Inspections performed with paper & pen are highly prone to errors from things such as poor handwriting or incomplete fields. The result? An increased risk of health and safety incidents, and in turn, monetary loss. Performing inspections on a mobile device such as a tablet or smartphone allow inspectors to collect accurate and detailed inspections which significantly increases safety by reducing risks due to data errors.
Mobile safety inspection software increases safety by:
- Ensuring Compliance – with mobile safety inspection software, standards are pre-defined and as questions are answered they are measured directly against them. The inspector can easily identify non-compliance issues on the spot.
- Applying Condition Ratings – mobile safety inspection software can measure the weighting, thresholds, and the criticality of each item inspected, allowing for a corrective action to be created immediately if an inspection step fails.
- Reducing the inspection life-cycle – mobile safety inspection software will shorten the time it takes to complete inspections and generate reports, which means management can respond to hazards for corrective actions in a timely manner.
- Enable Quicker Inspection Turnaround – mobile safety inspection software will gather information quickly and accurately. With a quicker more accurate inspection process, serious defects can be addressed and re-inspected in an overall shorter timeframe to ensure safety with minimal downtime. Furthermore, checklists are electronic and therefore can be updated quickly and reissued out to all field workers. So, if a special inspection needs to be conducted, or additional inspection points need to be added the updated checklist, inspection can be added to the users or groups to do list on the smart phone or tablet.
- Ensure Accuracy – Paper inspection forms are often compiled over time and so become disjointed and without a logical sequence to how an inspection should progress. Mobile safety inspection software allows inspectors to follow a sequence and ensures all mandatory questions are answered. Incomplete questions are highlighted and the inspection cannot be submitted until all mandatory questions are completely answered. Smart Phones and Tablets support the recording of audio clips, photographs, GPS coordinates, barcode capture, signature capture and some support RFID, thus ensuring a higher level of detail and accuracy that pen and paper inspections cannot accomplish.
Conducting inspections using mobile inspection software has many benefits over paper based inspections, particularly when it comes to health and safety. Whether you are conducting inspections on manufacturing equipment, facilities, sites, communication towers or off shore oil rigs, reducing the risk of health and safety incidents are not only beneficial to worker’s health, but also to your bottom line.
