FLT Thorough Inspection LOLER Examinations

How often should your lifting equipment be inspected under LOLER?

Employers are often lead to believe that if there forklift truck has been serviced this covers them under LOLER (Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations). In fact this is not the case.

Yes, having your forklift services and regularly maintained will help when it comes to LOLER inspections. however, what employers need to realise is that they are different.

Thorough Inspection of lifting equipment should take place annually if the equipment is lifting stock and biannually (every 6 months) when lifting people.

Here at InLine Training we are happy to help with Thorough Inspections and can advise on how regularly these should take place for your equipment.

A set of guidelines for employers is available for you to download here 

For more information, please send your enquiry to info@inlinetraining.co.uk

Forklift Focus-Pre Use Checks

Don’t forget to checkout our range of forklift training courses.

Here at InLine Training we believe that ALL operators of forklift trucks have a duty of care to ensure that their equipment is checked at the start of each shift. Conducting a thorough Pre Shift Check can help reduce the number of forklift truck related incidents occurring as a result of mechanical failure.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) estimates that as much as 18% of forklift incidents happen as a result of mechanical breakdown / Failure through lack of proper equipment maintenance. These incidents may have been avoided had a proper pre use check systems been in place.

Our instructors often arrive onsite to see that the employer has no Pre Use Check system in place. This is where we come in. Here at InLine Training ALL of our forklift truck courses cover the importance of Pre Shift Checks. We work with our clients to educate not just operators of forklift trucks but also managers and supervisors providing knowledge of what should be checked and why.

For more information about Pre Use Check Systems and Training please contact training@inlinetraining.co.uk

Forklift Focus- Drive In Racking

This Week In Forklift Focus- Drive In Pallet Racking.

 

Drive in pallet racking is designed to maximise warehouse storage density, allowing some warehouses to increase storage capacity by 60%-80% over traditional APR racking (Adjustable Pallet Racking).

Pallets within a drive in system are stored using guide rails allowing counterbalance forklift trucks to enter these storage lanes to deposit pallets. This type of racking is widely used within in industries that require greater stock rotation such as food and drinks manufacturing.

Here at InLine Forklift Training we can offer job specific familiarisation training for forklift operators who haven’t used drive in racking systems before. This course is geared towards the experienced counterbalance forklift operator and can only be completed onsite at facilities with drive in storage racking systems.

Forklift Safety

Our Top Tips On #Forklift #Safety

Unfortunately we cannot control or predict the actions of others. Creating a safe working environment and promoting general awareness around the safety of forklift operations often helps reduce the number of accidents within the workplace.

At InLine Forklift Training we have many years’ experience of working with forklift operators’ helping to reduce workplace accidents and too keep your operators and workers safe. We have put together a few sensible precautions that forklift truck operators can take to help minimise the risk of accidents within the workplace:

  1. Ensure forklift operators are completing pre use checks to the equipment they are using. Properly maintained equipment equals a safer working environment from everyone and reduces the risk of accidents.

 

  1. As part of your pre use checks ensure that the forklift trucks Horn and Klaxon are working and can be heard by your colleagues. These important safety devices should never be switched off.

 

  1. Take care when operating forklift trucks. Make sure you are operating at a speed consistent to the working environments and within the designated areas. Never cut across pedestrian walkways and always use the lift trucks horn at blind corners.

 

  1. Stay alert whilst using any material handling equipment. Many accidents can be avoided by maintain good all round observations at all times. Never use mobile devices whilst operating a lift truck.

 

  1. When working with delivery drivers whether internal or external, make sure that you are both aware of what the other is doing. Clear communication is key to getting the job done safely.
