Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
There are always some interesting discussions on safety in our Discussion Forums. Often, however, they are about short-cuts from people interested in quick and easy solutions. As Danny Maron explains this week, some of the basics cannot be overlooked, and proper training is certainly worth the effort. His column looks specifically at preventing tipovers, and Danny argues that understanding a few facts is the key to success. So, let’s get back to basics - even if it takes a bit of time and effort.

"The multiple location system has been disappointing from my point of view. When needing service from these dealers, the central dispatching they use seems to always mean that the tech comes from the farthest location. When asked why I can't seem to get a tech from the closest dealer, the answer is "our dispatching software dispatches the next available tech regardless of their home dealership".".

"You're very optimistic for LiftOne as a company. Which is very good for an employee (manager). But surely you realize as large as they are now over so many different states, there will be very different and many obstacles to overcome.".

"The working hydraulics on many trucks is still operated mechanically/hydraulically. It means, that even when the truck is switched off and disconnected, you may lower the mast just pushing the lift lever. Murphy's Law says that for sure, one day, someone (probably unwillingly) will rest his arm on the lift lever while somebody else is just doozing below the carriage (HSF)....".
