Changing Tires Safe Work Procedure Checklist (Canada) Mobile App
The Changing Tires Safe Work Procedure Checklist is a safety checklist that covers the changing of tires.
How does it work?
Changing tires on a vehicle or machinery may be done due to a flat tire, worn tread, a damaged wheel or rim, damage to the tire sidewall, or installing new tires for specific conditions (snow tires, etc.). The procedure for safely changing the tires involves using a jack, loosening lug nuts, removing the tire, installing a new tire, and at that time, making sure that the valve stem is properly oriented, the tire is tightened, and lug nuts are properly placed. The jack holding the vehicle/machinery is then lowered, and the vehicle/machinery should be ready for operation. Tire pressure should always be checked on a regular basis, and tire wear should be checked.
