Allow workers to carry out pre-use checks and spot potential faults before they develop into a more serious and costly defect. These safety checklists are designed to help improve safety, reduce maintenance costs and ensure compliance with legal responsibilities.
The Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER) (regulation 8) requires that lifting operations are properly planned and that work is carried out in a safe manner. For example, there must be a pre-use check of the platform when fitted to the truck and consideration given to factors such as overturning risks. (Regulation 9) requires lifting equipment for lifting people, which includes trucks and working platforms used to lift people, to be thoroughly examined by a competent person at least once every six months or in accordance with an examination scheme.
A programme of pre-use checks, regular inspections and servicing schedules should be established in accordance with the manufacturers instructions and the risks associated with using a non-integrated working platform. Operators should be encouraged to report defects or problems. Reported problems should be put right quickly and the man basket taken out of service if the item is safety critical. The forklift platform must be thoroughly examined at least every six months to comply with LOLER and PUWER.
Each kit comes in a sturdy highly visible box which is ideal for storing used checkbooks for management records. The kit contains 50 individual (one for each week) inspections relating to the components of forklift work platforms. Duplicate carbon copies of the completed inspection 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 forklift work platform inspection. A status tag which when positioned and attached on the entrance of a work platform is a ideal way to advise employees when the equipment is "Good to Go" following a pre-use inspection. If a fault is found then the tag can display a "Do Not Use" message to quarantine the equipment until repaired and another inspection deems the forklift is safe for use. A useful wallet and pen which securely holds the book and pen to protect it from general wear and tear whilst providing a perfect writing surface whilst on the move. The kit also provides 100 tamper evident seals which provide a visual indicator that the checklist insert is in place and verified.
