Chemicals inspection seems like a blatantly obvious task that is beyond improvement. Once there is a safe way to inspect hazardous liquids or materials, there is no need to change that right?
The matter remains that chemicals inspection can not only be made safer but can also be made more efficient. This doesn’t even just go for the inspection of the said products, but also their lifetime storage and management. It has long been established that chemicals inspection and hazardous materials handling requires strict guidelines and procedures. However often these stay out of date, and the procedures are left inefficient. With the advancement of mobile technology, there is now a safe way to inspection chemicals, and manage them throughout their lifetime using paperless inspection methods.
For many organisations that operate with hazardous assets such as those in the oil and gas industry, inspection has not only been a paramount safety feature, but a question of how you can improve your processes. With the introduction of Intrinsically Safe (IS) mobile devices, employees were safe to carry mobile devices in Zones or Areas ranked by their hazard level. This was usually for methods of communication or to make recordings via integration with other devices and machinery. Now such organisations are using there is mobile devices to run safety inspections, regular site audit or asset management. With the invention of paperless inspection applications running on the same mobile devices, employees can now also make recordings and follow checklists to perform checks that are needed across an organisation in such an industry. Allowing all the safety inspection of the non-hazardous location to be the same as that of the hazardous location means the cross-examination of data becomes much easier and more efficient.
