Vehicle Safety Pre-Checks

Vehicle daily checks are a simple and effective way to spot potentially dangerous issues or defects before vehicles are used. Employers and self employed people should have a system of routine daily checks in place to ensure that vehicles are in good working order, safe and fit for purpose at the start of each working day or work shift.

The Health and Safety Authority, Road Safety Authority and An Garda Síochána have developed resources to help employers manage vehicle risks. They include vehicle check posters and check sheets and videos. To view the videos, click on the individual images below, to open the posters and fact sheets click on the hyperlink.
