A pre-start check is basically inspecting a vehicle or equipment before using it. This routine makes sure all the machinery and vehicles in a fleet are working right and safe to use. These checks aren’t just a good idea – they’re required by a lot of Australian regulations.
Locking down vehicles until pre-starts are done has some big benefits:
- Safety first! Immobilizing vehicles prevents accidents by ensuring nothing is being used until its confirmed to be in good, safe condition.
- Things run smoother. A vehicle that’s regularly checked pre-start is less likely to break down, so operations keep flowing and downtime is reduced.
- Following the rules. Australian regulations say these checks must be done and immobilizing vehicles acts as a safeguard against accidentally breaking the rules.
