Reversing alarms can be very effective in some situations - and very ineffective in others. Back-up alarms are necessary on many types of vehicle where the operator must reverse with his vision impaired. Many trainers and managers believe that back-up alarms are required on all forklifts. Canadian regulations state: "Mobile equipment in which the operator cannot directly, or by mirror or other effective device, see immediately behind the machine, must have an automatic audible warning device." This means that if an operator can see directly behind him, he doesn't have to have an alarm. What a great regulation - it makes sense in the real world.

If they use shoulder checks, as well as mirrors, when turning and driving in pedestrian areas, then they should be able to keep using those mirrors. - Read more -
