APPROVED CODE OF PRACTICE & GUIDANCE: 

APPROVED CODE OF PRACTICE & GUIDANCE Regulation 9 of the Provision & Use of Work Equipment Regulation 1998 (PUWER) The Lifting Operations & Lifting Equipment Regulation 1998 (LOLER)

PUWER: 

PUWER Regulation 9 of the Provision & Use of Work Equipment Regulation 1998 requires that: Every employer shall ensure that all persons who use work equipment have received adequate training for purpose of H & S, including training in the methods which may be adopted when using the work equipment, any risks which such use may entail & precautions to be taken. Every employer shall ensure that any of his employees who supervises or manages the use of work equipment has received adequate training for purpose of H & S, including training in the methods which may be adopted when using the work equipment, any risks which such use may entail & precautions to be taken, Plus extra training if the equipment is modified.

PUWER Regulation 26 of the Provision & Use of Work Equipment Regulation 1998 requires that: : 

PUWER Regulation 26 of the Provision & Use of Work Equipment Regulation 1998 requires that: That every Employer’s will ensure that employee’s have received adequate training on the equipment for purpose of H & S, including training in the methods to use there vehicle on the Public Highway plus using specialised attachments and how they would effect the vehicle, and any risks which such use may entail & precautions that need to be taken.

PowerPoint Presentation: 

ACOP Regulation 27 PUWER 98 Guidance 27 Restraining systems 360 For fork-lift trucks fitted with either a mast or a roll-over protective structure, you should provide restraining systems where appropriate, if such systems can be fitted to the equipment, to prevent workers carried from being crushed between any part of the truck and the ground, should it overturn. [Risk assessment shows that an FLT with a seated ride-on operator can roll over in use and there is a risk of the operator leaving the operating position and being crushed between the FLT and the ground, a restraining system, such as a seat belt, will be required. Restraining systems are also required on any FLT which is fitted with a ROPS for example a variable reach truck to protect operators from the risks of injury from 180 degrees or more roll-over To he effective, the restraining system should prevent operators or others carried from falling out or being trapped by the FLU' or its protective structure in the event of' roll-over. 362 There is a history of accidents on counterbalanced, centre control, high lift trucks that have a sit-down operator. Restraining systems will normally be required on these trucks u' protect operators from the risks of roll-over. Where restraining systems are not required 363 Substantial structural modification may be necessary older FLTs provided for use before 5 December 1998 in order to allow seat belts or other types of restraining system to be fitted. Under these circumstances It would only he considered reasonably practicable to fit a restraining System if the risks involved were of. a sufficiently high order to justify the necessary modifications. Where seat restraints cannot be Fitted, and the risks are sufficiently high, you may need to use another FLT which has a restraining system

LOLER: 

LOLER The Lifting Operation & Lifting Equipment Regulation 1998: deal with specific hazards / risks associated with lifting equipment & lifting operations. They replace most sector- Specific legislation on lifting to create a single regulation that apply to all sectors. Management should ensure that every lifting operation involving a lift truck is: Properly planned by a competent person Appropriately supervised ; and Carried out in a safe manner.

PowerPoint Presentation: 

ATTACHMENTS All attachments fitted to a forklift truck MUST have a Capacity Plate stating the Maximum weight the attachment can lift safely and the New Load Centre All attachments are classed as part of the load The new Capacity plate should cover the plate for standard forks so there is no confusion.

PowerPoint Presentation: 

The attachment Load Centre depends on the weight of the attachment and what it is designed to lift. Attachments Attachment Load Centre Standard forks Load Centre

PowerPoint Presentation: 

IN SUMMARY: Operators and Supervisors alike must remember that if any change in the Load to be Handled means that the dimensions have changed they must take into consideration the change in Lifting Capacity. THE FURTHER THE LOAD IS AWAY FROM THE HEEL OF THE FORKS THE LESS THE TRUCK CAN LIFT.

