Inside Forkliftaction.com Contact the Forkliftaction team
We’ve had a few safety articles recently, and this week’s Safety First column is augmented by a couple of reports of fines imposed on employers who failed to adequately ensure the safety of their employees.
Clearly, businesses have plenty to think about when they mix machines and people, and this week’s column identifies some niche requirements that may be overlooked for workers off the ground.
Yes, training is important - even vital. But it’s even more important that employers look out for hidden risks and take steps to prevent the unforeseen mishaps.
Rob Vetter this week talks about “the tragic toll” associated with certain types of forklift accidents. It’s a toll not only on the company’s finances, but also on the welfare of workers and their loved ones - and one we can’t ignore.

"Who runs Konecranes Lift Trucks and Container Handling Division? Have there been any management changes? Has anyone seen a Linde built by Kone? Are they successful outside of the UK? Has the Linde acquisition taken their eye off the ball or was the Linde deal a smoke screen to cover problems?".
CloseCall, United Kingdom
"First thing I would do is have the battery company check the battery and make sure it is in good condition, bad cells can cause this. Secondly there is a service bulletin out on how to adjust option #46 to compensate for battery sensing on older batteries that may be causing this condition.".

"I am in the process of deciding between a Combilift and Hubtex as a purchase. We as a company have always used front end loaders. No experience with a sideloader. Of these two brands, which would you advise to be the best overall in performance and durability? ".
