Routine and proactive maintenance is the way to make your machine handling equipment last. While the advanced technology and moving parts of your machinery add value to the workplace, they also can increase the likelihood that you'll experience problems.At Trupar America, we've put together the top daily checks you should make on your forklift equipment to stay ahead of any problems and ensure your equipment is safe to operate.
Create a Daily ChecklistProvide employees with a physical checklist they can walk around with and use to check off each task they need to do. This works well for smaller companies providing employees with a guide so that nothing is forgotten.
If you have a larger organization, we recommend that you include completion and sign-off for each item. With either a sheet of paper or via a digital tablet, your employees should be required to check a box after each component is checked. This will help to ensure that all daily checks are completed, and no items are left behind.
