The annual inspections in accordance with FEM 4.004 Guidelines on the state of maintenance and efficiency of forklifts and relative equipment, are aimed at ensuring all vehicles comply with the laws in force.
Legislative Decree No. 81 of 9 April 2008 (Legislative Decree 81/08), on health and safety in the workplace (and subsequent amendments – Legislative Decree 106/09), introduced an amendment to the legal obligations relating to the state of maintenance and the efficiency of forklifts and relative equipment.
In particular, art. 71 obliges the employer to provide workers with suitable health and safety equipment which is adequate and suitable for the work being performed.
MONTINI ensures that all the staff in its technical service network is fully trained and qualified (with relative official certification) to carry out periodic inspections to verify the state of maintenance and efficiency of forklifts and relative equipment.
MONTINI authorised technicians carry out thorough check-ups on all the forklift safety components.
At the end of the inspection, a report of the tests carried out is issued to the employer.
Once the forklift has successfully passed the inspection, the technician in charge affixes a sticker to the vehicle indicating when the next inspection is due.
