DUE to a lack of awareness that annual inspection of gas-powered lift trucks is a necessity by Australian law, Crown Equipment has set up a dedicated, accredited inspection service.
The LPG Lift Truck Annual Certificate involves an annual examination and, if passed, earns re-certification under Australian Standard AS4983.
Crown Equipment marketing manager Craig Kenchington says many owners and operators of gas-powered trucks are not aware of this imperative in Australian industry.
"Just like your car needs a yearly registration inspection to comply with Australian laws so to does your LPG lift truck," said Mr Kenchington.
"In doing so, not only does it ensure that your lift truck is operating properly, it maintains optimum safety levels for operators and anyone else working close to the equipment."
A Crown yearly re-certification test provides the following benefits:
* A safe workplace environment.
* Assistance with Duty of Care responsibilities.
* Retune of a lift truck to ensure maximum efficiency of operation.
* A new updated plate on lift truck clearly showing last examination.
