Digital Pre Start Checks

pre start gif

A Pre start check is a list of YES/NO machine specific questions which determine if a machine is operating safely and efficiently. Pre start checks should be completed daily to identify minor issues before they become major problems.


Plant Assessor’s Pre start checks (e.g. above) are:


Machine specific – the comprehensive pre start questions are specific to the components of a certain make/model


Keep you safe – identify maintenance issues & required repairs


Digital – meaning you’ll never have to purchase another booklet


FREE – saving you approx $80 per machine (cost of pre start booklets)


Instant – after answering all questions you will be given an instant result
   –  Right to operate

   –  Right to operate, non critical issues require attention

   –  DO NOT operate machine, critical issues require attention


Shareable – email results instantly – prove compliance and get on site quicker

Corrective Action Management

Outstanding actions arise from questions answered in a risk assessment – eg low transmission oil level.

After completing a risk assessment Plant Assessor provides you with an instant outstanding actions report.


Action Management –

• Proper action management is critical to achieving the safest machinery and ensuring you have met your legislative obligation.

• Each risk control in Plant Assessor is a result of careful consideration of legislative requirements in each jurisdiction, Australian Standards, Codes of Practice, leading practice and diligent application of the risk assessment process including application of the hierarchy of risk control as per the international risk assessment standard.

• Use the actions dashboard (see image above) in Plant Assessor to monitor and manage completion of actions. Plant Assessor records when the action was completed, by who and includes a section for notes/comments.

Risk Assessments & SOPs

What is a Risk Assessment?

A Plant Risk Assessment is a documented, detailed inspection and review of the plant item against legislative requirements, Australian & International standards, and leading industry practice.

The assessment should follow the hazard identification, risk assessment and treatment/control process. It should result in the production of information which can be shared with operators and work groups to assist them to use the plant safely – this means clear identification of hazards, risks and controls in place on the equipment, along with information on how to maintain controls effectively. 


Why do I need Plant Risk Assessments?

For specific legislative obligations in Australia, see our comprehensive guide to Australian plant user and supplier obligations.


An easy solution – Plant Assessor

Plant risk assessments are often inconsistent, time consuming, incomplete and often do not apply the correct controls to manage the risk of each hazard identified. Plant Assessor simplifies and speeds up this process. Our technical team have conducted tens of thousands of plant risk assessments, the results of which are embedded in our smart software.


What is an SOP?

A Safe operating procedure outlines correct procedures to follow when using a machine. We provide SOPs for a database of over 100,000 makes and models of plant and equipment.

Service Scheduling & Recording

Plant Assessor recommended service intervals align with manufacturers requirements – every 250 hrs or 10,000 kms, whichever is applicable to your machine. (If the last service was over 12 months the machine will be flagged as overdue – even if it has yet to reach 10,000 kms or 250 hrs.)


Never miss another service – Use Plant Assessor to record and track routine service intervals for your machinery and equipment.

We help monitor and manage – A regular service schedule keeps your machinery/equipment running at peak performance. Plant Assessor calculates a service interval schedule for you – helping you keep track of regular maintenance
