The adage of working on the business versus working in the business is sometimes easier said than done. Particularly in high-risk industries, where often the skills required to do the job require the business owner to be all hands on deck with their staff.
In recent years, the tech world has sought to make life easier for businesses by creating easier ways to manage day-to-day operations. Business owners can take a step back and look at how the business is tracking and what challenges and opportunities arise through job management software tools.
This article looks into JGID’s job management software, particularly the Equipment Registers feature, and how it allows you to get real-time notifications of when inspections are due, staff qualifications are due to expire and much more.
What is an Equipment Register?
An equipment register is a critical element to a business as it helps to keep track of the assets a business uses to perform its tasks and provides important details like purchase date, inspections, compliance and quality control. But it doesn’t stop there.
Imagine running a high-risk industry business like rope access where you don’t have an eagle-eye view of your equipment and what stage of the life cycle it is, whether it needs repairing, or whether it meets compliance and quality control standards. It could be problematic for your business but potentially dangerous to staff and the sites you work on.
Why You Should Use an Equipment Register
Equipment is an asset, but many businesses fail to utilise their assets to their potential. Sometimes, businesses rely on handwriting or even less reliable methods, which exposes these businesses to compliance and inspection risks but can also inadvertently impact other areas of the business. Unfortunately, this way of working could be more efficient and reliable – especially when customer service plays a big role in any type of work.
Using an equipment register – particularly an online tool allows you to have a snapshot of your assets for accounting and taxation purposes and helps with other regulatory requirements a business must adhere to remain compliant in their industries.
Compliance, Quality Control and Staff
Compliance is critical to any high-risk industry, from rope access to arborists and height safety specialists, due to the extreme danger and risks these types of businesses pose.
Equipment registers help mitigate compliance risks, quality issues, due dates and inspections. Compliant businesses follow industry regulations and rules and build trust as a brand in the marketplace.
Staff are also an asset to any business, so like any asset, accreditations renewal dates and other relevant information to ensure your staff are fully compliant to work within the industry is critical to know.
Job management software comes into its own by helping you store all of this information in one central location that does the heavy lifting for you when you need it: no more overdue compliance notices or lapsed accreditations. You can work proactively rather than reactively.
