In recognition of the health and safety considerations that arise from new technology, WorkSafeBC has created an equipment inspection checklist to help employers ensure safety requirements are being met.
The checklist is available on worksafebc.com, and is divided into eight sections according to the relevant regulations: emergency site-specific procedures; operation of traction-assist equipment; safe work areas; radio-controlled equipment; equipment guarding and emergency escape; equipment inspection and maintenance; rigging and attachment points; and anchors.
