Forklift Agency Ltd

ATEX Forklift Safety Audit

APEX Forklift safety audit

The demand has surged in 2016 for annual forklift safety audits to be carried out on explosion protected lift trucks.
It is thought that the surge in demand is not down to the equipment dealers but instead down to the users of ATEX forklifts.
If a forklift truck is ATEX compliant, then it ensures that the truck is safe against an explosion from the first use however there are many factors that determine whether or not a forklift will stay safe. Factors such as general use, wear and tear, lack of sufficient maintenance or maintenance taking place too late can all contribute to a lessening of an explosion safety system over time.
As we have mentioned at Forklift Agency many times, regular and correctly carried out safety checks are crucial when it comes to safety and welfare and thorough maintenance and checks should be undertaken on a regular basis and all findings recorded.
Employers should be aware that it is a legal requirement for a business to ‘demonstrate that work equipment is designed and maintained with due regard for safety’ in line with the ATEX 1999/92/EC Directive.
Here at Forklift Agency we deliver training that covers the importance of safety and regular maintenance and the training we offer is health and safety approved. We provide training nationwide at a time and place to suit you.
