How can I use the '[Procore] Jobsite Cleanliness and Preparedness Checklist' inspection template on my project?


Procore has added a new inspection template called '[Procore] Jobsite Cleanliness and Preparedness Checklist'. This inspection template has been automatically added to the Company level Inspections tool for all companies with the Inspections tool enabled. See the steps below for instructions on how to add this template to one or more of your project's Inspections tool.

We recommend that you use this checklist to take preventative measures necessary in maintaining a clean jobsite and to mitigate the spread of disease. Always reference the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization, and local regulatory bodies and public health organizations for guidance.

Use of this template does not guarantee compliance with any applicable laws and regulations, nor does it guarantee avoidance of any specific incident. We recommend that you contact your attorney to obtain advice with respect to any particular issue.




Step 1: Optional. Edit the Inspection Template at the Company Level

If you want to make changes to the inspection template that will impact all projects the template is used on, we recommend editing the inspection template at the Company level before adding the template to your projects.

Step 3: Optional. Edit the Inspection Template at the Project Level

If you want to make changes to the inspection template that will only impact one project the template is used on, we recommend editing the inspection template at the Project level after you have added it to your project.

See Edit a Project Level Inspection Template OR

Click here to view the steps.  

  1. Navigate to the Project level Inspections tool.
  2. Click the Configure Settings icon-settings-gear-android.png icon.
  3. Click Templates.
  4. Click Edit next to the inspection template that you want to edit.
    Note: An icon-company-level.png icon indicates a Company level Inspection template has been added to the project. 
  5. Under 'General Information', edit the following fields:
    Note: If the template you are editing is a Company level Inspection template, certain fields cannot be edited in the Project level Inspections tool. These fields are indicated by an icon-company-level.png  icon.
    • Name icon-company-level.png: Title your inspection. This will show up on your inspections log page and will help you differentiate between your inspections within your project. This is a required field.
    • Type icon-company-level.png: Choose from the list of inspection types added to the company (e.g. Safety). (Note: If you have not added inspection types to your project, see Configure Advanced Settings: Company Level Inspections. You will need to have 'Admin' level permissions on the Company level Inspections tool.)
    • Trade icon-company-level.png (Optional): Give your inspection a trade (e.g. Electrical, plumbing). (Note: Your company's trade list can be managed at your company level's Admin tab under 'Trade Configuration.) 
    • Company Description icon-company-level.png: Company level Inspection templates may include a separate description.
    • Description (Optional): Include any relevant details about the inspection.
    • Attachments: Attach any relevant files to the templates by clicking Attach Files. 
      Note: If you try to create an inspection template without a name or with a name that already exists, there will be an error message that details the reason. You can create an inspection with the same name as one in the Recycle Bin, but once you name it, you cannot restore a template in the Recycle Bin without first editing an inspection template to change the name.
  6. To edit existing sections and items on the template, click on the field you want to edit. 
    Note: Existing sections and items cannot be edited on Company level inspection templates in the Project level Inspections tool.
  7. To delete a template section or item, click the trash bin icon-delete-trash6.png icon to the right of the item heading.
  8. Add new sections, items, and item details to your inspection template:
    • + Add section
    • + Add item 
    • + Quick Add
      Note: You can reorder individual items within a section of your template by dragging your item with the reorder icon-reorder-grip.png icon. To reorder an entire section, click the toggle on icon-toggle-on-android.png icon next to Reorder Sections and drag the sections of your choice.

Step 4: Perform the Inspection

Inspections can also be performed using Procore's iOS and Android mobile applications. See Perform an Inspection (iOS) and Perform an Inspection (Android).

See Perform an Inspection OR

Click here to view the steps.  


To save time, use the TAB and ENTER keys on your keyboard to switch between sections and buttons.

  • When you press TAB, it will save your input and move to the next section or button.
  • When you press ENTER, it will activate the button you are on.
  1. Navigate to the Project level Inspections tool.
  2. Click View next to the inspection you want to perform.
    Note: You will notice a number after the title of your inspection. This number denotes the number of the type of inspection you are performing. For example, if you have 7 inspections in Windows inspections, and you wish to create and perform another windows inspection, you will see 'Windows #8' as the title of the inspection for organizational purposes.
  3. Scroll down to the 'Inspection Items' section. As you perform your inspection, mark the items or sections according to their accompanying response option.


    Note: Each inspection item has an activity feed that includes the following information: Response Changes, Attachments, Photos, Comments, and Observations
  4. If you are performing an inspection that includes a section that is no longer applicable to the project, toggle the Mark section as N/A on to mark all inspection items in that section as N/A. Any previously marked inspection items in that section will be overridden with N/A, and the section will be collapsed. Expand the section again by clicking the caret on the right, or turn off the toggle by clicking it again. This gives the items in a section no status, and the history will reflect the status changes. 
  5. Optional: Add comments to an inspection item.
  6. Optional: Add attachments to an inspection item
  7. Optional: Create an observation from an inspection.
  8. As you perform the inspection, the wheel at the top of the page will provide a breakdown of your responses.
