Naming assets

Naming assets

There are many descriptive fields when setting up a new asset in the Hasmate program, e.g:

  • Registration Number
  • Asset
  • Make
  • Model

When used for a vehicle (as an example), these fields are fantastic – as they cover everything you need to know about what type of vehicle it is.

However, the Asset field can often be brief – or similar to other assets – making it difficult to identify which asset is being described, if looked at in isolation.

Why can’t the Asset field/name just be “Car”?

If you have three work vehicles, and they all have the Asset field as “car” or “Suzuki” – the main problem is when you are associating an asset to a hazard  (using “Associated Hazards”), or associating an asset to an incident (using “Property Damage”).  The drop-down in each case will only shows the “Asset” field – making identification of the correct asset difficult.

What should be in the Asset field/name?

The “Asset” field should have enough information that you can identify the asset just by that field.  In some cases, it will mean double-up of some information.

E.g. when the asset is a Suzuki Swift with registration NY759, this is how we would name the vehicle:

  • Registration Number – NY759
  • Asset – Suzuki Swift NY759
  • Make – Suzuki
  • Model – Swift
