Safe Use of Remotes Reminder

The importance of adopting key safety rules and procedures when using remotes was further highlighted recently, following reports of two accidents concerning lorry loaders with this control type.  

Incidents such as this, coupled with the ever-increasing demand for lorry loaders with remote controls (accounting for nearly 60% of sales according to ALLMI's 2017 market statistics report), emphasise the importance of ALLMI's guidance material on this subject, which is freely available to all industry stakeholders via the ALLMI website and Smartphone App.  This includes:

ALLMI Technical Manager, Keith Silvester, comments "The many benefits that remote controls bring to lorry loader operation are quite apparent, and clearly these are the key factors behind their increasing popularity.  However, as ALLMI has reported many times in the past, safe working practices for remotes must be followed if potential hazards are to be avoided.  For this reason, we would urge industry stakeholders to obtain a copy of ALLMI's material on this subject if they have not already done so, as the adoption of its content will greatly assist operators in carrying out their tasks safely."
