We photograph what we can - it does help get the point across much more eff
ectively than a written description alone.

However, you may want to check with your institution's general counsel.  If
 you are documenting an incident, the photos can be an important component,
 but if you are documenting non-compliance as part of an internal complianc
e inspection, you should have a protocol for what to do with the photos and
 the reports over time - how long and what to retain.  Our protocol is to t
oss the inspection records, including photos, after one year or once the ne
xt inspection takes place, whichever happens first.

I do it all the time as a part of all my EHS inspections of all the plants 
I visit.  The picture is next to a written description of the issue and the
 applicable OSHA/EPA/NFPA/building code/etc regulation.  The report is dist
ributed to the plant manager, vice-president, and ceo.  Most appreciate the
 picture since it points to the issue at the time.
