The MasterCheck app creator chose to release the updated 2.0 version of the app on the occasion of the 2020 annual National Forklift Safety Day in the US. The updated release includes additional features aimed at improving workplace safety and making every day a safer day in the forklift environment.
The most common requirement of occupational health and safety entities throughout the world is the pre-shift forklift inspection; and for good reason. Pre-shift inspections are designed to be a proactive precaution to identify possible hazardous issues with forklifts and lower the risk of a forklift related injury or fatality.
MasterCheck forklift inspection app creator Gary Wilson chose this day to launch specifically stating: “National Forklift Safety Day is a day of awareness and a reminder of best practices. When those involved in keeping the workplace a safe workplace, are aware of the hazards, the best practices and most importantly have the tools to be proactive about forklift safety, the benefits are substantial. We believe the added tools in the 2.0 version will contribute to making everyone safer.”
In version 2.0, the operators continue to use the app to save time and eliminate paperwork by completing digital inspections and reports, all with related photos. Additional inspection forms include Skid Steer Loaders and Cranes. The supervisors can now manage multiple locations and view operator and forklift performance analytics for the entire company, or filtered by location in the web-based Supervisor Dashboard. New customizable forms can be created, and customizable notifications can be sent for any type of occurrence or due date such as an operator’s license renewal date, or a planned maintenance service due based on actual operating hours.
“Supervisors at our various locations are excited about the new features in version 2.0 of the MasterCheck app, especially the added analytics and customizable notifications. These improvements will help us continue to be a very safe operation for our valued employees” said Glen Wegel, VP Operations, Kitchen Cabinet Distributors.
