Training for ex-forklift engineers
Published: 30 March, 2017
Safety company PYROBAN says it is advising companies that their forklift engineers may need new training ahead of the introduction of the updated EN1755:2015 standard for explosion protected forklifts in November 2017. “To remain effective and safe, explosion protected forklift trucks must be serviced and maintained by trained engineers,” explains Darren Boiling, group after sales manager. “All engineers responsible for Pyroban explosion protected equipment in the field must first be trained to ensure they are qualified to work on the specific systems, and then regularly retrained to ensure their knowledge is in line with current product standards and legislation.”
From November, the updated EN1755 standard for explosion protected materials handling equipment has amended mandatory requirements which apply to new forklifts ordered from June 2017, as well as forklift maintenance.
