— when handling suspended loads that can swing freely, when using trucks on public roads, when operating in potentially explosive atmospheres, when using trucks in very narrow aisles with clearance of less than 500 mm to the racks, arising from a non-ergonomic body attitude when driving sit-on trucks, load trailing,
— during travelling with unladen trucks having a rated capacity of more than 10 000 kg, due to visibility concerns,
due to overload.
