Do I Need To Perform Fire Safety Inspections In Hazardous Areas?
Routine inspections of fire safety equipment such as fire extinguishers, sprinklers, alarms, and fire doors are always important, but in hazardous areas they are imperative. According to OSHA Publication 3073, hazardous locations are areas where flammable liquids, gases or vapors or combustible dust exist in sufficient quantities to produce an explosion or fire. This puts hazardous areas at a much greater risk of experiencing a fire so they must be prepared to mitigate the risk at all times. Routine inspection and maintenance of fire protection devices are essential for ensuring safety.
How Can I Perform Mobile Inspections On Fire Safety Equipment In Hazardous Areas?
It is important for companies to track inspections on fire and safety equipment and a software solution like InspectNTrack is the best way to ensure compliance with any Authority Having Jurisdiction. InspectNTrack’s mobile application makes the inspection process paperless and efficient, but how do companies that operate in hazardous or flammable areas which prohibit typical mobile devices accomplish this? Using intrinsically safe mobile computers and scanners which are certified compliant for the particular hazards within the environment make mobile inspections possible.
