Earthquakes, tremors, and seismic activity can cause loss of life, property damage, and large-scale destruction of everything within an affected area. Seismic inspections help manage and reduce the potential impact on infrastructure and buildings and form a crucial part of post-seismic activity response and remediation.
Let’s look at the following points in our discussion:
- What do Seismic inspections generally address?
- What makes them so vital to businesses and project teams?
- How does Fielda’s no-code data collection platform ease the process of your Seismic inspections?
What Inspections Include: Seismic inspections are conducted on project sites, buildings, and property based on the varying seismicity level of the region, usually in four categories – shallow, low, moderate, or high. Inspectors gather information on various elements such as the building or structure type and specifications and may include notes on mechanical, electric, communication, structural data points. In addition, inspectors lookout for building plan irregularities, vertical irregularity, risks like liquefaction and landslides, soil type, exterior falling hazards like unbraced chimneys, heavy cladding, etc.
What makes them so vital is that earthquake-prone zones, especially, need frequent and meticulous inspections. If they aren’t carried out properly, the result can be poorly maintained infrastructure with significant physical and financial loss when tremors occur. Even post-seismic activity inspections help quickly assess the damage, document repairs needed, and inform response teams on the action. Most importantly, they also act as a critical input into future preparedness to mitigate risks and potential loss.
How Fielda helps streamline Inspection Checklists: With Fielda, Inspectors can make collaboration much simpler with the seamless flow of information between departments. Fielda’s Seismic inspection checklist makes the process faster and more efficient. Depending on the level of risk, the type of property and specifications of the sites, forms and fields can be modified and built into customizable workflows.
Capture: Collect Seismic inspection data rapidly and create a response and remediation plans.
Review: Take stock of task status and quickly review action items in re-inspections.
Comply: Avoid penalties, reduce risk and achieve absolute compliance with real-time data.
