Caterpillar Rough Terrain Forklifts

Caterpillar Rough Terrain Forklifts

Rough Terrain Forklift Safety
The rough terrain forklift is meant for construction sites, where materials have to be moved around on unpaved surfaces. The proper and safe use of rough terrain forklifts is important to be able to ensure the wellbeing of both the driver and other employees at the work site.

Terrain
These trucks are made for rough terrain, but care should still be taken to be able to prevent tip overs. The forklift is top heavy and must only be operated on level ground when lifting.

Speed
Even if there are no Occupational Safety and Health Administration regulations governing forklift speed restrictions, forklift drivers should drive at a safe speed every time. Driving on uneven or rough terrain requires even more caution. Steering, particularly, could be really risky at faster speeds.

Incline
Keep the load on the uphill side of the machinery if operating on a slope. The rule of thumb is drive up, and then back down. Do not attempt to lift a load when operating on a sloped surface. The change in the center of gravity can cause the machine to tip over.

Safety Devices
Operators of forklifts should always wear seat belts like any driver. Make certain that the overhead guard is firmly in position. Depending upon the working environment, eye and hearing protection may need to be worn. Make certain that a working fire extinguisher is mounted on the forklift.

Weather
The operating conditions of a forklift can be affected by climate. Load handling, speed and turning may need to be adjusted to ensure safety when operating a forklift in rain, snow or ice.
