Pallet Truck Inspections Checklist
An innovative inspection checklist for workplace pallet trucks. Allows 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.
“Hand pallet trucks are classed as work equipment and as such must be maintained in a suitable condition and routinely inspected to ensure this remains the case, as defined by PUWER (Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998). The frequency of inspection will be dependent on the findings of a risk assessment with the minimum requirement of an annual inspection. If being used daily, in harsh environments or in areas with high risk of collisions then the frequency of inspection may be increased to monthly, weekly or daily checks. Our check books provide total flexibility to meet your specific needs.”
Each check book contains 25 individual checklists relating to components and mechanical checks to be completed before the pallet truck is used. The checklist is suitable for both manual and electric powered pallet trucks. 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.
