Scafftag’s clever way to save lives with faster equipment inspections

  • 11 Apr 2023

Diligent inspection planning, thorough equipment inspections and clear inspection reports and histories can save lives, avoid suffering and major costs in a lot of industries. Planning, inspecting and reporting can be streamlined, customised and largely automated in Scafftag’s SafeTrak app, which saves on time.

Too many workplace accidents still stem from using equipment that is not fit for use. These accidents can have grave consequences. Imagine a scaffold collapsing: co-workers and passers-by might suffer a serious injury, with a colossal impact for themselves, their families and your business.

Think about what happens when your fire extinguishers do nothing when they should, when valves suddenly break down, or when the reverse warning indicator on a forklift does not work.

Safetrak inspection software makes time consuming paper-based equipment inspections a lot faster. Safetrak inspection software is used for planning, managing and reporting for workplace safety inspections. Plug-in software modules are available for managing specific equipment such as ladders, scaffolding, etc. They contain the necessary inspection checks as determined by legislation and industry practices.


SafeTrak can keep track of a wide range of equipment such as personal protection equipment, drills, hammers, screwdrivers, scaffolding, ladders, label printers or lockout bags. With SafeTrak, every tool is easily checkable, in or out, as long as it has a serial number, barcode or RFID label.
