Trailer Inspections Checklist
The Good to Go Safety Check Book is an innovative tool for workplace equipment. It 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.
“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 check book contains 25 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.
