Simplify OSHA Inspections With Slate Pages
04/15/2022 — Slate Pages
Record keeping and inspections help to keep track of our assets and keep them working. We often overlook some items or don’t always feel we need to track them for our use. What we do know is that there are organizations (too many to count) that have mandates and regulations based on industry and equipment type.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) usually has a large impact on most organizations, but there are others that are industry specific, such as ISO, NFPA, and CALEA. One thing that all these organizations have in common, regardless of industry, is that when something goes wrong, their standards will likely be brought into the spotlight, and they may even have someone knocking at your door asking questions.
Slate Pages provides users with an easy way to track your assets, standardize and simplify your inspections, and allow for a quick way to access your records, all without having to store reams of paper in a filing cabinet and eliminating the need to search for them when they’re needed.
HOW IT WORKS
Personnel can download the free Slate Pages app, scan the QR code on a piece of equipment, and gather all information about that equipment as well as record their inspections from their mobile device. Equipment without a QR code tag can also be tracked by an ID number or name, which can be searched by administrators. For example, fire hoses and firearms may be something difficult to affix an asset tag to. But by importing the serial number or ID number that is already a part of the equipment, you can search it and track it!
Different organizations may come into your agency looking for this information. It may be scheduled, such as ISO inspections for fire departments or CALEA assessments for police departments, but it can also be unplanned. OSHA can come to your organization at any time and assess your agency’s compliance…and it is probably something you should be prepared for before they come knocking on your door.
Utilizing pre-configured views on the online web portal, or by simply scanning or searching an equipment item, everything they need can be found quickly rather than searching through multiple pages of records and data.
Utilizing Slate Pages for your asset record keeping will provide an easy way to assure your personnel are tracking use, proving your compliance, and reducing the potential for injuries, costly fines, and payouts.
