During the removal of office trailers, a fabricated attachment for a Skid Steer Loader was used. It was determined during a pause in work that Manufacturer's Documented Approval could not be immediately provided so the equipment was taken out of service. Lessons Learned: Personnel approved and designated for performing operational inbound and outbound equipment inspections should be knowledgeable of the mechanical and safety features, operations, documentation requirements and characteristics of the specific piece of equipment to be inspected. This knowledge should include attachments that are not part of the original equipment or attachments that have been fabricated or modified.
