Exciting times in our South Canterbury franchised territory, increased machine numbers as a result of more & more satisfied Accessman customers, has resulted in the branch located in 101 Hilton Highway needing to move to a larger yard. Our branch manager Alan Wilson and our recently employed full time driver Chris Williams are pleased to announce that as of Monday the 24th of August, they will be relocating to 88 Meadows Road Washdyke, next to Downers & just in front of DB Breweries.More space, a huge undercover workshop area & plenty of access to turn around & or drive through make the move to the Meadows Road site an improved experience for both our existing clients & a continuation of the friendly service any new clients can expect in their interaction with the Accessman brand.

Machine log books, why are we required to now fill these in?

 

This months topic is the log book that you will find hanging in an all weather satchel on each and every Accessman EWP.

The introduction of a log book on all machines has been in place since August 2014, and as part of the Best Practice Guide that the work place inspectors have. You can expect to be asked to prove that you and your staff have completed an entry each and every time you are in control of an EWP.

Simply put, the log book entry you are being asked to complete is to confirm that the individual about to use the machine, has completed an inspection both visually and practically, deeming the machine fit for purpose.

Apart from  the resulting positive confirmation of the machines suitability and condition, the use of the log book entry confirms that the individual in control of the machine has received instruction on its safe use. In addition if the machine is found for any reason  to be unserviceable,  the individual has completed the service section of the log book, to prove that the fault has been reported to the hire provider.

Log books are here to stay! We suggest you think of it in the same way you think about a seat belt in your vehicle. The law tells us we need to wear a seat belt, in the same sense, Best Practice tells us we must complete the log book each and every time we use an EWP. The consequences of not filling it in could result in a warning or personal fine.

Next month - Harnesses - when, where and why?

Be safe
