What Can You Audit or Inspect With The Checker Software? Almost Anything

Posted by Shawn Macpherson on Fri, Feb 08, 2019 @ 08:00 AM

There's no limit to what you can inspect or audit using our comprehensive audit/inspection software solution.

Since 2000, The Checker has provided checklist books used for various equipment inspections such as forklifts, cranes, machinery, vehicles, and other such heavy commercial equipment. The company produces the best checklist books available for inspecting these assets.

The Checker now also provides online checklists that can be used on mobile devices. The Checker Software can be used for almost anything that has a list of items that can be audited or inspected. This includes virtually all types of assets, processes, environmental conditions, etc.  

For example, consider municipal public works department deals with many diverse functions, including construction, park maintenance, trash collection, and public safety. Traditionally, such an organization would have to deal with an overwhelming number of procedures and forms. With The Checker's format, however, every function the department is responsible for can be inspected and audited, with each checklist tailored to each specific function. 

Anything that needs to be inspected our audited can be added to a checklist. You can then carry a mobile device through the facility, be it a smartphone or tablet, and The Checker Software will help you determine what you need to check and how to do it. 

You will fill out the checklist on your device, and the data will be automatically compiled and sent to the appropriate people for further examination. The checklist will be customized based on the exact inspection or auditing processes you use.  

The order in which the items are listed is a key to how useful a checklist is. These items shouldn't be based on alphabetical order or something similar. They should be listed based on the logical approach of the audit or inspection itself.

Checklists can be accessed from any device that has an internet connection. You can immediately submit the results for further analysis, allowing you to track your assets and personnel better, as well as identify new trends, hazards, and other indices that matter to your business.

Takeaway

The Checker Software allows you to inspect or audit virtually anything and coordinate an inspection program in the exact way that suits your company best. For more information on The Checker, visit our website or contact us directly.

What Makes a Good Inspection Checklist?

Posted by Shawn Macpherson on Thu, Jan 31, 2019 @ 03:00 PM

A good inspection checklist is easy to use.

Inspections and audits act as the foundation for every safety program out there. They’re how companies can gather the necessary insight to discover potential hazards, equipment malfunctions, improper staff training, or unsafe working conditions, to name a few. 

Despite this fact, many organizations look at inspections and audits as a sort of necessary evil, just for the sake of regulatory compliance. Consequently, they often cut corners or turn a blind eye to poor inspection procedures. 


The Actual Benefits of a Good Inspection Checklist

When a comprehensive inspection checklist is put together, it will contain all the necessary details for every individual asset. It needs to be simple and easy-to-use in the field but not at the expense of becoming too generic. 

When appropriately designed, inspection checklists can be done either on paper or digitally, using mobile devices and cloud-based software. An advantage of a digital checklist is its many functionalities. The Checker Software, for instance, will analyze the data, compile reports, highlight trends, identify long-term inconsistencies, and provide alerts or notifications, among many other things. It will ensure that nothing goes unnoticed or slips through the cracks. 

All of these benefits ultimately help a company’s bottom line while supporting the well-being of personnel. A good inspection checklist will be able to:

  • Minimize project delays and unproductivity
  • Lower maintenance costs
  • Reduce recurring problems
  • Prevent the use of unsafe assets, thus reducing employee injury
  • Discourage the improper or abusive use of assets
  • Help determine ideal maintenance schedules
  • Maximize scheduling productivity
  • Budget for downtime
  • Better evaluate asset quality. 

Important Aspects of the Checklist Design

It's important to keep in mind that poorly designed inspection checklists will not be taken seriously by staff members. Lists that aren't detailed enough or are not asset-specific are generally viewed as additional paperwork that needs to be done solely for the sake of regulation.  

What's more, these inferior inspection checklists will not provide many of the benefits mentioned above. So, when creating a sound inspection checklist, you should make sure to include the following aspects:

  • It should include a checkbox for every part of the asset that is essential for its safe and productive use.
  • The inspection checklist also needs to clearly state which exact problems will make that asset inoperable, as well as what issues need to be red-flagged for maintenance.
  • Checkboxes need to be listed in a logical and intuitive order, thus helping to streamline the inspection process. Listing them in alphabetical order, for instance, will force operators to waste precious time going back and forth searching for the right box to check. 
  • The overall design of the inspection checklist needs to be simple, easy to read, and easy to understand.

Takeaway

With the Checker Software, you can create your checklist format in accordance with your assets and needs. You will also have access to the many added benefits a digital inspection tool can provide. For more information, visit our website or contact us directly.

Why It's Time to Begin Using Software to Audit and Inspect Your Assets

Posted by Shawn Macpherson on Tue, Jan 22, 2019 @ 07:40 AM

Audits and inspections can be done more efficiently and effectively with software designed specifically for that purpose.

Mobile technology has become almost synonymous with the 21st century. Digital and mobile technology have changed the business landscape virtually beyond recognition. Despite these trends, some companies are still operating with paper-based processes.

When it comes to asset audits and inspections, paper still makes sense in certain situations—such as when you are inspecting a remote facility or job site outside of any internet range. But most companies can benefit tremendously from audit/inspection software. 

Some companies are already using software for this purpose, but it’s essentially nothing more than e-forms unconnected to any system. Other organizations use ERP or other software that has an audit/inspection function but isn’t designed specifically for that purpose. These software “solutions” have some advantages over paper-based audit/inspection processes, but they don’t help users make the most of the information that’s being gathered.  

Where Should You Begin Implementing Audit/Inspection Software?

Safety in the workplace is an essential aspect for the well-being and smooth functioning of an organization. It's always advisable to make use of state-of-the-art technologies to help you achieve this task.

Audit/inspection software such as The Checker Software has numerous capabilities that far surpass paper-based audits and inspections. However, somewhat paradoxically, these many capabilities make it difficult to decide where to focus initial software implementation efforts.

The answer, however, is somewhat simple and straightforward. You should begin this implementation in the areas where audits and inspections will have the most significant impact on your costs and risk.

Regardless of what these areas are, audit/inspection software should be able to forward all results gathered to the appropriate personnel and notify them via alerts, emails, notifications, etc. The software should also be able to initiate corrective actions, report on progress, archive all data, and provide configurable dashboards for automatic reporting.

Scoring capabilities, allowing you to rate the severity of a problem or defect, can also be highly valuable.

Takeaway

Audit and inspection processes stand at the foundation of every comprehensive safety program. In addition to ensuring that you comply with regulations, these procedures will help you identify and correct problems before they can lead to accidents and costs. 

The Checker Software provides all of the above and more. It's a versatile tool that can be used remotely or in-office from any device connected to the internet. For more information, feel free to visit our website or contact us directly.

What You Didn't Know Inspection Software Could Do

Posted by Shawn Macpherson on Thu, Dec 27, 2018 @ 03:25 PM

Audit/inspection software can be used to get more out of audits and inspections, for less cost.

Regular workplace audits and inspections are essential for every business looking to prevent all sorts of work-related incidents, illnesses, property damage, injuries, or loss of revenue. Software can be a powerful tool in conducting these audits and inspections.

Some businesses opt to skip out on regular inspections, hoping to save on expenses. But as time has shown repeatedly, companies that do not take their safety seriously always draw the short straw.

Many other businesses that conduct regular audits and inspections do so in the traditional way—namely, on paper. And while there is nothing wrong with paper, it has some shortcomings, especially when compared to software. 

For starters, there's the storage cost of paper. Then there's the question of access to information. With a paper-based inspection system, users will physically have to find information. With modern inspection software, the data can be easily retrieved at any time.   

There's also the issue of standardization across numerous locations, which is much easier to achieve with software and leaves far less room for error than pen and paper. And don’t forget about transparency. Reports are commonly the first thing to be looked at when there is a proposal offering, collaboration opportunity, or contract to evaluate,. And these reports are much easier to generate and are more accurate with software.

Five Things Software Can Do That You May Not Be Aware Of

Let's take a look at some other, less-obvious features that audit/inspection software can provide. 

Auto-Populating

Auto-populating information so that you don't have to rewrite it yourself is a useful feature of software. It saves time and reduces errors in your process.

Reminders

This simple, yet incredibly useful feature is something paper-based systems will never be able to do. The automated reminder system will let your staff know when the next audit or inspection is scheduled, what other tasks remain for each, or other such similar issues, ensuring that nothing slips through the cracks. 

Point-Scoring Models

Audit and inspection software like The Checker allows users to assign scores to items, rather than simply passing or failing them.

Notifications

An entire year is a long time, and annual audits and inspections can easily escape your mind. But with software, you can schedule notifications.

Red-Flagging Compliance Items

You can design your audit/inspection software to red-flag compliance items that would block audits and inspections from being completed.

Takeaway

While these features may seem intuitive and straightforward, they are nevertheless crucial elements that will ensure the safety of your workplace and prevent anything from slipping through the cracks. With these features in place, there will be less room for error, more visible improvements, and fewer accidents overall.

Streamlining Facility Management: A Case Study

Posted by Shawn Macpherson on Fri, Dec 21, 2018 @ 08:00 AM

fire extinguisher

As the vice president of facilities for Journey Health a large mental healthcare organization, John Pockey is responsible for 80 buildings. The Checker is helping keep them safe.

Many of Journey Health’s buildings are residential facilities housing people suffering from a variety of mental health issues. Pockey has a team of five inspectors, and one of these inspectors visits each facility once a month to conduct site audits, looking for any damage and upkeep needed. While there, they also check emergency equipment to make sure it’s working—a job that’s particularly challenging in Journey Health’s homes.

Fire extinguishers need to be checked monthly in any building, and a tag on each extinguisher is supposed to document each inspection. But some residents with behavior problems like to remove these tags, Pockey said, making it difficult to prove the inspections have occurred in order to comply  with regulations that require monthly inspections.

Also, to keep residents from panicking and helping them evacuate if needed after a loss of power, each residence has emergency lights in the hallways and stairways that will stay on with battery power for up to two hours. These lights also need to be checked monthly, and Pockey wanted a consistent process for inspecting them  and documenting those inspections.

That’s where The Checker Software comes in.

Journey Health is now using The Checker Software for its monthly inspections of the residences, as well as for the organization’s administrative facilities and outpatient clinics. The software, which is provided as software-as-a-service (SaaS), is well worth it’s minimal cost, Pockey said.

“It’s cut out a lot of steps in our process,” he said. “It saves a lot of time.”

The software can be used on any device connected to the internet, and Pockey said his inspectors use it on their smartphones. That capability was a selling point, he said.

“Everybody has a smartphone, so there was no extra equipment cost,” he said.

One feature of the software that Pockey greatly appreciates is its barcode reader. Barcodes can be put on each fire extinguisher and emergency light. By taking a picture of each barcode, the software immediately knows which specific piece of equipment is being inspected.

“I’ve looked for years for barcode software, and the price was just too high,” he said. “But The Checker wasn’t.”

Pockey also likes that work orders can be automatically generated and sent to maintenance when a deficiency is found. And he appreciates that all inspections and corrective actions are automatically archived and aggregated.

“Down the road, as we get into this, it’s going to provide us with a lot of data analytics,” he said.

Journey Health signed up for the software early in 2018, and The Checker provided training sessions until all of Journey Health’s users knew how to get the most out of it. Inspection forms also needed to be built.

“The form-building software is really easy to use, but with 80 buildings, we had to make 80 forms,” Pockey said.

During the process of learning the software and building the forms, The Checker always provided  prompt assistance, Pockey said.

“Their technical support staff is great at troubleshooting problems and fixing whatever needs to be fixed,” he said. ‘They are top-notch.”

The Checker Software is well liked within the organization, he said. Inspectors find that it makes their job easier, and the organization’s leaders like it because they can see reports as soon as they’re finished.

“I highly recommend The Checker Software,” Pockey said. “It’s been extremely valuable to our organization.”

Sharing the Cost of Service

Journey Health System is a nonprofit organization in Pennsylvania that acts as an umbrella organization for its member affiliates, all of which are nonprofits focused on mental health. Journey Health provides these organizations with management, administrative, advocacy, and facility support.

Journey Health’s board of directors is made up of representatives from each of its affiliates, which maintain their independence but benefit from the synergies of working together. Journey Health’s mission is to help these affiliates share costs and be able to focus on their core services.

The support Journey Health provides includes fiscal, human resources, compliance, information technology, clinical best-practice consultation, risk management, and bulk purchasing.

5 steps to a well designed checklist

Posted by Shawn Macpherson on Mon, Nov 05, 2018 @ 09:09 AM

 

5 steps picture

No one wants to do extra work. You’ve probably seen it in your own workplace. Employees and Managers alike will always try to get the job done as quickly as possible. This is no different when it come to using The Checker Software for creating your custom Audit and Inspection forms.

