Scaffolding inspection system? Look no further with Inspect7®
Following scaffolding inspection requirements are key to ensuring safety when working at height. Therefore, it is of paramount importance that inspections are carried out correctly. However, traditional inspection methods can become tedious and hard to keep on top of, for example being aware when the next inspection is due, or keeping paper copies of every inspection. These outdated processes have long called for a digital scaffolding inspection system, such as Inspect7®.
Scaffolding Inspection Regulations
According to the HSE (Health & Safety Executive) “It is the scaffold users/hirers’ responsibility to ensure that all scaffolding has been inspected as follows:
- following installation / before first use
- at an interval of no more than every 7 days thereafter
- following any circumstances liable to jeopardise the safety of the installation eg high winds.”
Inspect7® has been created primarily to ensure clients never miss an inspection and are always compliant with the regulations. Users of Inspect7® have access to a dedicated portal which gives them full inspection information for all of their scaffolds and projects. The inspection device also displays a visual countdown to the next inspection date, so that any user of the scaffold has an immediate indication of whether the scaffold is safe to use.
How does it work?
Inspect7® makes the inspection process simple and efficient. First of all, the inspection app eliminates the procedure of repeatedly filling in the same old tagging system onsite, as well as inputting the same data on a scaffold register. With Inspect7®, this is all done in real time using Near Field Communication (NFC) and cloud technology.
The online portal then allows users to see an overview of all of their projects in real time, and as a result, immediately informs them if an inspection has been failed or missed. Inspection reports can then be generated in a matter of clicks, downloaded and sent onto clients. This eliminates the need to keep countless paper records for filling.
