in a constant build mode, working on all the features and functions that you need to help you manage your business programs. Until Systems 24-7 is able to sit in a "rest phase" (meaning we have completed platform development), we haven't prioritized developing an app version. But just because we don't have an app, doesn't mean you can't add a short cut to your mobile's home screen. This means you can click the icon and get right to your login page through your phone's internet browser. Here's how you can set this up on your own devices:


Apple Devices

  • Launch Safari on your ‌iPhone‌ or ‌iPad‌.

  • Navigate to the site that you want to create a Home screen shortcut to, such as the login page for Systems 24-7.

  • Tap the Share icon (the square with an arrow pointing out of it) at the bottom of the screen.

  • Scroll down to the list of actions and tap Add to Home Screen. (If you don't see the action, scroll to the bottom and tap Edit Actions, then tap Add next to the Add to Home Screen action. After that, you'll be able to select it from the Share Sheet.)

  • Type a name for your site link. This will be the title that appears beneath its icon on your Home screen.

  • Tap Add in the top-right corner of the screen.

  • Your new "web app" will appear in the next available space on your device's Home screen.

  • Move it as you normally would to position on your home screen.

Android Devices

  • Open your Android browser and go to the page that you want to bookmark, such as the login page of Systems 24-7.

  • Click on your browser menu and select "Add Bookmark" or "Add to Home Screen".

  • Type a name for your site link. This will be the title that appears beneath its icon on your Home screen.

  • Tap Add in the top-right corner of the screen.

  • Your new "web app" will appear in the next available space on your device's Home screen.

  • Move it as you normally would to position on your home screen.
