CPA to launch telehandler guidance


At the Executive Hire Show in February, The Strategic Forum Plant Safety Group, which is chaired by the CPA, will be launching new guidance on the safe use of telehandlers in construction. Every year approximately 100 accidents involving such machines on building sites are reported under RIDDOR. The Group says that telehandlers are frequently regarded as a general tool to carry out many different lifting and transport activities, which may sometimes exceed the capacity of the machine, or of the operator, or both. Problem areas include visibility and awareness issues; overturning caused by travelling too fast; and lifting loads in difficult circumstances.


HSE is closely involved in the production of the guidance, as are principal contractors, specialist contractors, hire companies, unions and training organisations.


• JCB has introduced its Adaptive Load Control, a longitudinal load moment control (LLMC) system complying to industry


standard EN 15000 on all its Loadall, Teletruk and Telemaster models sold in Europe and countries requiring CE marking. The legislation has been introduced to reduce the likelihood of


forward overturning of a variable reach truck performing stationary loading or placing operations on consolidated, stable and level ground. Dependent upon the machine type, JCB’s system uses a combination of proportional or two-stage hydraulic cut-outs for the boom function, along with a number of other sensors monitored by an onboard control unit, which then adjusts the hydraulic flow to control the boom out and boom down functions accordingly. JCB says that the control overcomes the problem caused by a sudden stop creating additional inertia from a combination of weight and high reach, which can increase the risk of forward overturn.
