Rain and storms often affect engineering sites, which can adversely impact operations. Rain event inspection helps ascertain the nature and extent of damage caused and prepare a remediation plan. In this post, we will discuss the following:

  • What does a rain event inspection cover?
  • What makes these inspections important to engineering companies and site supervisors?
  • How does Fielda enable inspectors to conduct rain event inspections hassle-free?

What does a rain event inspection include: In a rain event inspection, site inspectors collect details about the construction project, such as site size in terms of current and total project Distributed Soil Area (DSA), percentage of work completion, level of site compliance, etc. They also include observations about the weather, wind conditions, last rain occurrence, and expected precipitation. They examine drainage discharge locations, check if there is water flowing in any of these areas, whether they contain soil erosion sediments, and collect the discharge samples. They look for odor, coloration, suspended materials, and pollutants in the water and note their findings. Inspectors additionally conduct similar audits of de-silting basins and stormwater storage. 

What makes these inspections vital on construction sites: Engineering work is governed by many regulatory requirements. These are designed to ensure workers’ safety and manage the environmental impact. They also allow the site to be in optimum condition for efficient operations. Rain event inspections help spot issues like flowing water, erosion, pollution, and contaminants and pre-empt the damage they can cause to the site and surrounding areas. In addition, these inspections help control negative impacts on the site and help lower maintenance and construction costs through timely action. 

How Fielda helps improve rain event inspections: During rain event inspections, inspectors document several details and often need to add photographs, video, or other evidence documents to bolster their reports. Fielda helps inspectors collect data dynamically through its customizable checklists. In addition, site inspectors can add photographs and videos seamlessly from their mobile devices at one go, making field data collection a simple and fast process. Fielda also helps inspectors collaborate with other operational teams through its custom workflow management function for rapid action and follow-ups.
