Pallet Truck Safety Checklist

Download our pallet truck checklist and make it part of the daily routine

We’ve put together a handy guide to a daily inspection for pallet truck operators – download it below, print it out, and stick it up wherever your pallet trucks are stored or used!


Pallet trucks are often treated as disposable items which is unfortunate when with a small amount of care and maintenance, they can last a surprisingly long time.

In addition to the annual inspections required under HSE regulations, carrying out a daily check before use is a great way to make sure they remain in good working order, and that they’re safe to use.

This simple chart outlines a few simple checks that truck operators can make on the wheels, handles, lift action, trigger and brakes before starting work.

They’re all really simple – the checks can be carried out in just a couple of minutes – and will help you identify problems that can be repaired early on, avoiding unsafe, costly and productivity-disrupting breakdowns.
