Many contractors underestimate the importance of daily machine inspections. However, experience makes it evident that such an attitude is far from being fair.
What’s going happen to get your operators into the habit of performing daily inspections of all the heavy equipment they use? An accident? Unfortunately, for too many contractors that is the answer. Like a family that orders a home security alarm system only after their house has already been burglarized.Operators get on the same machines every day, and nothing bad has ever happened to them. So it’s just hard to believe that something wrong will ever happen if they skip their daily machine inspection. This is where the underestimation comes from.
Laziness, complacency, self-confidence, lack of focus of the workers are the most common causes of not performing inspections. The other important thing is how the inspecting process is organized and maintained. To inspect their vehicles, operators usually have to fill out numerous paper forms and hand them over to the managers then. It doesn’t seem very convenient, does it? Could it be the reason why many workers get lazy to inspect their machines? Today, to change things for the better, managers are trying to implement a more convenient and easy approach. They often appeal to the mobile mobile business apps.
The Snappii Corporation has created a mobile application intended to assist Operators, Contractors, and Subcontractors in the implementation of daily inspections and improve the overall safety performance.
The Heavy Equipment Inspection App provides both mechanical and visual checkpoints for heavy vehicles such as trucks, tractors, diesel RVs, cranes, hydraulic elevators etc. The app is composed of multiple forms and checklists with sections for technicians to give their comments and feedback.