Although having the flexibility to put whatever you want into your inspection form is an amazing feature, it can also be your greatest downfall. Here are 5 steps to follow when building out your inspection form:

  • 1. Add As Few Fields As Possible

This may sound counter-intuitive but research shows that the less fields you have on a form, the more likely a user is to complete the form. Inspections often require a lot of information to be gathered in order to remain compliant with specific regulations. Because of this, adding additional fields may make matters worse.

When considering adding new fields to a form ask yourself this question, “What will I use the data for?” If you can’t quickly answer which report this data will be used for or which governing body you will pass along this information to, take that field out of your form.

  • 2. Fields Should Be Organized Based On Your Process

If you’ve ever filled out information on a form only to go back and forth between pages in order to review notes or look at previously entered information, than you understand the value of this best-practice.

When planning out your Audit or Inspection form, make sure to consider each location and the method that is used by the Auditor/Inspector to complete the inspection. Consider things like, location, types of items being inspected, action items that may be gathered, team members working on the inspection, general notes that may be gathered.

  • 3. Make The Forms Easy To Fill Out

Some users may be using a phone, tablet or laptop in order to complete an inspection. Users will have varying skills when it comes to typing. As a best-practice, use as many auto-suggest and drop down fields as possible.

Other ways to make forms easy to fill out include having pre-populated fields, yes/no options, and multi-select fields. The Checker Software comes will all of the features built-in to make your life easier.

  • 4. Complete The Forms Yourself

It may go without saying but we have seen many times where someone builds a form inside their own box, only to find out it doesn’t work in the field. Make sure to complete inspections with your forms in order to ensure they don’t go awry.

  • 5. Don’t Do It Alone

Similar to number 4, many safety professionals end up in a scenario when an Audit or Inspection gets built in a bubble where no other departments have been consulted. This ends up in a pattern of iterative forms being created and the lack of being able to produce quality reporting.

Make sure to gather stakeholders from any departments who may need information from these Audits/Inspections. This may cause an initial delay in getting your inspection process started but will prevent future delays once the inspections begin.

Takeaway

Your inspection program is a huge key to the success or your business. Don’t take it for granted. Take the time to plan out your forms to make sure both workers and management get the most of out the data that is gathered.


If you think you may need help in planning out how to build your inspection checklist, we’re here for you! Contact us today to see what The Checker Software can do for you.

A Guide To Your Facility Walkthrough

Posted by Shawn Macpherson on Mon, Oct 22, 2018 @ 04:51 PM

 

facility walkthrough

The importance of a facility walkthrough is often regarded as something businesses, and employees should do on an optional basis, making it seem far less significant than it is. It’s important to understand the difference between a walkthrough, an inspection and an audit. Although the definition varies slightly by company, here are some general explanations of the terms:

  • Audit - a structured process whereby information is collected relating to the efficiency, effectiveness, and reliability of a company's total health and safety management system
  • Inspection - a formalized and properly documented process of identifying hazards in the workplace.
  • Walkthrough/walkaround - a worker or supervisor observing work taking place, inspecting the workplace, and discussing the safe performance of work with staff. The focus of a walkthrough should be positive, building team work and safety awareness rather than simply pointing out problems.

A walkthrough, also known as a walkaround or walkaround observation, allows businesses and their employees to understand better the work environment, its surroundings and the risks they are exposed to if not carefully instructed about how the work areas should be handled.

With The Checker Software, you can easily document everything from your walkthrough using our Observation Reporter feature. It’s simple, quick and will help you retain all of the information gathered during your walkthrough.

In most situations, when starting a walkthrough, you should always take into account the following steps:

Do a Pre-Inspection

While sometimes a pre-inspection may seem like going a little too far, it is necessary to make everybody understand what they should do when they find themselves in a particular area of the working facility.

This step is similar to a training exercise where the worker is taught what the focus should be on what, how and why the walkthrough is held. It's the step where everybody learns the concept and gets familiar with the working environment.

People get the chance to talk with one another and to listen to safety specialists on what the best practices of the specific field are and how they can better acknowledge them.

The Walkthrough Tour

When starting the walkthrough of the facility, be sure to limit the size of walkthrough groups. A limited number of people is more efficient when it comes to taking the tour. More often than not a single person may conduct the walkthrough on their own depending on the size of the facility.

