How does the Person Involved section work in the Incident tab of the Permit to Work (PTW), in OHS Online?

1. Client employee - this selection is made when the person injured is a client employee. 
2. Contractor employee - this selection is made when the person injured is a contractor employee. 
3. Other - this selection is made when the person injured is a visitor to the client. In this case, it is the responsibility of the client to keep the visitor safe during their time on-site. In the event a visitor is hurt the client is responsible.

When the Client Employee option is checked, the details entered into the Incident tab will be updated to the client's OHS Online profile and will be reflected as a new incident in the Incident section of the client's profile:

When the Other option is selected, an additional data row is added, in addition to the client employee field, which allows the details of the visitor to be entered:
