The purpose of this article is to guide users on how to add equipment issues to employees and vehicles. You can log which vehicle or asset has been assigned to an employee as well as smaller equipment e.g. company mobile phones, laptops, tools, PPE. An Equipment Issue can also be added to the vehicle itself, e.g. fire extinguisher, toolbox, first-aid kit.