In larger groups, people tend to lose their focus and get bored faster, due to the long waiting periods and the slow movement flow throughout the entire facility. Remember, less is more!

Point Out the Importance of the Facility

After finishing the walkthrough, be sure to emphasize the role this tour plays for the safety of each employee while entering the facility. Make oral bullet points (you can even ask people to write them down) about the key findings and elements that people have learned during the walkthrough.

Be sure to answer all the questions and offer all the necessary details required by each walkthrough participant. Information is King!

Draw Conclusions 

As the last step of a successful walkthrough, you will need to draw crystal clear conclusions that everyone will understand and remember. Ask the right questions and try to help everybody in finding the correct answers if they can't come up with it straight away.

Make the most important elements of the walkthrough stand out by starting short scrum sessions about them so they will stick in people's minds. 

Takeaway

By following these guidelines regarding the importance of the walkthrough, you will easily help people understand where the focus should be placed and what information is most important when conducting a walkthrough

Private vs. Public institutions - Why is there a double standard?

Posted by Shawn Macpherson on Mon, Oct 15, 2018 @ 01:00 PM

 

private vs. public

The eternal public vs. private sector debate has (for a long time actually) reached safety standards issues. Why do you ask? The answer is simple. The discussion starts off based on the premises that the private sector and private institutions in general, are not held to the same high standard municipalities (the public sector) are. So why is that?

Most of the times, private businesses are allowed to cut corners, or regulatory organizations look the other way when it comes to safety standards for their employees, for their buildings and the entire workplace in general.

On the other hand, when it comes to the public sector, municipalities are highly standardized, and there's no taking the easy road here. And nor should it be. When it comes to the safety of your employees, private or public, it does not matter. Safety is (or at least it should be!) universal for everybody, no matter the sector of work.

 

Transparency is important for municipalities

Municipalities are held to the highest possible standard and often scrutinized to ensure they are keeping their employees and facilities safe. However, this is not the case with the private sector, where it seems like the norms are looser. 

When dealing with the public, transparency is mandatory, because every contributor has the right to know where their tax dollars are going. But why shouldn’t private entities be as transparent as governmental institutions when it comes to the safety sector?

Shouldn't these numbers be available to everybody? Shouldn't all employees have access to see how much their employer is investing in the safety of the company's employees? 

We think that this is the way of the future because everybody deserves to work in a safe environment which is being checked out on a regular basis to make sure that all the latest safety standards are being implemented.

 

The public sector is one of the largest purchasers of The Checker books

Why is it that a large portion of our customers come from the public sector when the global tendency is to shift to the private sector? It means that although more and more private companies are being founded and starting activities that should be inspected, the number when it comes to implementing safety standards is not growing at the same pace.

 

Takeaway

Here, at The Checker, we offer professional services for both private and public entities, making our book the easiest to use, the most accurate and complete material on the subject available on the market.

We have been providing The Checker Checklist Books since 2000, contributing to more over 20 million successful inspections. If you're interested in taking your company to the latest safety standards in your field, or if you want to ask us for more details regarding our services, be sure to visit our official website, right here.

What Is A Circle Check?

Posted by Shawn Macpherson on Fri, Sep 28, 2018 @ 02:09 PM

 

circle check

The most common equipment defects are related to tires, wheels, brakes, and coupling devices. Together, they make up around 12% of all heavy machinery accidents. When an accident occurs, there is usually a loss of productivity, downtime, repairs, or even injury..

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance issued a report based on brake violations conducted in a single day on April 25th that stated:

  • 11,531 inspections were conducted in Canada and the USA
  • 1,595 trucks were pulled out of service for brake violations
  • 14.3% had ABS violations.

A proper and detailed inspection of the vehicle before its use will detect any defects. The Highway Safety Act stipulates that heavy-duty equipment needs a review every 24 hours.

What Is a Circle Check?

A circle check is a visual inspection, and requires a physical inspection of the vehicle, be it a truck, trailer, forklift, bulldozer, car, etc. As its name would suggest, the circle check requires the inspector to go around the vehicle and look and check for any signs of risk, damage, or malfunction. 

The operation should become an automatic and implicit element of your safety procedure. It is to be performed every time a vehicle or piece of heavy equipment will be put to use at the beginning of the day. Immediately report any problems or inconsistencies to the supervisor. Before the vehicle is used, the issues must be resolved.  

