Maintenance regimes and defect management processes differ for the LGV fleet but they are no less vital. Pre-shift checks often include daily and weekly checks, ensuring key checks are carried out daily but time is not spent on those not required so frequently.
SmartCheck allows key checks such as tyres, glass, mirrors, etc, plus visual inspections and daily FORS checks, where applicable, to be performed daily but items such as tyre treads, fluid levels, etc, can be reported weekly. The weekly checks only show when appropriate, so no “Not Applicable” checks to take up unnecessary time.
Field Engineers also tend to carry vital equipment and stock. Add “Advisory” checks to make sure your operatives report all tools and equipment are available and in good order, stock is to correct level and PPE is available. Issues reported at this level alert management to replace missing or damaged items. All using SmartCheck.
If your drivers are subject to domestic hours recording, you may want to look at our TimeCheck app, a fully interactive weekly timesheet, which can be signed off on the operative’s device or via the web portal, for maximum flexibility.
