By using digital inspection app / software on mobile devices, the user as well as the business will benefit from reduced errors and increased efficiency in their safety inspection process.
Frequent digital or electronic safety inspection mobile apps / software assist businesses identify issues, deficiencies, non-compliance and potential risks in early stages and before they occur. As such, businesses that correctly use digital safety inspection apps and software can benefit from less paperwork in the process of data gathering/compilation, encoding, analysis and reporting.
Using digital inspection apps such as Pervidi increases the reliability and accuracy of the information being processed. Businesses that adopt digital safety inspection systems significantly reduce the risk and disruption to the businesses operations, employees and equipment and increase safety for all stakeholders.
Digital safety inspections and mobile technology reduce the time between inspection, , reporting, planning and analyzing data. Mobile software and inspection apps accommodate different inspection parameters and safety issues and benefit directly from using mobile device through features such as GPS/Date/Time stamps as well as unique features such as corrective actions and speech to text. Paperless safety inspections are becoming the standard across industries where regular inspection, compliance and planned maintenance are necessary.
Benefits of Pervidi and how to implement digital safety inspection applications:
Real Time Data
Assessment and evaluations via mobile solutions and applications send out the data to management and other stakeholders as its happening, cutting down time on data gathering/compilation, data entry, encoding, sorting, analysis and reporting through channels. It’s easy to access previous data and historic reports for comparative purposes, to plan and action corrective actions, spot trends or further verification. A paperless safety inspection app deems it unnecessary to go through channels but rather opens up the route of communication wherein all concerned management and staff have access to the information in a timely manner or as it is happening.
Pervidi makes digital safety inspection and software completely configurable and tailor the checklists to the exact needs of the organization. Pervidi is accommodates different businesses and industries unique needs 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 fit one package.
Rugged mobile devices
It is important to keep the mobile devices protected and charged to conduct undisturbed inspections as well as abide by set government and site regulations (e.g. in oil and gas industry- Intrinsically safe devices). The investment into a protective drop-proof, waterproof case for a mobile phone, iPad or tablet ensures that your mobile device is ready for data entry in any environment. Equipping hardware in a certified case ensures that your inspectors have the correct equipment for the job at hand.
Digital inspections keep inspectors mobile and allow them to cover more ground and visit more project sites. It takes inspectors significantly less time to fill out digital forms and add specific notes / information such as visual verification using the mobile device camera or using the speech to text than paper based systems. Pervidi allows digital forms to be hosted on smartphones, tablets and phablets. This allows information to be accessed, shared and sent out when needed without the physical restrictions of handling paper forms.
Mobile Devices and accessories
The correct hardware mounts or straps make it easier for the inspector to concentrate on the work they are doing instead of handling their mobile device, reducing the risk of an accident in the workplace. Functional accessories such as a shoulder strap or hard grip, or a vehicle mount or table stand, put the mobile device where it is needed and increase productivity, reduce the risk of damaging the device and/or the user or others in the surrounding.
Mobile Device Management
Managing a fleet of mobile devices can quickly acquire a substantial cost if the initial purchase of the mobile device is not carefully considered. Ensuring all software and hardware are able to be updated on a timely basis, security access, remote support, manage the battery life and controlled charging are important functions that need to be taken into consideration by the management. For example, secure charging stations can be the solution for where devices are stored at the end of the day, recharging and storing multiple devices at the same time.
Investing in digital/electronic inspection software 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. Using mobile devices and software for daily business operations and equipping the mobile device with unique functional accessories significantly increases inspection efficiency and lead to overall cost savings and improve the Return on Investment( ROI).
