Diggers, caterpillar tractors with buckets or blades, loaders with rubber wheels, dumpers, scrapers, graders and similar are regarded as loading and transport machinery.
The following must be ensured for these machines:
- Inspection according to the supplier’s instructions, but at least once every 12 months.
- Danish usage instructions must always be supplied with the machine.
- They must be provided with non-tip cabs.
Only people aged over 18 and who hold valid driving licences – or tractor licences, as a minimum – may drive loading and transport machinery.
Minors under 18 may only operate loading and transport machinery if this work is taking place in connection with training which aims to give them skills (e.g. as apprentices), and if they receive the proper instruction.
