Digital Building Inspection Post COVID

Building inspection big and small can now follow guidelines to follow for best practice to optimise the worker safety. Following the AS/NZS 3666 standard series, it can for example be important to properly flush out systems and get the building inspection adequately prepared for returning workers. This is not only the case for workers in fully finished buildings, but those still in the construction process too. Standards Australia mention the need for those buildings standing empty during lockdown especially to be properly prepared and safely flushed out. Several dangers such as mould, reduced air quality, microbial growth and corrosion in water systems await those that return to work unless action is taken. Due to the extended period of vacancy, systems being put into hibernation can sometimes acquire such unwanted side-effects.

ISO/TS 26030 and Paperless Food Chain Responsibility

ISO/TS 26030 outlines contribution possibilities for sustainable development spanning local laws, stakeholder expectations and larger regulations. Organisations and businesses such as farms, cooperatives, retailers, wholesalers, food companies or processors can all develop socially responsible and sustainable activities and operations, no matter their location or size. ISO Manager Sandrine Espeillac, head of the committee that developed the guidance noted that ISO/TS 26030 will “have a positive impact on society as a whole” and that it helps organisations to “contribute to many of the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals”. In light of ISO/TS 26030 being released to the global food industry, it is also important to note the requirements that modern assessment and monitoring of socially responsible activities require top inspection methods. For this many organisations and businesses are choosing to pair ISO/TS 26030 with paperless solutions.

Food inspection often results in a lot of paperwork, for example, data entry, scheduling, reporting and manual follow-up. For years information has been gathered using paper and clipboards, with the data being catalogued once returning to the office. It works, but it’s inefficient… Could the introduction of data collection via a mobile device in partnership with automation be the answer? With countless food inspections required per Local Council, could Environmental Health Officers’ jobs be made easier, more transparent with improved control and accountability, all while reducing costs, saving time and improving reporting capabilities? The answer is yes, and it is quite an easy process too.
