Forklift Pre-Shift Inspection
As the safety professional, you can put together your own OSHA visit checklist that is specific to your lift trucks. You begin by implementing the S2 Inspection Checklist with Impact Detection by SIERA.AI. Here’s why. The forklift pre-shift inspection checklist is digitized. You say, ‘so what…there’s plenty of digital checklists out there.’ Except, they don’t have randomization.
One of the key purposes of a forklift pre-shift inspection is to get accurate answers to the questions asked. Or the information is not valid or useful. In the telemetry Dashboard, that automatically comes with the forklift safety system, you have the option of turning on ‘randomization’. This allows the questions in each section to be randomized. What does that do? It encourages the reading of the questions thus getting better, more accurate answers.
If the answers are quickly answered and the forklift inspection fails, the forklift won’t start. In addition, you and others of your choosing, will be notified of the failed forklift inspection. This is a great piece of information that you can place on your OSHA visit checklist letting the OSHA inspector know of the constraints that are in place for safety of the operator, pedestrians and the facility and products itself.
