Inside Forkliftaction.com Contact the Forkliftaction team
This week, we report on another forklift rodeo. These events, while entertaining and fun, are important contributors to forklift safety.
They recognise skill and concentration, but they also act as important motivators. Most contests on which we report are the culmination of intense competition to qualify - first in the workplace and then in various semi-final events, each of which reinforces the safety message.
While we generally name the winners and runners-up, there are many untold winners - all those who benefit from the safety culture which the contests highlight.
So, well done to the winners and the organisers of all of these events. You should feel proud of what you are doing for safety in the workplace.
And finally, happy Thanksgiving to our readers in America and Canada!

"Hi We have a 2010 model efg 316 ac version which does nothing when key switch is turned on except brings in a small sw80 type contact in the back. The truck has an armrest with the levers and just below this is the dead man contact which is also k1 the main contact this is not energising.".

"I find the best way to check out a company is to ask for referrals. Although the prospective vendor is only going to give you customers that are happy with their service, calling those companies & asking questions that pertain to your circumstances will give you clues on which vendor is right for your specific needs.".

"The only occasion I have met when the wearing of a seat belt was not good was in a boat yard, where the truck had a negative lift mast to lower boats to the water and lift them out. When asked the question, I was with a H & S Officer, and he agreed with me that, provided that a risk assessment showed that it was safer to be able to get out of a truck that had fallen into the dock, than to be trapped under water when wearing the belt, it was better not to wear a seat belt.".
