This year, a few major changes were made to the Australian Standards of the manufacturing of forklifts. The blog today not only discusses these changes but also when they must be complied with by the forklift manufacturing industry and how you can overcome these changes if you have a forklift which doesn’t comply to the new safety standards.
Slips, trips and falls can happen in any workplace.
