The 2015 update to the Australian Standard for forklift trucks significantly enhanced safety requirements, yet forklift trucks commonly exceed a lifespan of 20 years. Approximately half of the currently operational machines in Australia are pre 2015 and therefore are not compliant with the current standard. .

This session will delve into the obligations for PCBUs to enhance safety standards of older machines, practical upgrades for such equipment, and the unique maintenance challenges requiring consideration.
