CMPA’s new mobile plant safety checklist books

By on April 16, 2014

MELANIE SUMPTER, Administration Support Officer for CMPA reports on the new mobile plant safety checklist books.

FOLLOWING a review by machinery suppliers, company owners and employees, the CMPA has released three new mobile plant safety checklist books. These will replace the existing Mobile Plant Report and Inspection Book which have served members well for the last eleven years.

The three safety checklist books are now machine type specific and cover:

Front End Loader, Dump Truck and Excavator

They retain the 10 Issue Resolution Forms for use when required and have been reformatted to cover six parts over two pages.

Safety Requirements: These are to be met before operating and remain the same. If any of the requirements are answered in the negative, your Manager should be consulted for further directions.

Pre Start: These have been reworded to become more machine type specific and are formatted to assist the operator in completing the questions while undertaking the inspections and carrying out specific machine tasks (e.g. topping up oil).

During Day: This is a new section within the checklist to facilitate and prompt the continuous recording of maintaining a safe working environment.

End of Shift: This has been revised to become more machine type specific and has been formatted to reflect the operator’s end of shift duties, including daily sign off.

Daily Directions: This is a new section to provide a point of reference where operators can list or be provided with written directions / tasks and provide comments on those undertaken.

Weekly Directions: This is a new section which addresses weekly reporting requirements. This is specifically relevant to rubber tyre vehicles and tyre pressure checks. The new mobile plant safety checklist books should be:

  • referred to before the entry of any operator of the machine
  • filled in as required before commencement of each working shift
  • handed to your manager at the end of each working
  • shift
