Excavator Inspection Checklist (pad of 30)
A simple, yet disciplined procedure to help organisations complete a pre-use inspection of their excavators to ensure they are safe for use.
The excavator inspection pad enables an organisation to work through a duplicate checklist and carry out a pre-use inspection, ensuring the excavator is safe for use. The top copy of the checklist is displayed on or by the excavator to show that it has passed its inspection. The duplicate copy remains in the pad as evidence that the inspection has taken place in the event of an HSE investigation.
When conducting a pre-use check the operator can simply work down the inspection checklist, checking the safety of each component in turn. This simple procedure helps you to comply with the Provision & Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER) regulation 5 that states that all work equipment must be maintained and be safe to do the job for which it is intended. If the excavator is being used for lifting operations, however infrequently, the inspection will also help you comply with the Lifting Operations & Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER) where regulation 9.3(b) states “that lifting equipment is inspected by a competent person at suitable intervals between Thorough Examinations.
Once the inspection is complete, assuming safety has been established, the inspection certificate can be placed inside a safety status indicator wallet on or near the excavator or within a windscreen wallet, ensuring that every employee can clearly see that it is safe for use. Faulty excavators can be similarly identified and handed over 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 bodies.
