Revisit your safety shortfalls over the last five years and schedule the appropriate training and refresher courses. Though you likely addressed the issue shortly after the original incident occurred, your team may now have new members or may have forgotten how important a particular safety precaution can be.

Let the Experts at I-80 Foklift Inspect and Replace Worn-Out Hoses on your Equipment

The Hydraulic Hoses on your forklift or man-lift are originally designed to act under high pressure and in hostile environments. At some point in time they could be near failure, in danger of bursting for a variety of reasons. It could be that it is at the end of their life -cycle under the best of conditions or well before that if they have been subjected to unplanned conditions such as abuse or when they get out of their originally designed position. They may fray or crack from rubbing against other objects during operation of the equipment. They may be near failure without any obvious signs from the untrained eye. This could present a very unsafe condition.

Make sure your equipment is inspected by experts and that if needed replaced with hoses that meet the original equipment manufacturers standards.

Fall Arrest vs. Fall Restraint



Falls are one of the leading causes of injuries in the workplace. As you work to mitigate the dangers of falls in your facility by putting safeguards in place, keep the differences between arrest and restraint in mind: Fall arrest means to be caught while falling and fall restraint means to be restrained from falling in the first place.
