Motorised Handling Equipment
Factories, warehouses, storage areas, transport terminals and mining operations use motorised material handling equipment to carry, lift, stack and move material.
Its power source, operator location and means of engaging power, classify the handling equipment.
Power sources include electric motors powered by storage batteries and engines using petrol, diesel fuel or LPG.
The categories of motorised equipment covered by this talk are:
1. Rider controlled high lift trucks
2. Stand-on rider controlled lift trucks
3. Walker operator controlled pallet lift
Almost FIFTY PERCENT of people injured by forklifts are struck by equipment driven by someone else. LEARNING OUTCOMES
