A very large chemicals processer increases the efficiency of asset safety inspections with inspection templates and automated reporting, using reliable Unitags and SafeTrak software from Scafftag.
A large chemical processing plant was keeping track of asset inspections on paper. With thousands of ladders, handrails and floor gratings on the list of assets that need regular safety inspection, the paper trail became exceedingly complex and time intensive to manage.
The plant was already using Unitag to communicate which assets were deemed safe, or out of use. To keep employees safe and the facility compliant in an efficient way, a solution was needed to replace time-consuming handwritten inspection reports.
Scafftag’s proposal – SafeTrak software, to replace the entire inspection paper trail with an online tool. All assets needing inspection can be set up in SafeTrak, to make inspection planning and follow-up a lot more practical. Asset inspections can be planned at regular intervals. To each type of asset, a standard or custom inspection template can be linked.
In-house inspectors receive a notification on their ATEX-compliant handheld from SafeTrak and can start an asset inspection by scanning the asset’s RFID-enabled Multi-Tag from Scafftag. A pre-defined inspection template guides the inspectors in the field, and a report is shared automatically with stakeholders on inspection completion.
Assets are identified in the field with the RFID-enabled Unitag that can resist intensive cleaning processes. The tag’s RFID-chip can be programmed to link the actual field asset to its corresponding inspection history and asset details in SafeTrak.
To answer specific customer needs, Scafftag customised the flexible SafeTrak software in just 3 months. This enables the company’s customers to quickly and easily implement the solution in its existing inspection processes.
The chemicals processing plant can now inspect assets faster in a more accurate and easier way. Inspection of assets takes place in a shorter time-span. Digital inspection reports are automatically generated and shared, and the time-consuming asset inspection paper trail is no more.
