Vehicle 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.
"Managing the risks to employees who drive at work requires more than just compliance with road traffic legislation. The Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 requires employers to take appropriate steps to ensure the health and safety of their employees and others who may be affected by their activities when at work. This includes the time when they are driving or riding at work, whether this is in a company or hired vehicle, or in the employee’s own vehicle. Therefore, employers need to have procedures in place to ensure that all vehicles (irrespective of who owns them) that are used for work conform to road traffic law, are safe, properly maintained and are fit for purpose. Companies should provide a checklist to encourage staff who drive for work to conduct weekly and/or pre-drive safety checks of their vehicle.” Ref: ROSPA & HSE Guidance
Each check book contains 25 individual checklists relating to vehicle components and mechanical checks to be completed before the car or van 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.
