What is a First-Aid Inspection App?

A first-aid inspection app is a tool used by first-aiders and appointed persons when conducting periodic first-aid inspections to ensure that all first-aid kits and equipment are ready to use. When there’s no time to spare for checking first-aid kits during an emergency, first-aid inspection apps help make sure that inspections are conducted proactively.

Uses

First-aid inspection apps allow organizations do the following effectively:

Know when and what to inspect

In order to conduct proper periodic inspections, safety officers, first-aiders, or appointed persons must first know when and what to inspect. With a first-aid inspection app, authorized persons can opt to receive automated notifications when first-aid inspections are due and have inspection checklists readily available.

Ensure compliance

With scheduled periodic inspections of first-aid kits, supplies, and equipment, employers and managers can be proactive in ensuring that all first-aid items, as required by regulations, are well stocked and in good condition, always ready for immediate use in case of emergency.

Simplify reporting

To comply with the mandated list of first-aid items, the contents of first-aid kits should be restocked or replenished ideally every after use or as determined during first-aid inspections. Anytime a first-aid inspection is conducted, a report is made to record any actions taken or observations made concerning the first-aid kits or supplies. With automated reporting and recordkeeping, authorized persons can keep track of first-aid inspections and retrieve information when needed.

Make sure that inspections are completed on time

First-aid kits are only useful when they are available, well-stocked in supplies, and the equipment they contain is working when they are needed. Proactive inspections that are scheduled with notifications on due dates will help ensure that checks are not missed and that first-aid kits and contents comply with regulations.

Receive updates on first-aid kit changes or replenishment of supplies

With a first-aid inspection app’s automated reporting and recordkeeping features, there will be no more time wasted manually checking if supplies were restocked and if tools are still working. All inspection reports should be found on the app and only accessible to authorized personnel.

Reinforce safety practices in the workplace

More than the periodic inspection of first-aid kits, a holistic first-aid inspection app can be used to conduct other safety checks and internal audits. Through the help of safety inspection checklists and templates, safety officers and operations supervisors can help reinforce safety practices that are at par with industry standards.
