Automates required forklift inspections, provides operational insights
Various occupational health and safety acts across Canada make it clear that a forklift inspection must be completed before every shift to ensure the safe operation of the machinery.
The newly released MasterCheck app is designed to automate the process of required forklift inspections, and to provide the supervisor with important operational insights. Operators can now complete the inspections quickly and virtually on their mobile device or tablet and easily send a record of that inspection to their supervisor. The forklift inspection is saved in the cloud and on the device for the operator’s own records. Once the inspection is sent, the supervisor can receive a notification that all inspections are complete.
In addition, operators can complete and send repair reports, incident reports and near-miss reports. The operator can also include photos with the report.
“The app makes the process so much easier for both the operator and the supervisor that we expect a much higher level of compliance to this very important law,” said app creator Gary Wilson.
