RHA’s Tail Lift Safety Guidance

THE RHA has published its Tail Lift and Pallet Truck Guidance document to help operators reduce the risk of death and serious injury when palletised goods are delivered by vehicles fitted with tail lifts.
The guidance sets out industry best practice, and urges businesses to review their health and safety processes.
The guidance is the culmination of several years’ work by the RHA, the Association of Pallet Networks, haulage and logistics operators, and transport law experts Backhouse Jones.
HSE head of transport and public services unit, Harvey Wild said: “We believe that this guidance is an important step in improving the safety of tail lift deliveries. We have agreed to provide an endorsement of the document.”
