Loading Shovel Pre-Use Visual Inspection Checklist (pad of 30)


Wheeled loading shovels are versatile machines, widely used in the waste and recycling sector. The loading shovel 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 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

Before every shift, the operator of the loading shovel can simply work down the inspection checklist, checking the safety of each component in turn. Once the loading shovel inspection is complete, assuming safety has been established, the green PASS inspection certificate can be placed inside a safety status indicator on the truck ensuring that everyone can clearly see that the shovel is safe for use. Failing loading shovels 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.
