Electronic Safety Inspection Solution

Diligent inspections and routine maintenance are global necessities and the fundamentals of safety in the workplace. In 2014, OSHA cited fall protection as the most frequently violated safety standard and the leading cause of worker fatality, responsible for over 36% of deaths in construction in the USA. Implementation of a digital or electronic inspection work-flow can contribute to the overall safety compliance of an organization and, by extension, the mitigation of workplace injury.

How Can Inspection Management Software Assist With Your Daily Activities ?

We recently encountered a number of prospect customers who wanted to know how they can justify spending corporate money and time on a system that automates their inspections. Our response indicated that the first aspect to take into consideration when justifying spending money is ‘intangible’ benefits that assist with daily activities. The second aspect addresses management and budget considerations using a simple ‘rule of thumb’ to conservatively estimate and measure tangible benefits.
We will use the term ‘Inspections’ in the widest possible definition that encompasses a variety of activities performed against a piece of equipment, asset, area or property. This includes data collection, periodic inspections, daily visual inspections, weekly/monthly inspections, semi-annual/annual audits, pre-start checks, job safety analysis and tracking of deficiencies and corrective actions. Therefore, the same software solution can address a myriad of issues and business processes within your organization, including safety audits of fall protection equipment, lifting and rigging, cranes, OHS, fire protection, HVAC, property audits and pre-purchase inspections, etc.

Ladder Inspection Application used in the Workplace

Ladders have become very important in our working environment. As per Australian Standard for portable and fixed ladders (AS-1892), ladder inspections should be conducted periodically to ensure that the ladder is safe to work on. A ladder inspection can and will prevent injury to you and the people around you and comply with OH&S legislation. All ladders should be inspected at regular intervals when not in use and preferably a visual safety inspection before each episode of use.
