Lyndon Scaffolding reach over 100,000 SMART Inspector App inspections

The country’s largest independent and highly respected scaffolding firm – Lyndon Scaffolding Plc – has now carried out more than 100,000 scaffold inspections using SMART Scaffolder’s award-winning SMART Inspector app.

The firm have been using SMART Inspector since February 2017 and their scaffold inspectors have now carried out more than 100,000 weekly scaffold inspections on sites across the country, from remote Scottish glens, like Orchy Viaduct in Oban, to the heart of the capital, on iconic jobs like Coal Drops Yard at King’s Cross, and everywhere in between.

Developed in partnership with Lyndon, this breakthrough software improves and streamlines their 100’s of weekly scaffold inspections – legally required by the 2005 Work at Height Regulations – doing away with a burdensome, time-consuming, and flawed paper record system. 

Lyndon Scaffolding CEO, Rob Lynch said: “We are more than happy with the inspection app, which has not only improved the quality of our reports but also transformed the efficiency, leading to better and safer scaffolds.”

Ian Chambers, Sales & Marketing Director at SMART Scaffolder, added: “To have expert clients of the ilk and scale of Lyndon as development partners of our SMART Inspector app has been invaluable to its development and commercial success! We have also had keen interest from many main contractors, house builders and the Health & Safety fraternity.

“Across the UK, we have already seen more than 200,000 scaffold inspections signed off on our SMART Inspector app! More and more customers are coming on line and recognising the many benefits to their scaffolding businesses, regardless of size. Utilising mobile and cloud technology to help scaffolding firms streamline, speed up, improve safety and go paperless is not just in the future, it’s now.” said Chambers.

SMART Inspector is a commercial app available for all scaffolders to download and try out! It’s specifically designed to make the entire inspection process better, faster, and simpler. Providing higher quality inspections, more reliable record keeping and an auditable proof of compliance frees up time for Supervisors and Contract Managers to get on with their work whilst investing in improved site safety. 

SMART Inspector makes scheduling, conducting and reporting on scaffold inspections simple and efficient with an Apple or Android phone or tablet. The SMART Inspector app really comes into its own when used in conjunction with its sister app called ‘SMART Handovers’ which tracks your scaffolds from the time the digital handover form is signed until they are decommissioned. Photos and signatures are captured digitally and any extra hire is tracked.

An enhanced and updated Version 4.0 of SMART Inspector is available for free trials now via: www.smartscaffolder.com
