澳大利亚采用提高驾驶员安全性的最新国际标准

发布时间: 2019-01-07 10:00:35   审校:睿智  

澳大利亚全国的叉车用户都将从最近采用的几项国际标准中概述的拟提高驾驶安全性中获益。未来12个月还将陆续推出新的相关标准。

经过各利益相关方协商后,许多工业卡车(叉车)的国际标准被采用为澳大利亚标准。能够采用这些国际标准要感谢澳大利亚专家以国际最佳实践为基础,确保这些标准在澳大利亚的实施。

“工业卡车(叉车)在澳大利亚各地有着广泛的应用,这些新标准的发布将主要关注那些优先考虑驾驶员安全的地区,”澳大利亚标准协会首席执行官布朗雯·埃文斯(Bronwyn Evans)博士指出。“澳大利亚的工业卡车行业是一个致力于安全性的行业,这些以国际最佳实践为基础的标准,是帮助驾驶员、操作员和维护这些车辆人员的优秀工具,澳大利亚社会对此抱有很高的期望。”澳大利亚叉车和工业卡车协会执行官苏·哈特女士说。

澳大利亚标准协会相关技术委员会ME-026工业卡车技术委员会一直努力工作,旨在发布由国际标准化组织(ISO)制定的关于工业卡车(叉车)的几项标准。最近已经提交几项,还有几项标准正在不同的制定阶段。

“澳大利亚在提高工业卡车标准的安全性方面处于领先地位,部分归功于我们强有力的WHS/OHS立法。这些改进包括为确保操作员使用安全带,所有平衡重型叉车都必须安装时序安全带;桅杆升高时,电动叉车必须减速以减少侧翻的风险。”澳大利亚标准协会技术委员会主席斯坦·帕尔默(Stan Palmer)说,他是澳大利亚相关工作的负责人。

“自2002年以来,澳大利亚一直参与工业卡车的ISO标准制定工作,并且在可能的情况下,委员会将继续采用ISO标准,而不是另行制定与工业卡车相关的澳大利亚标准,以确保国际标准在澳大利亚的采用。“

New International Standards to increase driver safety

Forklift users across the country stand to benefit from intended safety improvements outlined in several International Standards recently adopted in Australia with more to come over the next 12 months.
A number of International Standards governing industrial trucks (forklifts) have recently been adopted as Australian Standards following extensive stakeholder consultation. The International Standards adopted have benefited from heavy influence of Australian experts ensuring their application in Australia, underpinned by international best practice.
“Industrial trucks (forklifts) are used right across Australia for many different applications, and these new publications will focus on those areas that prioritise driver safety,” said CEO of Standards Australia, Dr Bronwyn Evans.
“The industrial truck industry in Australia is one deeply committed to safety, and these standards which are supported by international best practice are excellent tools to help drivers, operators and those maintaining these vehicles to do so at the high standard expected by the Australian community,” said Ms Sue Hart, Executive Officer of the Australian Forklift and Industrial Truck Association. 
ME-026 Industrial Trucks, the relevant Technical Committee of Standards Australia, has been working tirelessly to publish a number of standards developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) on industrial trucks (forklifts). Several have been delivered recently, with multiple standards still underway at various stages of development.
“Australia is leading the way in improving safety of industrial truck standards in part due to our robust WHS/OHS legislation. These improvements include the sequential seatbelt now required to be fitted to all sit-down counterbalance forklifts to ensure the operator is using the seatbelt, as well as the slow-down of electric forklifts when the mast is elevated reducing the risk of tip-over,” said Mr Stan Palmer, Chair of the Standards Australia Technical Committee responsible for the work in Australia.
“Australia has participated in the development of ISO standards for industrial trucks since 2002 and where possible, the committee will continue to adopt ISO standards rather than developing Australian Standards in relation to industrial trucks ensuring international guidance is brought into the Australian community.”
