The DVSA has updated their leaflet with refreshed artwork, which helps remind drivers which checks to carry out and record on their daily walk around before the HGV is driven. You can download a copy of the new leaflet here.
With Truckfile, the process is made even easier with the use of QR codes:
Each of your vehicles are fitted with a number of Truckfile QR (Quick Reference) codes. These are etched onto scratch proof aluminium and are designed to withstand some of the toughest operating environments. To ensure that drivers inspect critical zones for compliance, the codes are applied at key inspection points around the vehicle. The content of the check can be varied for individual vehicles, specialised vehicles or assets. The driver selects a defect description from a pre-defined list when defects are found. The driver can then add further text and take a photograph of the defect, which becomes part of the report. To find out more about Truckfile’s driver walk around checks, you can see more here.
