Introduction to Site Inspection Checklist:

Site Inspection Checklist - Process Street

This site inspection checklist is geared toward the formal inspection of construction sites to provide the high standards set across the industry are being met

You can run this site inspection checklist every time you, as an inspector, visit a construction site to assess adherence to safety and operating standards. 

Each task within this checklist is geared to a different segment of items to be checked. Within each task are further details to be checked and monitored. 

We've provided simple Yes/No checklist options for each item which needs to be checked along with upload fields to provide evidence of what you're checking. You can upload photos or files in these fields depending on what you're looking to measure. 

If you add this to your Process Street account then you can edit the template to suit your specific needs, adding form fields and upload fields wherever you please. 

One of the most important aspects of running inspections is performing them on a regular basis and accurately reporting and documenting how they have been run and who by. In Process Street, this is done automatically every time you run a checklist. 

In the template overview tab, you will see a table with drag and drop columns which records the data for each checklist as a separate spreadsheet row. If you need to compile all your site inspections to present them then you can export the data from the overview tab as a CSV file. This will contain a record of the checklists you have run along with all the results of the checklists.

Site inspections are a vital part of making sure industry rules and regulations are adhered to. Employ this checklist to ease the process and raise standards.
