There seems to be some discussion going on about this mixed in with other threads so I thought I’d make a new one about it.
I had an employee a few years ago that was notorious for forgetting equipment. I ended up printing out a job completion checklist and taped it to the dashboard of the truck. Since then I now make anyone who works for me do a final walk around the house to make sure we didn’t forget anything. Also now that I have a van everything is organized and has it’s own place. If something is missing it’s somewhat obvious (to me anyway). Every now and then something does get lost or misplaced, but it is few and far between now.
