An operator should inspect the forklift truck every day, including at the beginning of each shift, and before using each time.
The operator should carry out a visual check ("circle" check) before starting the forklift. After completing the visual pre-start check, the operator should do an operational pre-use check.
Report any problems identified in daily check to the supervisor immediately.
Check with your jurisdiction for any requirements regarding frequency of checks, and maintenance. A list of Canadian government departments responsible for health and safety can be found here.
Add a badge to your website or intranet so your workers can quickly find answers to their health and safety questions.
