Electronic Safety Logbooks provide the best way for keeping safe records of your industrial equipment.
Pre-shift inspections and logbooks ensure timely, accurate accounts of safety inspections and deficiencies detected before operating any type of heavy equipment or industrial vehicle. They are fundamental in monitoring performance over time against similar equipment, giving the possibility for a detailed ROI analysis. This also allows maintenance and management the freedom of checking historical performance to better understand the severity, nature and background to why a fault could have occurred. As safety inspections and equipment maintenance are an important aspect of the operations of any mine, logbooks represent an obvious choice for organisations and businesses who want to modernise their mining operations. Keeping track with equipment performance; minimizing breakdowns; managing deficiencies; and especially minimising the risk of injury are critical to the efficiency of any operation, let alone the large scale of many mining processes.
Many organisations maintain printed logbooks that are completed by operators at the beginning of their shifts. Pervidi’s Electronic Logbooks replaces your paper logbooks by allowing your operators to record their pre-shift and post-shift inspections using Pervidi’s easy-to-use Inspection App. The inspection app can be downloaded on any consumer or business mobile device, running on iOS and Android platforms – its even accessible on any rugged and intrinsically safe smartphone or tablet available. Virtually no training is required; the App walks the user through questions/answers and records the pre-shift observations electronically. Thanks to the power of the mobile device, the user can take advantage of certain functions such as the camera and touchscreen to take pictures and annotate them. Other features include speech-to-text and drawings, as well as standardised response and easy input checklist sections.
There are also many other functions that ease the inspection process such as alerts to management when pre-shift inspections are NOT completed, or automatically suggested corrective actions when certain deficiencies are recorded. This allows inspectors and officials to address the problem onsite, at least to a certain extent which prevents further at times. Such corrective actions and alerts are pre-customised from the web-portal and can be sent to any maintenance, management or inspection team necessary. All reports and logs are automatically filed and categorised on the hosted system, either run in-house on private servers or via the cloud (SaaS). All checklists are organised in a logical way to ensure they can be accessed quicker and relate to a certain category or asset. This also improves the speed and ease of compliance, updating regulation to checklists and seeing overall company performance.
