This article provides an overview of the Assets feature.

What are assets?

Assets are physical objects you can add to the SafetyCulture platform. You can input key asset details like unique IDs, asset types, associated sites, rich media, documentation, or other custom fields you choose. Adding assets to your organization enables your team to perform scheduled inspections and create actions that revolve around your assets.

Plus, you can view a complete history of activity directly from each asset’s profile. Through integrations, you can also connect SafetyCulture with your existing asset management system to create a centralized repository for your asset information.

Link your assets to sites to speed up your workflow. When an asset's linked to a site, both the asset and the site will be pre-filled into inspections started from the site profile. Once inspections are conducted, they can easily be found under the relevant asset and site profiles.

View assets in site profiles via the web app.


Select assets in inspections to associate inspection data with specific assets. From this, you'll be able to gain a holistic overview of the asset's past inspections from its profile. To help your team start inspections easily, you can create asset profile QR codes.