Thank you for your attention. We are now going to have a short Break. Keep thinking about the points you have learnt in the classroom. After the break We will now take a look at different Rated capacity plates on the Fork lift Trucks in the training centre

PowerPoint Presentation: 

How do you know when a lift truck will topple over? Question Answer You won’t know. A fork lift truck will not give you any clues as to when it is likely to tip over, it just goes over. The only way to prevent the truck from tipping over is to operate within the safe limits the instructor is going to teach you!

DANGER

PowerPoint Presentation: 

DANGER!

PowerPoint Presentation: 

FACTORS AFFECTINTG LIFT TRUCK STABILITY Lift Trucks overturn frequently and Operators are killed each year. Studies have taken place to determine the most frequent causes of Lift Trucks overturning and these are as follows: INTRODUCTION:

PowerPoint Presentation: 

10 Ways to tip a forklift truck over, forwards (Longitudinal) 1. Carrying an uneven load 2. Using forward tilt with a raised load 3. Not having the load against the heel of the forks 4. Traveling with a load raised 5. Turning with a load raised 6. Traveling down a slope forks leading 7. Harsh braking 8. Harsh use of the hydraulic controls 9. Harsh acceleration when reversing off of a stack 10. Rubbing the forks when reversing from a stack

PowerPoint Presentation: 

10 Ways a forklift truck can tip sideways Lateral instability 1. Turning to fast. 2. Offset load 3. Uneven load 4. Side shift not centered 5. Forks not evenly spaced 6. Side sloping ground 7. Turning with the mast raised 8. Turning on an incline 9. A live load 10. Traveling over uneven ground AND YOU CAN ADD OVERLOADING TO BOTH OF THOSE LISTS

PowerPoint Presentation: 

SAFETY MESSAGE If your truck does tip over! 1. Stay with the truck, on no account try and get off 2. Hang on tight to the steering wheel 3. Brace your feet against the foot plate. 4. Lean away from the point of impact If there is a seatbelt fitted to your truck WEAR IT it is there for your safety if the truck tips over!

PowerPoint Presentation: 

No one to whom this code of practice applies should be employed to operate a forklift truck unless they have satisfactorily completed basic training and passed the test of competence as described in this code. Forklift truck code of practice

Thank you for your attention. We are now going to have a short Break. Keep thinking about the points you have learnt in the classroom. After the break We will see a film on the use of Fork lift Trucks

PowerPoint Presentation: 

REFUELLING DIESEL & L.P.G LIFT TRUCKS INTRODUCTION: Supervisors are to ensure that Lift Trucks are only refuelled by personnel who have received the correct training. The following Safety Rules should be adhered to when refuelling Trucks

PowerPoint Presentation: 

DIESEL REFUEL OUTSIDE BUILDINGS ( preventing premature ignition of vapours given off during the replenishment process) NO SMOKING / NO NAKED LIGHTS ENSURE IT IS CORRECT TYPE OF FUEL DO NOT OVERFILL ( wipe up spillage’s) REPLACE FILLER CAP AFTER USE REFUEL AT END OF THE DAY ( preventing build up of condensation) ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS ?

PowerPoint Presentation: 

LPG REFUEL OUTSIDE BUILDINGS ( preventing premature ignition of vapours given off during the replenishment process) NO SMOKING / NO NAKED LIGHTS ENSURE THAT YOU PUT CYLINDER ON CORRECTLY THERE WILL BE A MANUAL HANDLING ISSUE MAKE SURE YOU DO NOT CROSS THREAD COUPLER REFUEL AT END OF THE DAY ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS ?

PowerPoint Presentation: 

BATTERY MAINTENANCE & CHARGING PROCEDURE INTRODUCTION: Although the cost of Batteries in relationship to the Capital cost of the Equipment varies considerably with different types of Equipment the average cost of a Traction Battery is approximately two thirds of the price of the truck. This fact makes it obvious that great care and correct Maintenance of Batteries is essential.

