FLTA launches best practice safety checklist

Nov 02, 2015
The UK’s Fork Lift Truck Association, in partnership with Mentor Training, has launched a checklist to help managers and supervisors overseeing lift truck operations to formalise and document safety procedures.

Managing Forklift Operations: Manager’s Checklist and Best Practice Guidance Notes, was formally launched at the National Fork Lift Truck Safety Conference in Loughborough on 23rd September.

Although practical resources allowing operators to record daily checks are widespread within the industry, this is believed to be the first resource specifically developed to take managers and supervisors through the essential checks necessary to maintain safe fork lift operations.

Mentor Managing Director Stuart Taylor said, “In creating this new resource, we looked for ways in which we could support the efforts of managers and supervisors in reducing risk and keeping operations safe. They play a vital role on site – directing activity and, ultimately, they hold responsibility when operations go wrong. The safety checklists give managers and supervisors a structure for their checks, starting with operators and equipment and finishing with risk assessments and policies.”

As well as a checklist, the pocket-sized booklet provides a range of information that managers might need during the space of a shift, such as important contacts, sources of further information and best practice guidance.

Managing Forklift Operations: Manager’s Checklist and Best Practice Guidance is priced at £3.95 and is available exclusively from Mentor Training and the FLTA.
