Staying compliant with NFPA standards is non-negotiable for ensuring workplace safety. NFPA inspection software, such as InspectNTrack, comes equipped with predefined inspection forms and processes specifically designed to meet NFPA, OSHA, ANSI, AFSA, and other AHJ requirements. This tailored approach eliminates the risk of compliance issues, providing peace of mind for businesses striving to uphold the highest safety standards.
Improved Accuracy: The use of NFPA inspection software significantly enhances accuracy by eliminating manual data entry and reducing the risk of human error. Automated processes ensure that inspections are conducted consistently and in compliance with relevant standards.
Enhanced Compliance: With NFPA inspection software, businesses can ensure compliance with regulatory requirements and industry standards. The software provides a systematic approach to inspections, ensuring that all necessary checks and assessments are performed, and documentation is properly maintained. The tailored NFPA compliant inspection forms guide field technicians through each inspection, and ensure that the right process is followed and the right checks are made. The forms are different and specific to each type of equipment, and the software displays the proper form automatically after an equipment barcode is scanned.
Efficiency translates to savings, both in terms of time and resources. InspectNTrack’s NFPA inspection software streamlines the entire inspection lifecycle, reducing the time spent on manual processes and paperwork. With automated scheduling, streamlined compliance, and centralized data management, businesses can allocate resources more effectively, leading to significant cost savings in the long run.
The steps required to perform a monthly inspection on something like a fire extinguisher with a manual process include the following: tracking the last inspection date, remembering to schedule the next inspection, creating a new Excel spreadsheet or paper checklist for the month, providing the spreadsheet or checklist to the field technician, sending the field technician out to perform the inspection and write the results down, having the field technician return the inspection results to the office, updating and saving or filing the manual inspection form, manually reading the completed form to pick out equipment that failed and needs attention, and so on….
Clearly, managing inspections manually requires a lot of steps and a lot of work. But let’s not forget that it would be extremely rare to have just one fire extinguisher. For most organizations, these steps must be repeated over and over for 300 – 3,000 – 30,000 fire extinguishers.
Now, let’s review the steps required to perform a monthly fire extinguisher inspection with NFPA inspection software: scan a barcode, answer the inspection questions on the screen, and done. The inspection software tracks last inspection dates, schedules the inspection, saves the results, generates compliance reports, and performs automatic follow-up actions for any inspections that fail. When you consider the time savings for 300 – 30,000 extinguishers it can be pretty dramatic!
