We have designed an operator daily logbook that makes it easy to perform crane start-up and shutdown checks simply and consistently, also includes instructions on how to perform load calculations. The daily logbook provides the supervisor with a copy of the completed checklist to ensure maintenance issues are responded to and tracked.
Not everyone uses a crane every day and this logbook is a “How to reminder”. When a supervisor responds to reported maintenance issues, it shows that they are aware of the importance for maintaining equipment and those operators are performing and documenting all required safety tasks.
Objective records: Effective safety programming teaches how to extend the corporate health and safety program’s “training element” to include safety training for workers and instructions for monitoring. This lays the ground work for developing unique instructions applicable to all overhead traveling lift equipment that requires a start-up, shut-down and is documented in a logbook.
