Welcome to part 3 of our three-part blog series! The first piece in the series titled The Top 4 Ways Asset Inspection Leads to Operational Excellence shed light on why asset inspection systems are important, while the second 5 Things to Look for in the Optimum Asset Inspection System discussed the key features and functionalities that must be included in the platform you choose. As we come to the last part of our series, we want to highlight how to implement a digital asset inspection system at your organization to simplify your safety journey.
Four Steps to Implement Digital Asset Inspection Systems
Step 1: Going paperless
Shifting to a digitized system from pen and paper is a crucial first step as we return to work. This will help limit all points of contact and reduce the need for workers to be exposed to various surfaces which may be contaminated. It’s time to toss the clipboards and paper to the side, and make room for a new robust and reliable solution.
The great news is you don’t have to re-invent the wheel. You can convert all your paper forms to digital documents, outfitted to look identical to your old forms. This will help maintain continuity and consistency in the long run. What’s more is this will make it easier for workers to adapt to this new system without having the fear of getting used to an entirely new way of doing things.
By going paperless, you can also gain greater freedom to customize your forms to meet your organization’s needs. For instance, with COVID-19 top of mind and the protection of your team as a top priority, custom coronavirus aspects can be added to your forms so your teams can stay vigilant and alert members if a risk is present. With an automated system, you can ensure all will be notified so the proper action can be taken to rectify the situation.
Centralizing all information in one convenient system is also crucial to going paperless. Now all key stakeholders will have access to this data as it won’t be confined to one computer or binder. As we venture back into a new reality, this is especially important as site managers and supervisors will no longer have to travel from one site to the other to gather the information they need. With the click of a button on their mobile device, they can access anything they desire, whether they are on or offline.
