The new Emergency Equipment Tag from Brady increases inspection efficiency while also improving safety and compliance.
Increase inspection efficiency
The Emergency Equipment Tag includes a practical holder and inserts. The holder can easily be attached to a wide range of emergency equipment, including fire extinguishers, first aid kits and spill kits. The insert can include inspection records and information on who to contact after use of the emergency equipment. The tag can easily be combined with the Safetrak equipment inspection software to facilitate inspection planning and auto-generate reports on inspection completion.
Authorised inspectors will be able to add the date of their inspection and their signature on the tag’s insert attached to the equipment. If the equipment does not pass the weekly check, the insert must be removed, which leaves a clear ‘inspection required’-message on the empty holder. This will inform employees to use other emergency equipment and should prompt action for replacement.
Improved legal compliance
European Directive 2009/104/EC states that employers must make the necessary arrangements to ensure the safety and health of workers. This includes regular periodical emergency equipment inspection by a relevant person and documented inspection records. The inspection dates and signatures offer the required records to demonstrate compliance with the directive.
