Conducting a Boom Lift Walk Around Inspection



The walk around inspection ensures there is no visible damage to your boom lift. A pre-operational check of your machine must be conducted before using it each day or when changing operators. Always follow the daily inspection procedure in your manual. Some other helpful tips include: The machine must remain off during inspection. Check the fuel level in the tank or the charge in the batteries. Ensure all manuals are in the storage holder. Check to make sure there are no missing parts, that they’re securely fastened and that there’s no visible damage or excessive wear. If you find a discrepancy or damage to your machine, remove it from service and alert the proper maintenance personnel. Watch the video for a more detailed overview.
