Say goodbye to collecting field data on paper and transcribing into Excel or Word. 1Source Safety and Health has released SMARTouch. SMARTouch provides the power to conduct, manage and maintain ergonomic assessments, asbestos and lead in paint surveys and indoor air quality assessments all within one comprehensive software program with a touch. The software runs on any computer; however, for portability during field surveys, it runs on a Tablet PC with Touch Smart screen technology. Basically, you can complete a survey thru report development without lifting a pen or pencil.
Touch screen technology provides the user with drop down windows to effectively navigate through the various selections while conducting a survey or assessment. For example, drop down windows in the SMARTouch Asbestos module are pre-filled with locations (wall, floor, pipe chase etc.), material types (mastic, pipe hangers, Transite etc), space type (boiler room, classroom, hallway, etc), plus two additional level of descriptions to clearly identify the material. Upon completion of selecting the appropriate choices from the drop downs (which takes about 15 seconds,) the software develops a reference code for similar materials within the same building. This code becomes a critical link for sampling results and remediation costs by material type. The SMARTouch Lead module is similar in design to the Asbestos module as these surveys are often conducted together.
The SMARTouch Indoor Air Quality module is designed so the user can conduct both investigative or proactive surveys and walkthrough visual assessments using the user friendly and intuitive logic that has been built into the software. This module has six standard reports; however, report formats can be customized to meet any requirements.
The SMARTouch Ergonomics module is uniquely designed to assess ergonomic conditions in the office environment by evaluating working conditions, seating, monitor placement, keyboard/input devices, workstation, accessories and more. As with the other modules, data collection is a matter of moving from tab to tab, clicking on drop downs, or tapping on a field. At the end of the assessment, simply connect to a printer, click on print report and you are finished.
Multi-tasking is designed into SMARTouch. You can conduct a full conditions assessment of asbestos, lead-in-paint and indoor air quality in an area including sampling data without the need to look for various forms
