Inspections Completed
Fall protection is the most frequently cited violation by HSE

You need eyes on your entire fleet. At all times.

Having uninspected or out-of-date operational equipment is not an option for a fire brigade. You need to know where all your equipment is, whether it’s battle-ready and whether it needs replacing.

Just one faulty breathing apparatus can mean hefty fines— and even lost lives.

There’s more than your reputation at stake every time you fail an audit or can’t produce the paperwork indicating your operational equipment is safe-to-use.

“The time Papertrail saves us is just phenomenal.
We were recording vital information and data onto a spreadsheet.That spreadsheet was getting copied to a PDF which was getting uploaded onto one system and then filed in another system, across all three sorts of inspections. It just took forever.”
