#2: Digital Forklift Inspection Checklist
Reach truck safety begins with a forklift inspection checklist. Although there’s both paper-based checklists and digital forklift inspection checklists in the market today, using a digital forklift inspection checklist will give you insights, long-term and short-term, in order to help keep the reach truck safety working safely and efficiently in a proactive manner.
There are a few benefits a digital forklift inspection brings to reach truck safety. First, the forklift operator needs to scan or enter a PIN number before the operator begins. This practice of forklift access control will keep those safe who come up with the great idea of trying to drive a reach truck. Next, operations or maintenance managers can change, edit, add or delete inspection questions on the Dashboard so you are getting a true read on what safety metrics are for each forklift. Finally, use the Dashboard to get all sorts of graphical metrics so you can make decisions based on results. And…get a notification to all those who need to know if a forklift failed an inspection.
