Has anyone seen the new Traka PDf file that has been placed on the VLH download links

Pay particular attention to page 15,

There have been a lot of instances were FLT drivers have crashed into the racking when the Traka system on the FLT's has failed.
The truck veers sharply to the left without any warning and as the truck has fly-by wire steering there is now way of controlling the truck.
The driver is then disciplined and banned from the truck.
 
The management maintain that there is not a problem with Traka and electronically controlled steering.

This file shows that there is a known problem

It has happened in Livingston as well, the brakes apply within .02secs and truck veers to the left>:(>:(
On 1 occasion it happened there was no-one around the operator in the aisle, he veered into the racking and ended up with a final written warning, so this info makes interesting reading, cheers baaar baraaa  ;)

Seen similair things happen at Magor, ranging from Traka failures to over voltage in the FLT battery (will cause the FLT to react the same).

On each occasion the TM investigating had requested a report from Jungheinrich. The FLT stores all fault codes and allows the engineer to print them off and these can and are used in any accident investigation. On both occasions driver fault was removed and both allowed back onto FLT with no recourse.

If in doubt your USDAW rep is entitled to see the engineer report and request one if not already done so.



Excessive speed has never killed anyone...stopping very suddenly does though

Any caught short in said circumstances may help themselves a little by showing the investigating TM a copy of this letter from TRAKA.

TRAKA H&S Notice.
