Avoid tragic accidents with cutting edge prevention
Have you noticed that for some time we have often heard of disasters that often have been linked to an unspoken problem that concerns the quality or rigour of inspections? Could they have been prevented with the right measures?
Inspections, audits or compliance controls are very vast universes and the different types of activities that surround these areas are very numerous. Most organizations, regardless of industry, regardless of the nature of the business, most likely including YOUR business, must (or should) schedule regular inspection activities to better manage processes, assets or anything that tends towards prevention, including occupational health and safety.
A structured inspection process can better protect you in the event of an incident or accident, as it will help provide you with tangible data on the quality of your management.
For some organizations, inspection activities are regulated and structured, while others are “optional.” Unfortunately, we sometimes consider less the measure of the impact of the activity itself, its relevance and also the financial risks associated with it.
Here are the top 3 factors for a quality cutting edge digital inspection:
- Regular and rigorous execution of inspection activities
Regular inspection planning, tailored to the level of risk and inherent impacts, brings more credibility to the organization and its know-how.
- The quality of data collection
The information gathered during each inspection is crucial. However, you need to collect strategic data on an electronic medium, including a database that will allow you to efficiently query your historical data and obtain relevant results. This contributes greatly to a better preventive and proactive approach, therefore less reactive.
- Formal implementation of remedial measures
The credibility of inspections comes in particular with the application of corrective measures where appropriate. It is therefore very important to plan remedial measures based on their impacts and criticalities as soon as possible. These are usually notified by the implementation of targeted alerts that in turn trigger the necessary follow-up events.
Although an inspection is not always an “obligation,” it is still a necessary investment to preserve the quality of processes, health and safety prevention, asset value or the performance of various normative controls. It all depends on the degree of tolerance of the impacts, direct or indirect, that you give to your business strategies.
