                        Simplifying machinery fleet management with Plant Assessor

                        Simplifying machinery fleet management with Plant Assessor

                        Fleet management is a highly important role for companies with operations that depend heavily on the use of any type of machinery.

                        Safety is only one of the important challengers for fleet managers. Here at Plant Assessor, we provide the tools to simplify fleet management with our leading software platform. Find out how in this article.


                        Automated risk assessment processes

                        The process of ensuring machinery fleet safety is a difficult and complex part of a fleet manager’s job. Plant Assessor can effectively reduce the time you spend on managing machinery safety. The secret to this is Plant Assessor’s Machinery Compliance Engine (MCE) which contains over 120,000 makes and models of machinery, which does all of the hard work for you, from identifying the risks to recommending the most appropriate hazards controls, making your job much easier.


                        Assessments backed by legislation

                        Ensuring machinery is compliant in accordance with legislation, regulations, standards and codes of practice is a tedious and highly complex job. The MCE essentially checks all of the relevant Acts and other authorities such as standards and codes of practice that relate to your specific machinery items. The automation of this process can save you hundreds of precious hours that could be better spent on other aspects of fleet management.


                        Instant risk management reports

                        Plant Assessor risk management reports are compiled instantly upon completion of a risk assessment. The report contains important safety information for anyone working on or around your machines, including a record of all hazards identified by the MCE, the risk rating and residual risk rating, the recommended control measures and the date they were implemented.


                        Quick and easy daily pre starts

                        We all know that paper pre starts are horribly inefficient from the fleet manager’s point of view. The chances of maintenance personnel finding out in a timely fashion about machinery that requires maintenance or repair work from a pre-start check are somewhere between none and buckleys.

                        Plant Assessor’s Pre Start Plus app solves this problem. Digital, risk rated, machine specific pre-starts ensure that any faults on a machine are instantly identified and the operator advised as to whether it is okay to use the machine whilst the fault is present.  

                        Maintenance personnel can see machine status real time as they are checked at the start of the day or shift. In addition to this, operators can record machine hours which can be helpful in identifying and planning scheduled maintenance activities.


                        Auditable data trail

                         As a fleet manager, you know how important it is to ensure all records of machinery risk assessments, pre-starts, servicing and the machine’s history are securely stored. They need to be accurate and easily accessible in the event of an incident or a safety audit.

                        Plant Assessor facilitates the creation of an auditable data trail for every machine in your fleet. You can upload any documentation relating to your machinery directly to the cloud through our digital library functionality.
