Doc 165 17 Safe Operation with Fork Lift Trucks

Safe operation with fork lift trucks

EIGA Doc 165/17 Rev. doc. 165/10

The publication is intended to be used by those who are involved in and manage the selection, operation and maintenance of fork lift trucks.

Forklift trucks and mechanically operated pallet trucks are becoming increasingly important elements in mechanical handling practices, as the gases industry seeks to improve safe working conditions and reduce manual handling practices.

In recent years the number of forklifts and mechanically operated pallet trucks has increased as a result of this search for greater efficiency and safer work practices but incidents with these vehicles continue to occur on a regular basis.

The purpose of this publication is to help prevent and reduce the number of incidents that occur by making managers and operators aware of the hazards, and by providing recommendations on risk prevention, suitable maintenance practices and correct driver selection, training and assessment.

This revised edition has updated references and the layout has been aligned to match the EIGA publications standard.
