The purpose of this Safety Alert is to remind workplaces of the importance of conducting regular service and inspections for vehicle hoists.
WorkSafe Western Australia has been inspecting workplaces with vehicle hoists since a fatality in 2012. During the inspections of workplaces with vehicle hoists, WorkSafe inspectors took enforcement action by issuing improvement notices in relation to the service and maintenance of vehicle hoists – the improvement notices issued were in relation to lack of pre-start checks, regular inspections and servicing records.