The purpose of one such circle check is to make sure that all principal components of the vehicle are in proper order and good working condition. It will also ensure that both the owner and the operator are informed about the situation and what repairs are needed. Lastly, this daily inspection will guarantee that there are no vehicles with significant problems operating on the road, keeping both operators and other civilians safe. 

Circle Check Administrative Tips

It is important to remember that ALL road vehicles used for business / commercial and not just road vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 4,500 kg/10,000 lbs or more are required to conduct regular circle checks. These include vehicles such as cement mixers, tank trucks, fire trucks, ambulances, snow removal trucks, vans, pickup trucks, cars, trailers, semi-trailers, road tractors, equipment transport vehicles, buses, tow trucks, etc. The rule also applies to two or more vehicles hitched together and where at least one has a GVWR of 4,500 kg or above. 

All of these vehicles are subject to this inspection, meaning that no driver can get behind the wheel before a circle check is complete. This inspection is usually carried out by the driver or another person designated by the driver. Whatever the case, the vehicle operator will be held accountable. 

If the inspection is carried out by a different person, the operator needs to sign the report and make sure that the circle check is valid. Drivers can also refuse to accept the statement issued by another person, at which time they will have to perform their test and fill out a report. 

The owner's responsibility here is to maintain these vehicles in excellent condition, to repair and report defects, and to obtain these circle check reports from the operator. If there are any minor defects detected, the owner has 48 hours to remedy them. Major faults, on the other hand, require all necessary repairs made before that vehicle is used. 

The Checker Software will allow you or your personnel to perform these circle checks and all sorts of other safety inspections, audits, and assessments on mobile devices - providing you with numerous advantages and efficiencies. For more information about this software, feel free to check our website or contact us directly.

What Is Your Safety Stack?

Posted by Shawn Macpherson on Mon, Sep 10, 2018 @ 09:41 AM

 

what is your safety stack

Do you know what your Safety Stack is? If the answer to this question is No, then good, because a Safety Stack really isn’t a term that exists but we think it should. In order to tell you  what it is and how it works, the best place to start is to talk about the concept of a technology stack as a whole.

In short, a technology stack, or more commonly known as a tech stack, is a combination of software and various programming languages that are used to create a web or mobile application. A tech stack is like building a skyscraper. You don't start with the fountain in the lobby or the furniture in the rooms. You start at the very bottom, with the foundation and girders to hang everything else on. The tech stack is the skeleton on which everything else is built. 

In more technical terms, one such stack represents all of the underlying elements of a web or mobile application. These include features such as frameworks, languages being used, as well as the software products that everything else relies on. 

If we were to look at a Marketing Technology Stack, for instance, we will see a variety of tech-based tools that are used in combination so as to efficiently execute all sorts of marketing activities across multiple channels.

Depending on the size and needs of a business, its marketing tech stack can be comprised of a variety of tools that can span over multiple departments. One such stack can include such tools like Campaign Monitor for its email marketing platform, Hootsuite for social media, Google Analytics as its analytics tool, and Hubspot for its customer relationship management (CRM). All of these, or a similar combination, are considered a company’s marketing tech stack. And while each tool performs brilliantly at their respective task, together they make an excellent framework for a business to perform all of its marketing activities.  

The Safety Stack

A safety stack, on the other hand, is like the marketing tech stack, mentioned above, but focusing specifically on the tools used to support safety in the workplace. Here, a business could use SAP for its maintenance, Gurock for quality assurance, Process MAP for sustainability, and the The Checker Pro for inspections, assessments, and audits.

The Checker Pro is an audit/inspection management system framework and file structure that allows users to organize, standardize, and utilize all aspects of their inspection program. 

But for the software to work, business processes need to be in place first. Likewise, the most common gap that arises within organizations is between field audits and inspection software. Luckily, however, the Checker Pro manages to bridge that gap by providing the capability to configure and design forms to perfectly suit your business processes and needs.

Because of its high degree of flexibility regarding configurations, The Checker Software allows every user to personalize it according to their needs or those of the organization they work for. In short, The Checker Software will help you improve safety, stay compliant with all health and safety regulations, and reduce costs, in the process. For more details on the system, please feel free to visit our website or contact us directly.
