The General guide for industrial lift trucks provides information about managing health and safety risks for people who carry out activities involving industrial lift trucks.
This Guide is supported by an information sheet for owners and operators of forklifts.
The word ‘should’ is used in these documents to indicate a recommended course of action, while ‘may’ is used to indicate an optional course of action.
The words ‘must’, ‘requires’ or ‘mandatory’ indicate that a legal requirement exists in the WHS laws and must be complied with.
