Bobcat Pre-Use Visual Inspection Checklist (Pad of 30)


A skid steer (also called a Bobcat or a loader) is great construction allrounder for digging, pushing and lifting. The skid steer inspection pad helps businesses perform their pre-use or daily safety inspections. 

The checklist is designed to help you comply with your duty of care under HSE guidance, LOLER and PUWER. The duplicate checklist design creates two signed copies of each inspection and incorporates a PASS/FAIL notice. Each pad has 30 checklists and is used in tandem with a hi-vis display wallet 

Dimensions: 84mm (h) x 229mm (w)

How to use

00Before every shift, the operator of the bobcat/skid steer can simply work down the inspection checklist, checking the safety of each component in turn. Once the skid steer pre-use inspection is complete, assuming safety has been established, the green PASS inspection certificate can be placed inside a safety status indicator on the vehicle ensuring that everyone can clearly see that the skid steer is safe for use. Failing skid steers can be similarly identified by a red FAIL certificate and reported for maintenance. The duplicate copy of the certificate remains inside the inspection pad and can be used as evidence of inspections should you ever need to produce this for the HSE or other official parties.

How often should a bobcat/skid steer be inspected? 

The HSE recommend a programme of daily visual checks, regular inspections and servicing schedules should be established in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions and the risks associated with each vehicle.

Drivers should be encouraged to report defects or problems. Reported problems should be put right quickly and the skid steer taken out of service if the item is safety critical.

What is a skid steer pre-use inspection?

Safety starts before the engine. Every day, you should walk around the skid steer to see that it is ready for safe operation with the aid of a checklist for daily, visual, pre-operation inspection. Alert your supervisor before starting the skid steer if you find anything wrong during your daily check.
