For any sporting match or event there is a great need for safety and security, provided by sports facility inspection.
Sports facility inspection can be conducted for any major arena or local grounds, with the key principles remaining the same – to provide a safe environment for all patrons and workers, as well as ensuring the sport can be played without problems from the venue. Alongside a long list of compliance with industry regulations needs, sports facility inspection is about ensuring that the environment can perform as designed to the best of its ability. This doesn’t just mean that it is safe to use, but that it operates as efficiently as possible and can help to provide an enjoyable experience as part of the sporting event. For modern sports venues and facilities, there are complex designs, operations and construction that require an adequate inspection. There may be sections that are repeated around an arena, or unique characteristics that need a versatile inspection design. Regardless, it’s evident that modern sporting facilities need modern inspection methods.
Inspectors carrying out checks of a sports facility can today take advantage of features and functionalities provided on mobile devices, when paired with a digital inspection platform. This union means that a paperless inspection can make use of device features common on smartphones or tablets such as the camera during the inspection. Auditing the safety of seating or staircases in a major arena is clearly key to the venue being fit for use, with a camera any deficiency can be recorded visually. The inspector can take a picture of a crack or deficiency in any equipment/construction and then attach this to the report. Due to the marked failure, the notice can then be sent to necessary teams straight away. As soon as the report is transmitted, management can be notified, as well as maintenance teams for repair and replacements. On premium inspection solutions, checklists can also have corrective actions built into the reporting structure. This means that if an inspector marks an aforementioned failure in a seating section, there may be a quick action for the inspector to take to prevent future wear or even rectify the issue. Not only does this mean the unsafe structure or equipment can be immediately removed from use if necessary, but also that the best action at the time of discovery of the issue will be taken. Sometimes this can even save the need for replacements to be ordered, if sufficient actions can be taken to repair the item live on site.
