Operators that run waste recycling and management companies, will often have a range of different vehicles in their fleet and statistics point to a growing focus on vehicle related safety: “Between 2001/02 and 2009/10 there were a total of 57 fatalities in the waste management and recycling industry caused by being hit by a moving vehicle” (source www.hse.gov.uk).
SmartCheck can assist with standard DVSA/FORS pre-use checks for vehicles and can include vehicle-specific checks, such as hydraulics and lifting gear, as required. However, further value can be added with QHSE pre-delivery or collection risk assessments, including photos and/or client sign off if necessary, to ensure all bases are covered. Reports can be retained online but also sent to a client.
Additional equipment and plant will often be (or is meant to be) subject to the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER). SmartCheck also covers PUWER checks, quickly and simply, with minimum time/data entry required and on a pre-use or weekly check programme, with professionally formatted, completed reports, available on demand.
