Review of Australian Standards. To keep abreast of progress in industry, Australian Standards are subject to periodic review and are kept up to date by the issue of amendments or new editi ons as necessary. It is important therefore that Standards users ensure that they are in possession of the latest edit ion, and any amendments thereto. Full details of all Australi an Standards and related publications will be found in the Standards Australia Catalogue of Publications; this information is supplemented each month by the magazine The Australian Standard, which subscribing members receive, and which gives details of new publi cati ons, new editi ons and amendments, and of withdrawn Standards. Suggesti ons for improvements to Australi an Standards, addressed to the head offi ce of Standards Australi a, are welcomed. Noti fi cati on of any inaccuracy or ambiguity found in an Australian Standard should be made without delay in order that the matter may be investigated and appropriate action taken.

This Standard was issued in draft form for comment as DR 0106 X.

LOGBOOK FORMAT
(Informative) B1 GENERAL This Clause sets out a typical logbook format, suitable for the inspection and maintenance of guided storing and retrieval equipment. The logbook may be arranged in three sections for clarity and convenience of use, viz: (a) (b) (c) Section 1 Section 2 Section 3 Operator safety check log. Routine maintenance and safety check log. Faults, difficulties and problems log.

In Section 1 of the log, the operator or other competent person should record the safety checks actually carried out. The safety checks should be carried out at the frequency instructed by management (e.g. daily, before use). In Section 2 of the log, the operator or other competent person should record the routine maintenance and safety checks actually carried out. The routine maintenance and safety checks should be carried out at the frequency instructed by management (e.g. weekly, monthly). Special checks and annual inspections should also be recorded in Section 2 with suitable notations. In Section 3 of the log, the operator or other competent person, should record all the faults, difficulties and problems actually experienced in the examination, checking, maintenance and operational use of the equipment (e.g. corrosion, cracking, missing bolt, controls, braking, positioning).