PowerPoint Presentation: 

CARE & PREVENTRATIVE MAINTENANCE W E T C A P S WIPE CONDENSATION ELECTROLYTE 1/8 Inch ABOVE PLATES TERMINALS - TIGHTNESS CRACKS - NOT PRESENT AIR VENTS (OBSTRUCTIONS) PRESERVATIVE - PETROLEUM JELLY SECURITY It does not mean that these 7 (Severn) checks must be done in this order, however these checks must be carried out on a daily basis by all Trained Operators ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS ?

PowerPoint Presentation: 

ENSURE THAT the power supply is turned OFF before handling the leads or connections

PowerPoint Presentation: 

BATTERY CHARGING PROCEDURE CHECK THAT THE CHARGER IS THE CORRECT ONE FOR YOUR EQUIPMENT PARK THE TRUCK WELL WITHIN REACH OF THE CHARGER LEAD ENSURE THAT THE CHARGER IS SWITCHED OFF ALSO AT THE MAINS CONNECT THE CHARGER PLUG TO THE BATTERY (not to the Equipment Motor) SET CLOCK TIMER AND TYPE OF CHARGE SWITCH ON AT THE MAINS CHECK AMMETER (50-53 Amps) AVOID OVER CHARGING ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS ?

PowerPoint Presentation: 

ON COMPLETION OF CHARGING CHECK THAT THE BATTERY IS CHARGED (Look at the ammeter) SWITCH OFF AT CHARGER AND THEN THE MAINS DISCONNECT FROM CHARGER ENSURE THAT CHARGER LEAD IS COILED UP SAFETY You must Ensure that whilst carrying out Battery Maintenance or Charging that the correct PPE is worn. In addition any Spilt Battery Acid must must be cleaned away with SAND or CRUSHED LIME STONE ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS ?

PowerPoint Presentation: 

HYDROMETER READINGS INTRODUCTION: Hydrometer readings must be taken at the start of the day or shift in order to determine the amount of charge in each cell. As the Specific Gravity (SG) of the Electrolyte falls as the battery is discharging, the measurement of the SG by means of a hydrometer is the most accurate method of determining the state of charge. SG Readings should indicate the following:

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Battery Care Ensure the top of the battery is kept clean and that all connections are covered up. Inspect the acid levels on a regular basis and top up the cells when required ALWAYS wear the PPE provided when handling the batteries and only use non-metallic utensils

PowerPoint Presentation: 

IN SUMMARY: It is very important that Batteries are maintained correctly in order that the Lift Truck can be used effectively, loss of a Lift Truck for a number of days could mean loss of Production, Money, Time and it is a costly exercise. ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS ?

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Thank you for your attention. We are now going to have a short Break. Keep thinking about the points you have learnt in the classroom. After the break We will see a film on the use of Fork lift Trucks

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Revising on what has Been taught so far On the course.

PowerPoint Presentation: 

A lift truck must be driven at a speed relevant to the type of load being carried and the conditions in which it is being carried. NOT at a speed to keep up with The pressure of work

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Code of practice continued Park the truck with the forks resting on the ground with the mast/forks tilted forwards and the handbrake applied Always park ensuring the truck does not obstruct doorways, fire exits, and general access. If a fault occurs on your truck, park in a safe place and report it to your supervisor.

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Not like this!

PowerPoint Presentation: 

When travelling on level ground the forks should be 4 - 6 inches or 150mm from the ground with the mast/forks tilted back 4 - 6 inches

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Code of practice continued Report any dangerous stacks, also any accidents involving goods, racking, or the truck to the supervisor

PowerPoint Presentation: 

ALWAYS FACE THE DIRECTION OF TRAVEL

PowerPoint Presentation: 

NEVER ALLOW ANYONE UNDERNEATH THE FORKS OR LOAD

PowerPoint Presentation: 

WHEN LOADED, ALWAYS TRAVEL UP A RAMP LOAD LEADING AND DECEND LOAD TRAILING.

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Never raise a load whilst in motion

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Before raising the forks high, check for overhead obstructions .

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Before setting down any load, make sure that the base on which the load is to be placed is strong enough to support the weight being imposed upon it.

PowerPoint Presentation: 

When lifting metal stillages, space the Fork arms as wide as possible to reduce The chance of the load slipping sideways.

