ISO 20338 and Maintaining Control of Fire Prevention

Whilst there are many examples of organisations, individuals and communities that take fire safety for granted, it’s imperative for all businesses to regard fire safety with the upmost importance. International standards such as ISO 20338 regulate things like the oxygen reduction systems used for fire prevention; specifying the minimum and maximum requirements for various machinery, equipment and operating environments. ISO 20338 will help to specify the design, installation and maintenance of fixed oxygen reduction systems in particular, applying more to those systems that have nitrogen abundance in the air. This can of course apply for business with workplace environments handling particular materials or chemicals, but also for industrial size production plants.

Fire Inspections using Mobile Devices

Digital inspection software carries numerous benefits to the aged printed solution. As fire safety devices and equipment are located in specific locations, bringing paper checklists is a cumbersome dated method. New features within inspection software remove the need for large storage of inspection records and for inspectors to carry lengthy, often out-of-date checklists. Mobile devices represent a safe and versatile tool in the hands of the inspectors. They are even available as intrinsically safe or as a rugged device, depending on the hazardous nature of the environment. Camera and touchscreen annotation gives a new input method, as well as new data to be analysed. The speed of input can also be reduced by using speech-to-text services or standardised response. Scanning of barcodes is a further input available. There really are a plethora of new features that mobile devices and paperless inspection software can introduce to the inspection process.

How Digital Fire Inspection can Improve Prevention and Protection

As Australia reels from the scathing bushfires, it’s important to recognise and evaluate how fire inspection and prevention can be improved. There is no better way to prepare for and prevent things in the future than to evaluate what is important to do before things happen. This means having a thorough and up to date routine fire inspection and testing in line with industry regulations. In Australia this follows the Australian Standards system, building off the Industrial Organization for Standards (ISO). The Australian Standards AS1851 requires scheduled maintenance and inspection for all fire safety equipment and systems. Such inspections can vary depending on the building or facility application, which naturally requires both a customisable and adaptable inspection solution and method.

Paperless Winter Inspections

Paperless inspection solutions allow inspectors to make use of a mobile device and its features to record data in different ways possible to the inspector using pen and paper. Smartphone or tablet functions such as the camera and touchscreen can be used to record visual information rather than relying on written descriptions. This is particularly useful in winter inspections as recordings can be made against previous inspections in a similar time period (also made possible thanks to integrated GPS timestamps) and hence the wear and tear of assets or machinery can be judged. By taking photos, the use of equipment can be demonstrated more clearly, alongside the obvious benefits of tracking degradation or material faults. This can then be tracked on the life-cycle tracking of assets – something available on many premium paperless inspection solutions today. Life-cycle tracking is available for all reports, maintenance and compliance, from cradle to grave.

Paperless Property Inspection

Today many organisations who are managing their own property checks for commercial reasons or simply for regulatory purposes are using digital inspection applications. Industrial standards such as those published by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO), can be easily built into checklists so that the audit trail becomes much simpler. In such checklists, there can be specific sub-parts that directly conform the inspection to the standard’s inclusive points. Measurements and information can be recorded in standardised response boxes, via speech-to-text services or image attachments. As paperless applications use mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets, the camera is as simple as the smartphone that employees use at home. Images can likewise be annotated to show certain features like mould growth directions or the wear or damage to a fire escape route.
