As with any mechanical handling equipment, standards are always being changed in an effort to improve safety.
A new UK / EU standard has been introduced for lorry loaders which requires Lorry loaders to comply with what is known as EHSR's or Essential Health & Safety Requirements.
This document sets a standard for harmonisation of safety systems in order to make lorry loaders easier to use as different manufacturers have, up until now had different systems.
It also sets out standards for operator assessment and ongoing training.
