Forklift Speeding


We've all seen the carnage and devastation that speeding causes on our roads. Speeding is not limited to road vehicles and open highways, unfortunately it's prominent at the workplace and on many occasions it involves forklifts. A forklift is an extremely dangerous piece of equipment, and negligent operation can be deadly.

Why a Forklift Licence is not Enough



In order to operate most types of forklifts, operators must hold a high risk work licence, issued by the relevant work health and safety regulator. A common mistake among employers and operators themselves, is assuming that everyone who holds a high risk work licence is trained and competent to perform all types of forklift related work. In most cases, extra in-house, site and machine specific training is required. Operators must be adequately trained to perform the work they are required to carry out.

Forklift Approach Warning Light System

How many times have you turned a corner or a blind spot and been shocked or surprised by what's met you? In a warehouse environment, it's a very real possibility that next time you turn a corner you will be met by a forklift, a heavy and dangerous forklift that can seriously hurt you. A forklift approach warning light warns pedestrians and operators of approaching forklifts, predominantly when they are not in view.

Forklift Load Security

You've seen loads come crashing off forklifts before. You've seen forklift operators driving recklessly with the load hanging off the forklift. Unfortunately you may have also seen this negligent behaviour result in serious injury. Forklifts are designed to carry a variety of different loads. Loads can be heavy, awkward, odd shapes and sizes and slippery to name a few. A forklift's load can be just as dangerous as the forklift itself. Many accidents have occurred when the operator has failed to secure their load, even though they've taken great care while driving.
