This Forklift Operator Daily Checklist can be used prior to daily forklift usage. This forklift inspection checklist is divided into 2 parts: before starting the engine and after starting the engine to check if all controls are functioning correctly. If any parts are found to be damaged or malfunctioning, the equipment should be tagged out and reported to the manager. Use iAuditor on mobile devices to take photos of malfunctioning parts and use iAuditor’s scheduling feature to assign and complete regular inspections.
