What are issue categories?

Issue categories are used to organize and sort issues reported by your team, allowing you to differentiate hazard-related issues from near-miss ones. Depending on the types of issue categories in your organization, you may want to relabel issue category names to ones more relevant to your organization's context.

Users must have SafetyCulture version 23.32 or later to view more than 10 issue categories.
