Heavy Equipment Inspections

Equipment Inspections are Key for Construction Equipment Maintenance Safety

A critical part of your field work involves heavy equipment inspections to ensure safe equipment performance and to identify hazards or maintenance and repair needs. You need a construction safety software that simplifies and modernizes your inspection workflows.

Part of the Safety & Compliance feature, Tenna’s Inspections functionality provides a simple and convenient way to complete and submit inspection forms in the field on the Tenna App within your equipment management system. Digital inspections replace manual, paper-based methods making it easier and more efficient for your field team to perform. This convenience results in a higher likelihood of inspection completion more frequently. Eliminating paper and processing inspection reports digitally reduces risk of loss or damage and improves recording and processing so that safety or performance concerns are communicated to the right people automatically and are addressed in a timely manner.

Tenna offers equipment inspections for heavy and mid-sized equipment as well as DVIR for vehicles to facilitate simpler inspection completion via mobile app and capture records digitally.
