|Pictographic pre-start inspection sheets
|Whilst carrying out NVQ training work, it became evident that some candidates had literacy problems which compromised their ability to follow the company’s standard pre-start inspection sheet.
Sibelco UK developed more easily understood pictographic-based instructions, which have since been incorporated into operator handbooks for specific items of mobile plant.
The handbooks have been issued to all operators so as not to highlight any individual. They are also proving useful for operators for whom English is not their first language.
