More about adding new Gear
- You can add absolutely any type of gear. Forklifts, fire extinguishers, ladders, computers, hand tools, company vehicles, your building etc.
- Each piece of gear should have a unique name then when you want to add gear checks or scroll through your gear list you'll know exactly what gear it is without having to open each gear profile. For example: if you have a fleet of company cars and they're all Toyota Corollas. It wouldn't make much sense to add in 10 pieces of gear each called Toyota Corolla, better to put in the registration number next to the gear name e.g. Toyota Corolla ARG934.
- It's a good idea to add photos of your gear, insurance information, invoices, warranties, manuals, check sheets,
assetand serial numbers. You can use our gear template to help you gather all the information you'll need.
- If the gear doesn't have a registration, serial or asset number then have a think about where the gear is located or who's responsible for it. For example: if the gear is used by John Smith and is part of his kit then you could name the gear in PeopleSafe Electric Drill - John Smith.
- If you find your photo is too large to upload you'll need to edit it first. PeopleSafe does not provide an in-browser document editing function. It only allows you the details about the file.
- Remember you'll need to decide what Gear Type your new gear item will be associated with.
- See our related articles for help if you need to create a new Gear Type or to understand the fields in a gear profile.
Gear can be edited at any stage.
