Daily Forklift Checklist Today is: April 17, 2014

DID YOU KNOW THAT O.S.H.A. REQUIRES A DAILY OR PRE-SHIFT INSPECTION
OF EVERY FORKLIFT BEFORE IT IS PLACED IN OPERATION?

But you may ask yourself "What specifically are my operators to check for?" 

For your convenience, we have provided a sample daily or pre-shift checklist for your use which outlines items to be inspected.  Of course, depending on your application, you may find it useful to include other items. 

Even if a forklift is not in use on a particular day or shift, it's worthwhile to note that for future reference.  If an O.S.H.A. inspection ever occurred, there would be no gaps in the operation history of that lift truck.

Remember though that ALL forklift operators must be authorized and properly trained in safe operation.  This is the employer's responsibility and SuperTech can provide this necessary and O.S.H.A. safety training at your facility.

Also ensure that your personnel have read the Operators Manual carefully and made themselves familiar with the lift truck.   Remind operators to wear their seatbelt too! Forklift trucks are particularly susceptible to tipovers.   Seatbelt use is also enforced by OSHA.


OSHA REQUIREMENTS

OSHA requires a pre-shift inspection of all lift trucks before they are placed into service. Employers must be certain that no condition exists that might adversely affect the safety of the truck. If problems are found, they must be reported and the truck should be taken out of service immediately for repair. A "Warning: Do NOT Operate" Tag should be affixed to the truck, and not removed until the necessary repairs have been made.

Since pre-shift inspection is an OSHA requirement, it is important for the employer to be prepared to document that these inspections have been made on a regular basis.  Review OSHA 1910.178(q)(7) and 1910.178(p)(1).
