The Case Study: Fast, paperless asset safety inspections

A very large chemicals processer increased the efficiency of asset safety inspections with inspection templates and automated reporting using reliable Unitags and SafeTrak software from Scafftag. Read the case study and find out how can be thousands of asset inspections managed easily.

Challenge: Easily manage thousands of asset inspections

A large chemical processing plant was keeping track of asset inspections on paper. With thousands of ladders, handrails and floor gratings on the list of assets that need regular safety inspection, the paper trail became exceedingly complex and time intensive to manage.

The plant was already using Unitag to communicate which assets were inspected, and deemed safe, or out of use. To keep employees safe and the facility compliant in an efficient way, a solution was needed to replace time-consuming handwritten inspection reports.

Solution: A digital asset inspection trail

Scafftag proposed the SafeTrak software to replace the entire inspection paper trail with an online tool. All assets that need inspection can be set up in SafeTrak to make inspection planning and follow-up a lot more practical. Asset inspections can be planned at regular intervals, and to each type of asset a standard or custom inspection template can be linked.

In-house inspectors receive a notification on their ATEX-compliant handheld from SafeTrak and can start an asset inspection by scanning the asset’s RFID-enabled Multi-Tag from Scafftag. A pre-defined inspection template guides the inspectors in the field, and a report is shared automatically with stakeholders on inspection completion.

Assets are identified in the field with the RFID-enabled Unitag that can resist intensive cleaning processes. The tag’s RFID-chip can be programmed to link the actual field asset to its corresponding inspection history and asset details in SafeTrak.

To answer specific customer needs, Scafftag customised the flexible SafeTrak software in just 3 months. This enabled our customer to quickly and easily implement the solution in its existing inspection processes.

Result: Fast asset inspection and automated reporting

The chemicals processing plant can now inspect assets faster in a more accurate and easier way. More assets are inspected in a shorter time-span. Digital inspection reports are automatically generated and shared, and the time-consuming asset inspection paper trail is no longer needed.

The case study: Optimised Lockout/Tagout with a clear view on all Lockout procedures and on all machinery in use at 2 production sites

A large food processor already had a number of Lockout/Tagout solutions in place. However, as the number of machines increased and became more complex, the need to optimise existing Lockout/Tagout procedures became a priority. The food processor wanted a practical system that could offer a clear view on all Lockout procedures and on all machinery in use at 2 production sites.

Brady Solution: Lockout procedure writing service & software for management system

We proposed full Lockout/Tagout Services for both sites. After a kickoff meeting to fine-tune the scope of each service, Brady sent an overview of all deliverables with a clear pricing system and an ambitious 6-month horizon for final delivery.

A Brady engineer visited both sites, accompanied by an experienced customer maintenance professional. During these visits, our engineer looked closely at every machine in use, took notes and pictures to write efficient, machine specific Lockout/ Tagout procedures. Our engineer also illustrated the procedures with machine and energy control point pictures for fast recognition on the work floor.

Customer stakeholders received illustrated procedures via Brady’s unique LINK360 Safety Procedure Management Software. The software offers a clear view on all Lockout procedures in use and can be accessed by stakeholders across sites to approve, edit, scale, print or digitally share procedures. Brady provided LINK360 training so that our customer can keep the procedure management software up to date independently.

Lockout devices were already available at both sites to block energy control points in the off-position, together with safety padlocks to lock the devices in place. Brady can easily supply additional devices and padlocks if needed, complete with padlock engraving and key charting.

Results: Optimised, efficient Lockout/Tagout

While Lockout/Tagout procedure writing was ongoing for the 2 sites, our customer increased the scope to include another site in the same country, and 1 more in a neighbouring country. At all 4 sites, we are now looking into making a total of 1000+ efficient, machine specific best practice Lockout/Tagout procedures available to relevant employees on smartphones and tablets with the Brady Smart Lockout App.

Custom Lockout shadowboards: Efficient, top of mind safety in the workplace

Make safety top of mind in the workplace and optimise Lockout/Tagout efficiency with highly visible, custom lockout shadowboards. Shadowboards increase the impact of Lockout/Tagout and help to further reduce maintenance risks and accidents. Read the case study from the large e-commerce company’s warehouse.

Why custom shadowboards?

  • increase efficiency by organising relevant lockout procedures, padlocks, devices, tags and accessories on shadowboards
  • keep safety and Lockout/Tagout top of mind in the workplace with highly visible shadowboards
  • maintain efficiency by promoting the return of tools to the board with tool shadows

Read the case study from a large e-commerce organisation’s warehouses, where they already use highly visible custom shadowboards to optimise Lockout/Tagout efficiency and to keep safety top of mind in the workplace.

E-commerce warehouse has increased Lockout/Tagout visibility & efficiency with shadowboards

A large e-commerce organization wanted to improve maintenance safety by facilitating the use of Lockout/Tagout and by creating visibility on ongoing maintenance projects that require Lockout/Tagout in their warehouses.

Solution: Customisable master shadowboard

Brady proposed a custom master shadowboard to create the desired visibility for ongoing lockout maintenance. The master shadowboard was installed as a pilot in one of our customer’s major warehouses.

Shadowboards make Lockout/Tagout considerably more efficient, by clearly showing employees and contractors which tools they need to retrieve, and where they need to store them after servicing a machine. After a trial period, the master shadowboard was finetuned and presented as a starting point to our customer’s other warehouses. Brady customised the master version to accommodate sitespecific needs when required.

Each shadowboard is 1.4 metres high and consists of 90 cm wide panels. The board has rounded corners, and was made out of 8 mm thick white plexiglass. These large boards, that can span one or several panels, include ‘shadows’ of every Lockout/Tagout padlock, device and accessory used in a specific workplace area. All corresponding Lockout/Tagout tools are added to the board. Shadowboards make it very easy and efficient for employees to retrieve the tools they need, and to bring them back after servicing a machine. They also very visible in the workplace and serve as a constant reminder to keep safety top of mind.

Results: Efficient and highly visible Lockout/Tagout

The large e-commerce company’s warehouse employees now have Lockout/ Tagout solutions within reach to protect themselves during machine interventions. The Lockout/Tagout padlocks, decives and accessories, as well as the tags, are presented on large, highly visible shadowboards that make it easy and fast to retrieve the right tools to protect their safety.
