Sunshine Village Ski Resort Selects Field ID to Manage Avalanche Explosives

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Aug. 15, 2011) - Sunshine Village Ski & Snowboard Resort has selected Field ID, the leading provider of cloud-based inspection and safety compliance management software, to track and manage explosives used in avalanche control.

The resort, located in Banff National Park, has acquired Field ID safety inspection software along with mobile devices with scanners, and metal bar codes.

Sunshine Village is now placing the bar codes on magazines used to store explosives for winter-time avalanche control and summer-time rock blasting. The magazines, placed at various remote locations around the resort, must be checked daily by resort employees under strict regulations governing explosives.

The Field ID solution replaces the previous paper-based record-keeping with a more reliable, efficient and cost-effective way of ensuring regulatory compliance. A record of each inspection is uploaded to a Field ID server, and is permanently available for review by government inspectors.

"Scanning the information with Field ID is super-fast, super-easy and super-efficient," says Tim Ricci, Assistant Snow Safety Supervisor at Sunshine Village. "By taking paper out of the inspection process, the solution also supports our goal of being as green as possible."

In addition to regulatory compliance, Sunshine Village will use Field ID to track and manage its explosives inventory, and to track security checks throughout the resort. Sunshine also plans to track inspections of other critical safety equipment such as ropes used in rescues and chairlift evacuations.

"We're delighted that a leading ski resort like Sunshine Village has selected Field ID to deliver on its commitment to high safety standards as efficiently as possible," says Somen Mondal, CEO, Field ID. "This implementation demonstrates how Field ID can be used in a wide range of industries to improve inspection and safety compliance management."
