Over 50 Years of of Working to Improve Forklift Safety

AFITA (previously AITA)  has a proud tradition of supporting safety as evidenced by this  conformance plate  found recently on a 1972 Clark 2.5 Tonne  FLT referencing compliance with AITA Recommended Safety Practice 1969.

Other materials that have come to light recently include 1965 references to  AITA members advising state regulatory authorities that their machines were compliant with the Australian Industrial Truck Association Recommended Safety Practices for Powered Industrial Trucks  (in turn based on the American Standard Safety Code for Power Industrial Trucks ASA B56.1 (1959)).

So we have been in the business of promoting Forklift Safety for almost 60 years.

On another note the plate was on a machine believed to have been traded-in in the last 5 years – clearly built to last!

Thanks to Craig Williams, Engineering & Technical  Manager at Clark Equipment for the photo and the 1965 reference.
