Step by Step: Inspection Schedule of Level A Suits
Level A Suits provide total encapsulation in hazardous environments where the threat of eye, skin or respiratory damage is present. Such a critical piece of equipment requires a well managed maintenance schedule. With D4H™ DECISIONS Equipment Management, you are provided with an integrated inspections module which can track the maintenance schedule of all your Level A Suits.
Step 1: Getting Started
To access to the Inspections Module, navigate from Logistics -> Equipment, and choose the Inspections tab. Here you will be met with the list of current inspection you have set up.
NOTE: Any inspections that are due will also appear on the Dashboard.
Step 2: Creating a New Inspection
To create a new inspection, choose Add Inspection on the top right corner of the page and enter the Inspection Title. When complete, choose the inspection from the list and choose to Update Details. You can now enter the details of the inspection.
Here you can enter different details such as:
-The instructions/steps needed to complete the inspection
-How often the inspection is required
-How long before the inspection is due do you wish to be reminded
-Whether or not failing to complete the inspection on time will result in the item being marked as out-of-service
Beneath this you will enter the criteria for the kind(s) of item you wish to be included in the inspection, and whether or not you want to filter this inspection by location. In instance, I chose to include all Level Suits of sizes XL, XXL and XXXL, that were located anywhere within my team’s account.
Step 3: Completing the Inspections for the First Time
Once the inspection has been setup, you will be met with a list of all the include items and they will all be set as due today. Here you will be required to mark each item as completed and changed the completed date to the last time they passed their annual inspection. This allows the system to auto-calculate when the next inspection will be due.
Step 4: Complete Inspections
When an inspection is due, click into it and you will be met with the following page that contains a list of all the Level A suits that are due the inspection, listed under their location.
When conducting the inspection, you have 5 different options available to mark the result:
1.) Operational-indicates the inspection has been completed and the item is in working order.
2.) Out of Service-indicates he item is not in working order and is marked as Out of Service. This may or may not be repairable.
3.) Monitor Item-could be for an item that is working order but might not be working as you had expected so you wish to keep an eye on it.
4.) Repair Required-The item needs a repair but is not necessarily out of service. When creating the repair you will prompted about whether it is to remain in-service or not.
5.) Lost-tems that are nowhere to be found when the inspection is being conducted.
