If the lights etc. of fork lift trucks are included in the glass/brittle material register is one of my standard questions.
Of course you can use risk assessment to set the frequency of the checks on these items.
However staff should be aware of the risks involved in broken lights on FLT.
Most times when I find a broken light on FLT during audit, the reaction is very mild: "oh, he probably hit something, while duing his job. This is no big deal, all products (or raw materials) are packed here (e.g. in the ware house)". People should be aware that even if the products are alle packed and wrapped, the pieces can go round the factory by wheels, pallets, shoes, etc.
Damaged lights etc, should be reported and repaired as soon as possible and pieces must be searched for.
Another item often missing in glass registers are the covers of the lights in the loading areas of trucks.
Ofcourse this is low risk if all products are packed, but then again it is possible that pieces go to your factory.
Once I have observed pieces of brittle transparant plastic on top of a big bag, which hung above processing line to be unloaded. These pieces came from lights from loading area of vehicle.Go to the full post
