Fork Lift Truck Inspection Checklist (Pad of 30)
The forklift truck 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 L117 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
Our checklists are suitable for use with any standard forklift including Toyota, Jungheinrich, Doosan and Linde.

How to use
Before every shift, the operator of the truck can simply work down the inspection checklist, checking the safety of each component in turn. Once the 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 truck is safe for use. Failing trucks 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 do forklifts need to be inspected?
A pre-use inspection is often called a daily inspection and although in many cases, a daily check is appropriate, in some situations it might not be enough. For example, if a warehouse operation is 24x7 and the forklift is also used in the same frequency, then the truck should be inspected before the beginning of every shift to detect any faults and mechanical issues that might occurred.
