Heavy equipment inspection sheets provide a written record of all safety inspections, scheduled maintenance and repairs for construction equipment and vehicles, warehouse equipment, airport equipment and government facilities equipment. Inspection sheets help prevent work-related injuries and help keep equipment fully operational. These sheets may also help indicate the best times to replace older equipment.
Since the Occupational Safety & Health Administration guidelines pertaining to heavy equipment inspections remain vague, according to the Mason & Mason Insurance Agency, equipment operators and industry supervisors should create and implement an inspection process that includes recording inspection findings and repairs using checklists. On its website, OSHA provides activity sheets that include suggestions and recommendations for specific pieces of heavy equipment.
Industry supervisors should provide training and assistance in filling out heavy equipment inspection sheets. Depending on the types of records a company or agency wants to keep, heavy equipment operators may need to fill out daily or weekly inspection sheets. Maintenance departments may also have to fill out inspection checklists during regular inspection periods.
