The new walk-around inspection simulator from CM Labs Simulations provides operators the ability to train on safety protocols and daily pre-use inspections using earthmoving equipment. 

Walk-around inspection is included on the backhoe, dozer, crawler excavator, and wheel loader.

CM Labs’ virtual Walkaround Inspection is an additional exercise included with CM Labs’ most used simulated earthmoving equipment training packs. 

The exercise includes hints and detailed information at each inspection checkpoint during the evaluation, according to the company.

“Operators-in-training need more than just a checklist—they need instruction and support on how best to identify equipment maintenance issues before they risk becoming safety and productivity concerns," said Davis Sieu, product manager for earthmoving training. "CM Labs scoring and randomized evaluation means trainees can continue to refine skills while companies can benchmark safety progress.

Scores from walk-around inspection are managed in CM Labs training management Intellia Instructor.  Independent Instructors can monitor via tablet both classroom and individual student progress.
