The Good to Go Safety™ SEMS allows you to take control of your workplace and carry out equipment checks in line with your quality, maintenance and H&S policies. Many companies need daily checks to be carried out on various types of equipment (either as legislative requirements or best practice), whilst others may find weekly or even monthly checks to be sufficient.

Our innovative range of checklists and tagging systems for workplace equipment allows competent inspectors to carry out regular checks and clearly display the findings to all employees. Good to Go Safety™ is flexible to suit your needs, whilst providing a duplicate copy of each completed checklist for your management records.

Many companies may ask the question, "Why do I need a SEMS if we haven’t had an accident?" Good to Go Safety™ attempts to identify potential faults before they develop into a costly incident. We don’t believe in waiting for an accident to occur before taking action, we simply remove potential risks at the source by promoting pre-use checks.

Good to Go Safety™ offers a simple, effective and affordable solution to equipment safety. The tag is universal, fitting to all types of equipment - simply choose the relevant check book and you are good to go. It is also unique in its ability to validate the status display. A patented tamper evident seal can be fitted to the tag once a check has been carried out. This prevents the findings from being removed or altered without an operative's knowledge. All equipment checks are also stored in a duplicate book, providing a clear chronological audit trail which can be examined in the event of any future accidents (providing invaluable documented evidence in the process).

WHO?

  • Under PUWER98 legislation, any inspection should be carried out by a competent person (this could be an employee if they have the necessary competence to perform the task) and a record kept until the next inspection.
  • A major benefit of the Good to Go Safety™ SEMS is that once displayed, it visibly informs multiple users of the equipment status.
  • Staff should be fully trained on the necessary procedures prior to the SEMS being introduced to the workplace.
  • The SEMS will become an essential tool for your H&S officer and/or site manager.
