SMS Pro includes a boiler-plate Non-Punitive Reporting Policy.  Clients are encouraged to adapt it to their needs.  In addition, all users are encouraged to participate in an SMS Induction Agreement. The third item they agree to is "I understand the aim of our safety management system is to improve safety – not to attribute blame."

SMS Pro sends emails to users when they report flight-related hazards, regardless whether flight-related issues are reported anonymously.  Whenever issues are updated, such as when comments are added, users are notified their issue has been updated. Users receive links in their emails, thus making it easy for them to drive directly to issues in question.
4) Does aviation safety management system include process for investigations to be carried out for flight-related hazard reports, accidents and incidents?
