Pendrich Height Services - Book In/Out

The Challenge

Based in Scotland, Pendrich Height Services is one of the UK’s leading height access companies.

Their onsite equipment stores has over 3,000 pieces of equipment including ladders, harnesses, lifting gear and electrical assets.

It was proving to be a difficult process managing the booking out of equipment to clients and controlling its location and inspection status using a paper based system.

Using a paper based log system, the Stores Manager was having to write all of the relevant equipment information at the store and then manually input the data into a spreadsheet back at the office.

When equipment failed to return to the store, it was difficult to pinpoint the client who had last used it due to the unreliability of the system.

With no reliable system in place, Pendrich needed to find a better solution.


The Solution

Safetrak Book In/Out – Pendrich turned to Safetrak®, part of the Brady Corporation’s SFID Division (Safety, Facilities and Identification).

Safetrak is the digital system to help plan, inspect and report equipment inspections and maintenance.

Customised to their requirements, the company invested in the Safetrak Book In/Out application for ladders, harnesses, lifting and electrical assets. The Book In/Out applications allows equipment to be assigned electronically from stores to a particular user. The system also guides the operator through a series of checks to help ensure equipment booked out from stores is fit for use and informs operators when the next inspection date is due.

Each piece of equipment was issued an RFID tag which is scanned when leaving and returning to the stores. When scanned all information relating to that particular asset (the next inspection date, who has booked out the equipment and its location) is automatically updated onto the Safetrak system on the stores computer. The Stores Manager can access detailed reports at the touch of a button and share access to other stakeholders.
