Railroad Track Maintenance: Turnout Inspection Record Mobile App
The Railroad Track Maintenance: Turnout Inspection Record Mobile App is a must-have app for any inspector of railway turnouts.
How does it work?
When you are out there conducting a visual walking inspection of the turnouts you do not want to be juggling a clipboard, pen and paper -- keep all the information you need right on your Smartphone, tablet or Android device. Ensure everyone traveling the railways is safe by electronically capturing railway turnout inspection information.
The app includes entry for track inspector’s name, track name or number for identifying track, turnout identification (turnout number), and inspection date. Additional sections are provided for the major components of the turnout such as ties, switches, frogs and the switch mechanism, and guard rails, as well as additional required data, such as measurements and general items.
Comply with track structure safety requirements for rail transit systems. Simply pull this form up on your mobile device at the rail yard while you conduct your inspection, review the prior certificate of inspection, or note any rail defects, worn or chipped switch points or other maintenance red flags.
The form can be electronically signed by the inspector, then saved securely to the GoCanvas Cloud. Generate a PDF form to email to the required federal railroad officials or other train safety officials. All information can be accessed via a Smartphone or other mobile devices, as well as by a personal computer.
