In the lead-up to Safety Month, Brisbane Markets Limited (BML) is holding a number of 45 minute workshops on the Brisbane Markets® Regulations and Forklift Safety.
While all Market users are invited to attend these workshops, we particularly request that Tenants encourage their forklift operators to attend, especially given the number of serious forklift incidents that have occurred at this site in 2017.
The Markets is heading into its peak trading season. It is therefore critical that forklift operators understand the traffic management plan for this site and the safety requirements associated with operating high risk plant.
We should all be working to prevent any further forklift incidents that occur due to speed, driving while distracted or fatigued, neglecting to look out for pedestrians or neglecting to follow the road rules and forklift operating rules.
The forklift workshops will be held throughout September and October 2017 in Training Room 2 on the Ground Level of the Fresh Centre on the following dates:
|Tuesday, 19 September 2017||9am – 9.45am|
|Tuesday, 26 September 2017||9am – 9.45am|
|Tuesday, 10 October 2017||9am – 9.45am|
|Tuesday, 24 October 2017||9am – 9.45am|
