Forklift Use


The usage of forklifts and heavy mechanical lifting equipment is restricted to level 4 and level 6 exhibition halls. All mechanical machinery should be electrical; the usage of diesel and patrol vehicles within the Centre (excluding loading bays) is strictly prohibited.

For level 4 and level 6 halls, where service pits are present, forklift operators are required to move at a minimal speed. Forklifts are not permitted on permanently carpeted areas such as level 2 and level 3 meeting rooms. If the Centre has provided temporary carpeting tiles, the event organiser and contractor should protect the carpet as advised, see Carpet.

Forklift Operators

Forklift activity within Suntec Singapore can be undertaken by all contractors who comply with the Centre’s rules and regulations.

Suntec Singapore requires all forklift and mechanical equipment operators to be certified and licensed. The Centre may request at any time for operators to present their licence when operating machinery within the venue. The maximum speed limit for all mechanical equipment including forklifts is 5km/h. Seat belts and relevant personal protective equipment (PPE) must be worn at all times.

Forklift & Damage

Damages caused by any forklift or its associated load must be reported immediately to your Suntec Point of Contact.
