Why Do You Need to Conduct Facility Inspections?

Storage warehouse inspection

Everyone is responsible for the safety and well-being of those who work in the facilities they oversee. A crucial part of this responsibility is identifying potential hazards and taking steps to mitigate them. Facility inspections are one way to identify potential hazards.



In warehouses and manufacturing facilities, Facility managers can also use inspections to identify areas where there may be risks of forklift accidents or other dangers.

Regular inspections can also help improve communication between managers and workers, as it allows managers to address concerns and answer questions. In addition, inspections can help to identify potential problems before they become serious, saving both time and money in the long run.

Facility inspection in a warehouse typically focuses on safety hazards, such as trip hazards or blocked exits. Facility inspections can also help identify areas where efficiency can be improved, such as streamlining the flow of traffic in a warehouse.  Facility inspection in manufacturing, on the other hand, usually focuses on quality control and process optimization.


How Frequently Should You Inspect Your Facility?

The answer depends on the facility type and the risk level. In general, warehouses and manufacturing facilities should be inspected regularly – at least once per month. However, more frequent inspections may be necessary if there are high levels of traffic or hazardous materials present.

By contrast, offices and retail stores typically don’t need to be inspected as often since there is less potential for accidents or damage. At a minimum, these facilities should be inspected once per quarter.

Of course, it’s always best to err on the side of caution – if you have any concerns about your facility, it’s always best to contact a professional for an assessment.


The Components of a Facility Inspection Checklist

Doors and doorways / Floors and floor coverings / Walls and ceilings / Stairs and railings / Windows and window coverings / Electrical outlets and switches / Emergency equipment / Plumbing fixtures

Following a comprehensive inspection checklist can help keep your facility in good condition and avoid costly repairs or downtime.
