If you’re reading this, you probably have a subscription to some type of product or service. Whether you get groceries shipped to your house each week, binge watch tv shows on Netflix, or discover new music through a streaming app, you’ve used a subscription service to get what you need—quickly and conveniently.
While these services are common for consumer goods, they’re more of an insider secret in the safety industry. However, the safety industry is the very place where these services can make the largest impact.
Most companies rely on different types of equipment to keep employees safe on the job. From basic PPE like hardhats and gloves to more advanced devices like gas detectors, everything has a life span and your company is responsible for monitoring it. Unfortunately, it’s easy to assume that these items will continue to perform as expected and protect your workers day in and day out without giving them much thought.
Luckily, subscription services provide a simple solution. Subscription services reduce the opportunity for human error by automating common orders or processes for you. For example, if a worker calibrates a gas detector but doesn’t tell anyone that the gas cylinder is low, the next worker might not be able to calibrate their monitor. This is a small error that can have big consequences. A subscription to automatically replace calibration gas when cylinders are running low could easily solve this problem – without consuming your time to monitor the gas levels or releasing POs.
Read on to learn five reasons why you should consider subscription services for your safety needs:
Subscription services are common in our personal lives, so now it’s time to start using them to save lives at work. Having the right gas detectors—and keeping them working properly—is the first step.
Since 2002, Industrial Scientific has offered iNet Exchange, a subscription service that covers gas detectors, shipping, calibration gas, docking stations, training, data analytics, and more. With iNet Exchange, you always have the monitors you need, right when you need them.
Every time you dock your monitors, we review the performance of the monitor, sensors, the circuit board, the microprocessors, and the pump. You can schedule bump tests, calibrate your monitors and access your report history and certificates anytime you need. We’ll even tell you whether a monitor needs to be replaced before it fails and we’ll automatically send you a new one. Before you know it, an iNet Exchange box is on your doorstep with a new unit, so you can spend more time managing your safety program and less time repairing gas detectors or ordering replacements.
