NDT Global, headquartered in Dublin, is a prominent provider of data analysis and integrity assessment services for energy infrastructure assets. With their specialization in ultrasonic inspection technologies such as Pulse Echo, Pitch-and-Catch, and Phased Array, as well as Acoustic Resonance (ART Scan) methodologies, NDT Global is committed to ensuring the safety and longevity of energy sector infrastructure assets.
However, their JHA process, which is crucial for identifying potential hazards during inspections and developing preventive measures to overcome those hazards, was fully manual and paper-based. To address this issue, they developed a progressive web application using a low-code development platform that enables team collaboration and accessibility from anywhere in the field.

The manual and paper-based JHA process used by NDT Global was time-consuming and resulted in a slower inspection process. The lack of collaboration among team members made it difficult to identify and mitigate potential hazards, which could have serious consequences for the safety of NDT Global’s technicians and the energy infrastructure assets they inspect.
To address these challenges, NDT Global needed a digital solution that would provide a centralized platform for JHA that could be accessed by all team members, from anywhere in the field. The development of a progressive web application using a low-code development platform provided a solution that could be quickly implemented without the need for extensive technical knowledge.
The new application allowed NDT Global’s field technicians to easily identify job-based hazards, create project-based dynamic checklists, and develop preventive measures to overcome those hazards. Additionally, the application provided location tracking of users, digital signing of the JHA process, and role-based security for better data protection.
Overall, the new JHA application addressed NDT Global’s need for a more efficient, collaborative, and accessible JHA process that would help ensure the safety and longevity of energy sector infrastructure assets.
