Pinnacle Pre Start IM - Inspect and Manage

Operators are required to perform this daily forklift pre start inspection checklist before utilising the forklift, as a standard practice in compliance with workplace health and safety regulations. The checklist serves to evaluate the forklift's general condition and confirm its safe operational status. A pre-shift inspection can identify maintenance problems before they cause an accident.

Some of the critical forklift inspections for safe operations include:

Examine the floor for any fluid presence, which could indicate potential hose cracks.

  • Verify fluid levels, including oil, hydraulic fluid, coolant, and battery water if applicable.
  • Assess tire condition for balding spots, cracks, cuts, or gouges that require attention.
  • Inspect fork condition, focusing on the top clip retaining pin and heel.
  • Ensure the backrest extension is functioning correctly.
  • Verify the presence and legibility of all warning decals and plates.
  • Confirm the availability and legibility of the operational manual within the forklift.
  • Make certain that the operator's area is free of debris that could impede operations.
  • Check the functionality of all safety equipment, including seat belts, backup alarms, and horns.
