Shift inspections are a necessary part of a safe work environment. Digital shift inspections help customers improve their processes and ensure a well maintained fleet of forklifts. A well maintained fleet also ensures that productivity stays high.
A shift inspection checklist should enable the driver of the forklift to properly, but easily, collect information about the various systems of the forklift. This information can then be stored digitally and any concerns identified can be sent to the maintenance team.
Anytime an inspection fails, the failure is reported immediately to supervisors and also to the maintenance team. This allows supervisors to take appropriate action that can range from parking the forklift to signing off on use because they deem the forklift usable in a same manner.
This second action can only be allowed if maintenance is informed about the failed inspection and is preparing to fix the issue.
