BS 7121-4:2010 Code of practice for safe use of cranes. Lorry loaders

BS 7121-4 gives recommendations for the safe use of lorry loaders. A lorry loader is a commercial vehicle or trailer, fitted with a loader crane, which normally has a load-carrying capability.

BS 7121-4 includes guidance on:

  • Management
  • Selection of equipment
  • Selection and training of personnel
  • Procedures and precautions
  • Testing
  • Inspection
  • Maintenance
  • Examination.

BS 7121-4 should be used in conjunction with BS 7121-2, which provides general guidance on the inspection, testing and examination of all types of cranes.
