    Inspection Scoring

    Users can weight each item of an inspection checklist so that different inspection items can be weighted more or less heavily in achieving compliance.

    Within the System Functions area of IndustrySafe, IndustrySafe System Administrators can assign points to each item in an inspection checklist and a percentage to each checklist item's status value (i.e. compliance and non-compliance). By default, the points field will be set to 100 for all checklist items and the percentage field will be set to 100% for status values that are in compliance and 0% for all other status values.

    Assigning Points to Checklist Items
    To assign points to Checklist Items, complete the following steps:

    • Open the System Functions module by selecting the System Functions wrench at the top of screen.
    • On the horizontal menu, select Set Up > Edit Inspection Checklists.
    • Select the Category and Checklist that you wish to edit.
    • Enter your desired number of points for each checklist item.
    • Click the Save Button.
    • If all data is in a valid format, the successful save message will appear.

    Assigning Percentages to Checklist Item Status Values
    To assign percentages to Checklist Item Status Values, complete the following steps:

    • Open the System Functions module by selecting the System Functions wrench at the top of screen.
    • On the horizontal menu, select Set Up > Edit Forms.
    • Select Inspections for the Recording Form and Inspection Checklist for the Section.
    • Select the link next to the Status field.
    • Enter your desired percentage for each Status Value. When typing in the percentage of a status value, do not use the percent symbol (%). For example, if you would like to assign a status value a percentage of thirty percent, simply type in 30, instead of 30%.
    • Select the Save Button.
    • If all data is in a valid format, the successful save message will appear.

    Inspection Scoring
    The system calculates an individual compliance score for each checklist item by multiplying an item's number of points by the percentage assigned to its status value. For example, the compliance score for an item with a status value percentage of 30% that has been assigned 100 points is 30.

    The total compliance score for an inspection is calculated by adding up each individual compliance score and dividing by the number of total points that can be achieved. Inspection checklist items with a status value of NA (Not Applicable) are not included in this calculation.

    The formula used to calculate the compliance score for each inspection category and the overall inspection is shown below.
    •    Total Compliance Score = ((sum of the item scores) / (sum of the possible points for each item where the status is NOT NA)) X 100.
    •    Example: ((30+0+100+100) / (100+100+100+100)) X 100 = 58

    Note:
    By default, all inspection items will be weighted equally so that your current inspection compliance rates will not change unless IndustrySafe System Administrators modify scores and/or checklist status values.
