FORS compliant daily HGV defect books enable efficient and reliable reporting of completed vehicle checks that ensure HGV fleets can be safely operated and maintained.
Drivers are required to complete the first use check of all vehicles they drive on a daily basis as part of their legal obligations.
JCS Transport Consultancy’s defect reporting books are also an effective way of keeping things organised in the workplace compliant with DVSA regulations.
The importance of quality defect books
It is a legal & mandatory requirement that heavy goods vehicles are maintained & kept in a roadworthy standard. Failure to do so can lead both drivers & operators to be fined or prosecuted & vehicles prohibited. At worst, badly-maintained vehicles can cause serious injury or fatalities.
The Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) stipulates that a driver must undertake a daily walk-around check each time before a vehicle is used.
Carrying out this check and recording it on a defect reporting book is a key part of the driver’s core role. Defects must be listed in a written faults report, reported to the responsible manager, and retained for a period of not less than 15 months along with details of the rectification repair work completed.
