The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in restrictions being imposed in workplaces .
Forklift Trucks are essential for the safe and efficient supply of goods and services in Australia.
Under Victoria Stage 4 Restrictions the repair and maintenance of Forklift trucks is essentially covered as:
Automotive, machinery and equipment repair and maintenance are permitted to operate where providing support to a permitted service or industry or where required to maintain the health and safety of Victorians at home or at work.
Regular servicing of Forklift Trucks is essential to ensure that they are in a safe working condition and therefore compliant with Workplace Health and Safety requirements. Therefore their maintenance and repair is a permitted activity.
