Hoist Pre-Use Inspection Checklist (Pad of 30)
Hoists are a fast and easy way of lifting and lowering heavy loads and passengers vertically across many industries including construction and facilities management. The hoist 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
Our checklists are suitable for use with any standard hoist including GEDA, Fraco and Beta Max.

How to use
Before use, the hoist operator can simply work down the inspection checklist, checking the safety of each component in turn. Once the 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 hoist ensuring that everyone can clearly see that the hoist is safe for use. Failing hoists 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.

What is a hoist pre-use inspection?
One of the best safety practices for construction machinery in general are pre-use checks. These inspections are essential since numerous external factors could have caused a change in the hoist’s state since its last inspection. On a daily basis or prior to one’s shift, the hoist’s operator should inspect the hoist for any noticeable damage. Areas in which to check include the operating mechanism, overload limit devices, hooks, latches and chain or rope.
Does a hoist require a LOLER inspection?
Yes it does. In addition to simple pre-use or daily checks, employers should ensure that lifting equipment is thoroughly examined (normally once or twice a year (if people are being lifted) but, in some cases, this may be more or less frequent.
