Improve Rig Safety and Maintenance Using Technology
Rig safety and maintenance can be daunting without the proper tools and equipment. Both your drilling crew and your rig need to be in tip-top shape in order for you to have a thriving business. This is why you must always prioritize safety and maintenance in the field, including keeping your drilling equipment clean and working good as new.
How Technology Helps You
Technology offers many useful ways to help you run your business. Foremost of which is it helps you maintain safety by providing you with mobile safety checklists that you can use to make sure that your workplace and equipment meet the necessary standards. Include the requirements in your regular maintenance schedule to ensure that you take care of items that need to be checked on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis.
For instance, greasing the rig should be done on a daily basis. Your mobile safety checklist should give you a complete list of parts that need to be greased and the actual greasing process provides the perfect opportunity for you and your workers to run a top to bottom check of your rig’s parts. This way, you are alerted when some areas require further attention. This usually occurs during the actual inspection and greasing.
Why Use Mobile Safety and Maintenance Checklists?
You can choose to be completely thorough with your safety and maintenance checklists. Formitize app enables you to create mobile safety checklists that allow you to inspect your rig from top to bottom so you can rest in the assurance that every part of your rig is accounted for. This will help you stay on top of the game as you check every nook and cranny while filling out your mobile safety checklist in the process.
The best part about using mobile safety checklists and mobile forms in general is that you store every data collected in the “cloud” for you to review and revisit at a later date. This leaves very little room for errors as every information is carefully noted and is available for search anytime, anywhere. This is vital to any rig operation because you can address any anomaly spotted during the inspection and provide room for improvement for those items that are not that urgent.
Mobile safety checklists ensure that you’re always on top of things in your rig, which allows you to avoid emergency situations and provides opportunities for you to improve your workplace to increase safety and security.
