Inspection program looking at plant and mobile plant movement

WorkSafe is undertaking a proactive inspection program to look at safety issues relating to mobile plant and the movement of mobile plant in retail and transport workplaces.

The inspection program will involve inspectors visiting retail and transport workplaces in Perth and regional areas of the State throughout the 2016/17 financial year.

The program will look at areas such as machinery guarding, safe movement of vehicles, forklifts, trolleys, storage racking and shelving, order picking vehicles, loading docks safety, vehicle hoists and isolation procedures.

This area of operation not only affects workers and workplaces, but also the general public with spaces in which pedestrians and vehicles interact.
