Zero Tolerance Policy
At LTS we have always advocated regular maintenance and servicing of your forklift – for safety reasons first and secondly, to get the best out of your vehicle. To back this up we’ve recently become aware of WorkSafe’s Zero Tolerance policy for the unsafe or illegal use of forklift trucks.
The result of this policy is that forklift operators have to be fully compliant with occupational health and safety regulations and laws associated with the use of forklifts or they can face prosecution. Read the full article here.
Forklifts are notoriously dangerous if used irresponsibly or unsafely. This is where forklift servicing becomes a major part of any safety plan. We can provide a full forklift service where your vehicle is thoroughly examined, checked and overhauled to ensure it complies with safety regulations.
Never skimp on keeping your forklift in top condition. Firstly, you may save your staff injury, or at worse death, and secondly, you will save money in the long run by not having to deal with unforeseen downtime. We can also give you a checklist of what you need to check each time you use your forklift to ensure it is in top working order.
Comply with regular forklift servicing regulations. Don’t compromise safety.
