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.
Keeping a record when a tractor safety inspection checklist has been carried out and what work has been done is also important. These records can help show that a tractor is well maintained and regularly checked, proving invaluable in the event of an HSE safety inspection following an accident. The tractor safety inspection checks may also help reduce the risk of an accident occurring in the first place, as possible defects may be highlighted and repairs carried out before they deteriorate further. Regular maintenance can also extend the lifespan of the machine and help prevent deterioration of parts, which could lead to expensive repair bills.
The most common causes of serious and fatal injuries in agriculture involve farm vehicles and machinery. To comply with legislation, you should carry out daily checks to make sure the machinery you are about to use, or allow someone else to use, is safe and working correctly.
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 and structural integrity of a tractor. 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 inspection. A status tag which when positioned and attached one tractor is an 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 tractor until it is repaired and another inspection deems the tractor 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.
