Heavy Equipment - Pre-use Inspection v1.0.1 (SSHEP)

Heavy Equipment - Pre-Use Inspection is part of VISTA's growing family of Silver Series online training programs, 1-2 hours in length and delivered via the web. They are ideal for new operator training.

The purpose of this program is to teach your trainees a practical process to perform a pre-use inspection. This can be applied to all seven of the machine types presented in VISTA's Heavy Equipment - Intro & Safety training program. This hour-long program explains the importance of performing a pre-use inspection, key components common to most types of heavy equipment, and the checks required on each type of equipment.
Key topics in this program include:

Claiming the machine
How to perform a thorough and consistent inspection
Engine system inspection
Hydraulic and fluid mechanical component inspection
Drive line components
Checking high stress areas of the machine's frame
Inspecting tracks, tires and brakes
Fire protection systems
This training program is designed to give your trainees a solid foundation for inspecting heavy equipment. Once that foundation is established, employees can structure inspections specific to machines in your fleet and your safety procedures.

Failure to do a pre-use inspection could be costing your company unplanned downtime and equipment damage, as well as potentially putting your operators at risk of injury or death. Safeguard your operators and equipment by investing in this essential training module.

Trainers: Before you begin classroom or field training, why not provide your trainees with a solid foundation of knowledge about the equipment and how to operate it safety? This web-based training course can be delivered any time, anywhere you have access to a high-speed internet connection.
