MEWP Poster

Accidents involving MEWPs can have serious cost and programme implications for the site involved. Worst case scenarios may lead to serious injuries and even death.

It is essential that the correct type of equipment is used to ensure that working at height can be carried out safely; detailed documentation should be supplied with the MEWP (also referred to as a cherry picker or scissor lift) and referred to for specific information. MEWPS have become an essential choice of equipment for short term work at height activities to maximise user safety.

Defective equipment can significantly increase the potential for accidents in the workplace so providing training and guidance is key to ensuring that employees are competent in the use of, and inspection of, workplace equipment. Our latest A2 poster provides a visual reminder to employees, advising of what they should be looking out for during a pre-use inspection of their MEWP. This safety poster mirrors the contents of the MEWP Inspection Checklist to help provide a complete equipment management system. Preventative maintenance not only improves safety but can significantly reduce maintenance costs by spotting faults early, before they develop into something more serious.

This poster is perfect for displaying in both internal and external environments; our posters are printed on tough, durable, wipe-clean synthetic paper making them easy to roll up without tearing, creasing or delaminating. They can be easily positioned using pins, tape, or within poster frames.

Lorry Loader Inspection Checklists

It is a legal requirement that Lorry Loader Cranes receive an up-to-date inspection to ensure it is safe to use and complies with current regulations (LOLER, PUWER, HSWA, MHSWR, and RTA)

Pre-use inspections are a key part of any effective maintenance regime. Lorry loader cranes are complex machines with electrical, mechanical and hydraulic parts that require the manufacturer’s preventative maintenance instructions to be strictly complied with.

As with all lifting equipment the loader crane is subject to deterioration. This is why routine inspections can help to identify faults before they develop further, improving safety and reducing costs. The pre-use inspection should be carried out at the start of the working day, shift or when taking over the lorry loader. It is important that personnel asked to carry out these inspections have the necessary training, experience and competence to do so safely and accurately.

Our aim is for our products to help companies improve workplace safety, reduce maintenance costs and comply with legislation. The development of new products is a key part of this mission and we are pleased to announce that our new range of lorry loader maintenance products are now available to order CLICK HERE.

It is testament of Good to Go Safety's ability to deliver workplace solutions that our customers continue to provide us with such positive feedback and suggestions for new checklists, which is exactly the case with our latest version. Pre-use checks are an integral part of any effective maintenance regime and we’re confident our new hiab checklists will prove a popular addition – these are complex machines with electrical, mechanical and hydraulic systems that require preventative maintenance instructions to be strictly complied with.

St Patrick's Day

When it comes to equipment safety you shouldn’t have to rely on the luck of the Irish
Happy St Patrick’s Day from the team at Good to Go Safety

We have a range of equipment tagging and checklist systems designed to cover all the bases. The tag is attached to equipment and displays a "Do Not Use" message until such time that an inspection is carried out. The checklist is then placed inside the tag to display the date and status of the findings to identify to everyone if the equipment is Good to Go. A duplicate copy is retained for management records.

The system is totally flexible to meet the needs of the company - allowing the frequency of inspection to be defined by your risk assessment - in a busy, high traffic warehouse the frequency of racking inspection may be higher than in a smaller pedestrianised warehouse. Whether it be daily, weekly, monthly or ad-hoc the system adapts to meet your requirements.
