The busier your operations, the more frequently your forklift requires an inspection. For your forklift operators, a large part of their day could be spent on doing daily forklift inspections. If your inspections are still being done manually, whilst not too laborious, it is time-consuming, and paper-orientated task.
Daily inspections of your forklift trucks are required and regulated by law, to help you identify any potential safety risks, excessive wear and tear to damage on your forklift which would increase the potential risks to your operator and business.
Forklift inspections must be conducted at least once a day; prior to every shift and for busier trucks, after every shift. Just how does one quantify the real costs associated with the many hours spent over a day, week, month, or year on forklift inspections? The cost associated with the time and resources required by both your forklift operators and management personnel who must ensure compliance, safety to asset maintenance and management, business profitability and more?
Organisations across the world have common challenges and aspirations especially around productivity, safety, cost reduction, asset management as well as have the pressing need to evolve and become a more eco-efficient business. In what is only becoming a more pressurised industry and environment to operate in; reducing, managing, and maintaining friction and stress levels across your organisation is crucial for the longevity of your business.
