Keeping people safe in your company matters. In the warehouse this entails annual equipment audits to ensure that your equipment is fully protected, working correctly and safe to operate.

Regulations have become more stringent and 2021 is facing more oversight by CalOSHA and other regulating agencies. Companies will be required to track forklift contracts and check when a safety audit was last conducted. Failure to do so could have big implications for both safety and compliance efforts and likely generate penalties.

Lift Auditors’ experts conduct the safety audits that ensure your equipment meets every daily/weekly/monthly and annual safety inspection. Our maintenance checks are conducted according to the equipment operations and maintenance manuals that forklift vehicle owners maintain (all reports and data recorded in the truck logbook).

Always referring to the trucks service manual, Lift Auditors schedules an onsite “Safety Audit” of the forklift at least every twelve months. Our experts confirm that the forklifts remain fully compliant or, recommend specific and comprehensive repair specifications as needed.

They Include a physical on-site visit where we inspect designated equipment condition criteria including legally required safety regulations, suitability, and environment procedures.
