Hello, I have one question, recently there's been an accident in one of ours sister companies (pure neglect)  and our companies safety office,  made a prevention by altering Back rest frame making it wide as a pallet so that way they can prevent drivers to lift and lower the forks while inside drive in racking. I'm all for safety myself but, by altering that backload frame they made our life miserable, because now the frame is too wide and we have troubles when loading and moving around in small cramped areas, not to mention the damages on trucks, pallets, etc. Please can anybody shed some light on this situation if that alteration is ok according to safety measures etc. Thank you in advance.

If you are meaning the driver gets off the forklift while in racking and raises or lowers the hydraulics while not on the seat, how about a seat switch and solenoids on the hydraulics? If the driver gets off the seat, the hydraulics wouldn't function. Then you could use the original sized load backrest.

If the machine has been altered from standard in anyway you need manufacturer approval. All MHE equipment sold in the EU has passed type approval before it is passed safe to supply to end users. Any change to the truck specification cannot be carried out without prior approval of the manufacturer

If the machine has been altered from original in anyway you need the manufacturer's approval or the change has to be certified by an engineer. In short, your company's changes could cost a life or big dollars.

I have never understood why drive in racks that intrude into the operators area are permissible.  Operators have little space to operate as defined by the rear posts or raised backrest and allowing racks to intrude into that space makes no sense with respect to safety of the operator.
Clark ESM forklifts had reversible rear posts to allow for drive in racks but the operator has to lean away from the side of the machine to get into the racks.

Well, safety is something you can never compromise with. The preventive measure should be always taken.
