Checking your Fork Truck for Safety
Similar to any industrial machinery, the fork truck must be operated with some care. However, not like a car, steering is done on the back wheel giving the machine a different center of balance. Anybody utilizing a fork truck and everybody working within the vicinity of this particular equipment must know safe operating measures and workplace safety guidelines.

Safe operation of a lift truck prior to utilizing it would include a visual inspection. Fluid leaks and worn tires are potential dangers that an operator has to inspect. The forks, lifts as well as the overhead guard must be inspected carefully. The safety handle must be utilized when the forklift is being mounted.

To guarantee that they are operating correctly, the alarms, lights and horns must be tested regularly while the monitors and gauges might need to be adjusted. The seat should be adjusted and safety belt fastened before starting the truck.

Taking cautious turns and choosing a lower rate of speed would help the operator avoid tipping the equipment. If the load blocks the vision of the operator, the truck must be driven in reverse gear. Be alert of the location of any pedestrians and obstacles while driving.

The driver should always sit in the cage enclosure and keep all parts of the body inside the vehicle so as to avoid any possibility of injury. The forks should be kept several inches above the ground while driving. Never lower or raise lifts while you are driving or the truck can become unstable. Never allow anyone to walk under lift when the engines are running.

Basic driving safety involves stopping at intersections and watching for approaching traffic. It is really a great idea to sound the horn before proceeding as well as periodically when operating in aisles. That way, you will warn any approaching person to your presence.
