NT WorkSafe offers the following safety tips to people working under a vehicle:

  • Always use load supports or lifting devices with the appropriate safe work limit before conducting work under a vehicle.
  • All lifting devices e.g. hydraulic or pneumatic trolley jacks and load supports should have the safe working loads clearly marked.
  • Ensure workers are provided with appropriate information instruction and training to successfully complete the tasks without risks to health and safety.
