‘Telesafe’ — for all Telehandler owners

January 29, 2016

Manitou Australia has introduced an innovative safety inspection program designed to help businesses maintain their telehandler fleet in line with current Australian safety legislation.

Known as ‘Telesafe’, the program aims to help business owners:

(1) meet their obligations in accordance with the requirements of Australian Work, Health and Safety (AWHS) legislation (AS2550.19), and

(2) secure the resale value of their telehandlers.

Comprised of annual inspections conducted by Manitou technicians within an authorised service network, Manitou believes the program will offer owners peace of mind by ensuring their equipment continually performs according to manufacturer’s original design.

Each inspection includes:

(1) a comprehensive 131-point manufacturer’s check

(2) AS2550.19 compliance check

(3) a compliance certificate

The program is also a record-keeping system that records inspection compliance history, automatically notifies owners in the lead-up to their next inspection and provides the necessary documentation for an owner’s records.

Manitou Australia has developed a website to assist owners with the ‘Telesafe’ inspection program at