PowerPoint Presentation: 

NEVER push or bump loads or stacks into position.

PowerPoint Presentation: 

If you are handling pallets containing small items such as nuts and bolts protective head gear should be worn

PowerPoint Presentation: 

The overhead guard is designed to protect the operator from objects weighing no more than the maximum safe load the truck can lift.

PowerPoint Presentation: 

NEVER Raise anyone up on the forks or a pallet! Only use a recognised safety cage in conjunction with the safe procedures

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Safety cage design Front view Side view

PowerPoint Presentation: 

KEEP all parts of the body within the confines of the truck and away from the mast. If a large load obscures your view TRAVEL IN REVERSE

PowerPoint Presentation: 

ALWAYS cross ridges, railway lines etc. SLOWLY and DIAGONALLY

Lift Trucks and the Road Traffic act: 

Lift Trucks and the Road Traffic act The lift truck must be properly insured. Operator must have hold a full car driving license and relevant lift truck operators certificate The operator must be at relevant minimum legal age up to 3.5 tonnes in weight. The operator must be at relevant 18 years of age to operate a lift truck up to 7.5 tonnes in weight. The operator must be 21 or over to operate a lift truck up to 7.5 tonnes in weight.

PowerPoint Presentation: 

The truck must driven in compliance with the highway code and local authority rules and regulations for the area. The truck may not be operated more than a 1000 road yards from the Companies premises. When on the public highway the forks must be covered (pallet or load on the forks) or be removed Visual warning beacon must be activated. The operator must not be over the legal alcohol limit.

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Loading pallets into a racking system This is the correct way to place a pallet onto the beams as all the weight is transferred down through the blocks This pallet is placed incorrectly, as both ends of the pallet are resting on the lower slats, which are the weakest points of a pallet 1000mm 1200mm

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Standard Free Standing Racking Systems are usually 240mm longer than two standard British Pallets to make stacking Easier and safer. 80mm space at each end and in the middle

PowerPoint Presentation: 

The vehicle should be parked in an accessible area on firm level ground Unloading/loading vehicles. Inform the driver of your intentions to load/unload the vehicle UGG!

PowerPoint Presentation: 

When loading a full load onto a vehicle start up against the vehicle headboard on one side, then load evenly side to side. Ensure that the vehicle/trailer brakes are applied As shown below 1 2 3 4 5 7 6 8 10 9 11 12 14 13 15 16 18 17 Check the vehicle bed for damage

PowerPoint Presentation: 

When loading a trailer without a unit attached, first place some weight over the trailer wheels to prevent the trailer tipping forwards. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 If you have to load through the back doors then a purpose built support needs to be placed under the front of the trailer.

PowerPoint Presentation: 

If it necessary to drive onto or into a vehicle, check it’s suitability to support the lift trucks weight and internal height clearance. When unloading unknown or large items ensure that the load is within the trucks safe lifting capacity.

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Check with the driver the vehicles axle loading It is your responsibility to load the vehicle. It is the responsibility of the driver as to how the vehicle is loaded!

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Load the goods in the delivery order. Find out the position of any hazardous goods on the vehicle before unloading If there is an orange reflective plate displayed on the front and rear of a vehicle, that vehicle is carrying hazardous goods.

PowerPoint Presentation: 

In other words To operate a fork lift truck and NOT wear the seat belt a risk assessment must take place to assess the risk of injury/death in the event of a fork lift truck role-over Our advice is to operate safe and WEAR the seat belt at all times.

PowerPoint Presentation: 

ATTACHMENTS All attachments fitted to a forklift truck MUST have a Capacity Plate stating the Maximum weight the attachment can lift safely and the New Load Centre All attachments are classed as part of the load The new Capacity plate should cover the plate for standard forks so there is no confusion.

PowerPoint Presentation: 

Starting your shift. 1. Make sure you are fit for work. You can lose your FLT licence if found drunk in charge of a truck 2. Ensure your truck is in a Safe condition for the days work. Its your responsibility to ensure the Truck is safe to operate.
