Why North America’s Aging Pipeline Networks Need mInspections

North America’s extensive pipeline infrastructure is rapidly aging, with many networks now several decades old. A large number were installed more than 50 years ago or more. These pipeline networks need increasing repair and maintenance as they become more prone to failure the older they get.

Mobile safety inspections using connected worker technology provide critical early warnings for pipeline maintenance and safety compliance processes. Conducting inspections with handheld digital devices and wearables improves process visibility, data collection, compliance, and decision making.

This whitepaper will examine the safety and environmental problems North American pipeline companies confront every day. We’ll focus on the operational and safety inspection process, particularly on why it is proving inadequate for so many organizations. It will also introduce a digital solution these companies can use today to reduce potential dangers while boosting daily inspection efficiency and accuracy.

Mobile inspections help pipeline companies to:

  • Eliminate paper and clipboards 
  • Log data in real-time
  • Display and enter operations data across the corporate network
  • Respond to alerts without having to return to the office or a PC
