Weekly MEWP Inspection Kit
Good to Go Safety is a Safe Equipment Management System (SEMS) which allows workers to carry out pre-use checks of workplace equipment and spot potential faults before they develop into a more serious and costly defect. Attaching a tag to equipment provides a clear visual reminder to carry out a pre-use inspection and allows a completed checklist to be placed inside the tag to show the findings and date of inspection. The Weekly Inspection Kit provides everything required for a full year of weekly checks and is designed to help improve safety, reduce maintenance costs and ensure compliance with legal responsibilities.
“A programme of daily visual checks, regular inspections and servicing schedules should be established in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and the risks associated with each Mobile Elevating Work Platform (MEWP). Operators should be encouraged to report defects or problems. Reported problems should be put right quickly and the MEWP taken out of service if the item is safety critical. The MEWP must be thoroughly examined at least every six months by a competent person or in accordance with an examination scheme drawn up by such a competent person.” Ref: HSE Guidance
Each kit contains 50 individual (weekly) checklists relating to MEWP components and mechanical checks to be completed before the digger 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.
Each Weekly Inspection Kit includes:
• 1 x Status Tags to attach to the equipment and show its status.
• 2 x Safety Check Books provide 50 individual checklists, allowing one to be completed each week and the findings displayed inside the status tag. Additional books can be ordered as and when required.
• 1x Check Book Wallet & Pen, to store the current book and provide a suitable writing surface when completing checklists.
• 100 x Tamper Evident Seals, which can be used to deter and identify unauthorised access to the status tag.
