As the land of the bushfires and with high temperature throughout the year in certain parts of the country, Australian fire inspections safety is undoubtedly of paramount importance.
95% of all fires are deemed extinguishable if the correct fire extinguisher is applied promptly in the situation. The frightening statistic that only 13% of people are aware of the differences in applying them raises many questions. The best combatant for workplace fires is through proper education and thorough inspection. The best way to do this is by using digital inspection checklists for fire inspections. Paperless solutions are becoming a powerful and versatile tool in the OHS and QA fields, many industries adopting the method and seeing dramatic results.
Digital inspection software carries numerous benefits to the aged printed solution. As fire safety devices and equipment are located in specific locations, bringing paper checklists is a cumbersome dated method. New features within inspection software remove the need for large storage of inspection records and for inspectors to carry lengthy, often out-of-date checklists. Mobile devices represent a safe and versatile tool in the hands of the inspectors. They are even available as intrinsically safe or as a rugged device, depending on the hazardous nature of the environment.
