Forklift Inspection: Streamline the Digital Forklift Inspection Process
The current paper-based inspection process has numerous opportunities for error. As each forklift checklist is filled out, the clipboard or book needs to be taken to the office where it is stored away on a shelf or maybe even a bucket ready to be reviewed. Opportunities for errors are countless: is the checklist filled out, was it filled out correctly, did the checklist get misplaced, left somewhere on a box or even accidentally thrown into the garbage.
Let’s streamline the digital forklift inspection. When the forklift operator is ready to get started, the mounted tablet is visible for the operator to see. The operator either enters in a PIN or scans his work badge. The checklist is automatically assigned to him/her and the first question begins on the screen.
To keep the operator from rushing through the checklist, managers have the option of randomizing the questions. This way, thought always needs to be placed into answering every question. Once the checklist is complete, the data is automatically sent to the Dashboard.
If a forklift inspection fails, the forklift will not proceed with its daily duties and a notification is sent to one, two or ten people who need to know of the new issue.
