Forklift accidents are a common problem within warehouses, often causing serious injury and in some cases death. It is vital that you use a checklist to inspect a forklift prior to use. A checklist can highlight any faulty components that might cause an incident to occur.
Health and Safety is a fundamental requirement in any business and must be regarded as an essential part of maintenance and management. Assuming equipment is safe to use is a common problem in warehouses and factories, which leads to catastrophic consequences. Help your warehouse become safer, healthier and stronger by using our forklift truck inspections.
Reduce the risk of accidents and unnecessary maintenance costs by carrying out preventative maintenance / safety inspections of forklift trucks. Our forklift inspections highlight potential faults before they develop into a major defect. This reduces your maintenance costs and ensures you're compliant with legal responsibilities.
Simply attaching our status tag to your forklift will provide a clear visual reminder to employees to carry out a pre-use forklift inspection and allows the completed forklift checklist to be placed inside the status tag to show the findings and date of inspection checklist to all other employees.
The Good to Go Safety Forklift Daily Inspection Kit provides everything required for a full year of daily inspections and has been designed by experts to help improve safety and reduce maintenance costs.
The beginning of each shift, the operator should check the fork lift truck and document the results. They should report to the supervisor any defects which might affect its safe operation to ensure they are put right.
