In SafetyHow, members are enjoined to a wide gamut of activities ranging from social to educational; from personal to professional; from inquisitive to informative; and a whole lot more interesting activities possible in an Internet Community Site. Members could put their personal and professional information in their personal Profile section. They can connect with other safety people in the Safety Community via the Messages part of the Profile section, exchanging information and data. There is the Q&A module in SafetyHow that allows the members to throw questions to the entire community and get responses. They can also put up questions anonymously to safeguard the identity and integrity of all concerned. Interestingly enough, SafetyHow allows the members to write, edit, view, request for articles that cater to their interest and needs as well as to answer a request for an article. Members can do exactly these things in the Articles section. Editing protocol applies such that changes in an edited article could be accepted or further refined by the members. All of these activities clearly illustrate the collaborative nature that SafetyHow lives up to.
Along the way and in between these different modules in SafetyHow are features that will enable the members to discuss about articles, questions, and topics; and to rate articles and answers defining the celebrity status of a member who wrote the best chosen articles and/or answers. This rating, voting and discussion aspects in SafetyHow make the site more interactively appealing for and to the community.

This is possible when a member-user of SafetyHow finds relevant information from the SafetyHow site and then tries to upload this particular file into the EHSS account of its company or organization. Hence, from information coming from the SafetyHow site, the Content Manager of a Company's EHSS account then becomes up to date with regards to the latest information on Safety and Health.
