4 Little Changes That’ll
Make a Big Difference with Your Safety Inspections

Every jobsite is different. There are different procedures for inspections for different sites. There are different procedures even for different areas in one jobsite. Having to think of everything can be overwhelming, but we want to ease some of that. Here are 4 small changes that’ll make a big difference with your safety inspections.

Ditch the pen and paper, go digital!

Using mobile applications like Safety Reports Inspection app can definitely ease the pressure that comes with safety inspections. When using a mobile safety app, the tedious task of filling out hours of reports is cut in half. With our inspection app, you can send those reports before you even leave the site. This helps with the overall accuracy of those reports. Instead of having to type up and have to recall little details, you are doing it right then and there creating less work. And you really save. Beyond saving the hours typing up reports, you save money on paper, and with it being more accurate and detailed, you save more lives.

Narrow your focus, inspect singular areas

An inspector could potentially have one entire job site to do and that can be very overwhelming. One trick is, instead of worrying about jobsite as a whole, divide it into sections, that way when inspecting, you can examine more thoroughly and ease the stress at looking at everything as a whole.

Multiple eyes are better than 2

When one person has to do an entire jobsite by themselves, it can be very overwhelming and things can get missed. Having a partner when doing these audits can help improve the work load and overall safety. By splitting up a jobsite, each safety professional can take the time needed to give the most accurate and detailed inspection. There are only so many hours in the day, so, when doing safety audits, you only have a small window to do everything you need to do.

Stay up-to-date on safety standards

As times change and technology changes, so do safety standards. Staying up to date on regulatory standards will not only improve your ability to identify hazards, but it will also give you the confidence to complete your inspections as thoroughly as possible. Safety Reports’ checklists include references to regulatory standards and we also provide links to the standards. We continuously update our checklists to the latest standards giving you the peace of mind knowing you are always up to date!


Over the years, safety inspections have been continuing to evolve as we do. Continuing to update and refresh yourself on new techniques and tricks will greatly benefit your knowledge in the safety industry. Safety Inspections are vital, and with being so important, it can be overwhelming, however using these techniques or others like these, can ease the stress.
