Daily Trailer Inspections Checklist Kit
Good to Go Safety is a Safe Equipment Management System (SEMS) which allows workers to carry out pre-use checks of workplace equipment and spot potential faults before they develop into a more serious and costly defect. Attaching a tag to equipment provides a clear visual reminder to carry out a pre-use inspection and allows a completed checklist to be placed inside the tag to show the findings and date of inspection. The Daily Inspection Kit provides everything required for a full year of daily checks and is designed to help improve safety, reduce maintenance costs and ensure compliance with legal responsibilities.
“The trailer operator or the driver of the towing vehicle, has the responsibility for the safe operation of the trailer. When used for work the tow trailer is classed as work equipment and falls under the requirements of PUWER (The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations). The frequency of servicing and maintenance of the trailer will often depend on the type and frequency of usage, but it is recommended to complete a daily inspection or before each journey - certain checks are essential for safety.” Ref: NTTA (National Trailer & Towing Association)
Each kit contains 275 individual checklists relating to trailer components, hitching and structural checks to be completed before the trailer is used. Duplicate carbon copies of the completed checklists are retained in the book for management records. The book also includes useful guidance notes to remind operatives what to look for during their inspection.
Each Daily Inspection Kit includes:
• 2 x Status Tags to attach to the equipment and show its status (includes a spare).
• 11 x Safety Check Books provide 275 individual checklists, allowing one to be completed each day of the year (based on a 5-day working week) and the findings displayed inside the status tag. Additional books can be ordered as and when required.
• 1x Check Book Wallet & Pen, to store the current book in use and provide a solid writing surface when completing checklists.
• 300 x Tamper Evident Seals, which can be used to deter and identify unauthorised access to the status tag.
