Weekly Scaffold Tower Inspections Checklist Kit
Good to Go Safety is a Safe Equipment Management System (SEMS) which allows workers to carry out a pre-use checklist of workplace equipment and spot potential faults before they develop into a more serious and costly defect. Attaching a status tag to your scaffold tower 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.
“Towers must be inspected as often as necessary to ensure their safety. It must be inspected after assembly, before use and after any event likely to have affected its stability or structural integrity. The tower should be re-inspected at suitable intervals but at least every 7 days when on site. A record of completed inspection reports should be kept until work is completed and for at least a further 3 months thereafter. All components should be checked to ensure that they are in good condition.” Ref: PASMA (Prefabricated Access Suppliers’ and Manufacturers’ Association) – The trade association for the UK mobile access tower industry.
Each kit contains 50 individual (weekly) checklists relating to components and structural checks to be completed before the scaffold tower 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.
