Inspections and Safety audits are crucial to business operations as safety hazards represent a multitude of problems to productivity, workflow, workforce and equipment.
As cumbersome and disengaging as the hazards is the process of inspection and regular maintenance, as it requires paperwork that goes through the process of data gathering/compilation, encoding, analysis and reporting. By the time a call to action is made, business operations might have already been compromised by safety issues.
This potential scenario has changed as paperless safety inspections become the standard across industries where regular inspections and maintenance activities are necessary. Digital inspections and mobile technology bridged the time gap between inspections, corrective actions and reporting. Mobile solutions and apps are now available to accommodate different inspection parameters and safety concerns with real time data and visuals, with the use of smartphones or any other mobile devices.
Here is a quick rundown of some of the benefits of paperless/digital safety inspections and mobile technology:
Digital safety inspections keeps inspectors mobile, covering more ground and project sites as it takes less time to fill out digital forms, take necessary visual verification using the mobile device camera or using the speech-to-text capabilities.
Because these digital checklists are available on smartphones and tablets, it is easier to access, share and print just about anywhere and anytime.
Real Time Reporting:
Electronic inspections ‘hit more birds with one stone’ as reporting can happen in almost real time. Assessment and evaluations via mobile applications send out the data to management as it happens, cutting down time on data gathering/compilation, encoding, sorting, analysis and reporting through channels.
It is easier to access previous data/reports for comparative purposes, corrective actions, or trends or further verification. Paperless safety inspections deem it unnecessary to go through ‘slower’ communication channels but rather opens up the route of communication wherein all concerned management have access to the information in a timely manner.
Digital safety inspection solutions are easily customizable to the needs of the organization Totally flexible to different business practices across industries from construction management, mining, transportation, oil and gas, manufacturing, utilities, property management and food/agriculture – just to name a few. It is not about one size fits all but rather all sizes can use one package.
Digital inspections create a proactive environment for safety concerns and compliance to existing standards as it becomes
more engaging to management and all those concerned with the compliance and issues that may rise on certain events. Real time activities need real time solutions; paperless safety inspection solutions provide the technology to achieve this and it available to everyone.
