Weekly Vehicle Inspections Checklist 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.
"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 kit contains 50 individual (weekly) 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.
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.
