Safetime Electronic Scafftags

Rigorous and regular inspection is essential to maintaining safety systems on site. Traditionally sites have used paper-based systems like scafftags to track scaffold inspections, but more efficient electronic alternatives are increasingly being sought.

See the examples below for how one company achieved this:

  • The scaffolding company now uses ‘Safetime’, which is an electronic version of scafftags.
  • ‘Safetime’ has a countdown system which shows the number of days until the next inspection is required, providing a very visual display of the status of inspections.
  • A main benefit is that information on each ‘Safetime’ device can be accessed remotely, allowing the main contractor to see the status of each scaffolding installation and the scaffolding company to monitor the status of inspection from the office.
  • The information available includes the time the inspection was done and therefore if several inspections are being done concurrently it shows the amount of time spent on each inspection and hence if inadequate time is being spent on the inspections.
