Better Equipment Safety Promised by New Pallet Truck Tag
4th September 2020
With the new Pallet Truck Tag and Powered Pallet Truck Tag, Brady Corporation claims that companies can increase legal compliance, support better pallet truck checks and share inspection results on the equipment itself to improve pallet truck safety.
Increased legal compliance
Article 5 from EU Directive 2009/104 / EC states that equipment, which includes pallet trucks, should be reviewed regularly by an authorised person and that these reviews should be recorded in writing and archived. Brady’s Pallet Truck Tag and Powered Pallet Truck Tag make compliance with the directive a lot easier, claims the company, because they can be attached to pallet trucks for easy inspection and because they can store respectively up to 21 or 31 inspection results and inspector signatures on a removable insert.
Best practice equipment checks
On the reverse of each tag, an easy-to-follow operator checklist is included based on best practices to support quality equipment checks in order to achieve best-in-class equipment safety. Separate best practice checklists are available for pallet trucks and powered pallet trucks.
Visible on the equipment itself
Both the Pallet Truck Tag and Powered Pallet Truck Tag holders can easily be fixed to pallet trucks with a cable tie or adhesive. This enables all relevant workers to see the latest equipment inspection status on the equipment itself. A signature from an authorised inspector will confirm the equipment was deemed safe to use after inspection. If the pallet truck did not pass inspection, authorised inspectors can remove the insert, leaving a clear ‘do not use’ message on the holder, informing coworkers they should use one of the other pallet trucks deemed safe to use. Both the Pallet Truck Tag and Powered Pallet Truck Tag can be supplied in a variety of languages.
