Caterpillar Rough Terrain Forklifts

Rough Terrain Forklift Safety
The rough terrain forklift is designed for construction sites, where materials have to be moved around on unpaved surfaces. The proper and safe use of rough terrain forklifts is vital in order to guarantee the wellbeing of both the operator and other personnel at the work location.

Even if these trucks are built for rough terrain, you still should be very careful in order avoid tip overs. The forklift is top heavy and must just be operated on level ground when lifting.

Operators of forklifts must always drive at a safe speed even though there are no Occupational Safety and Health Administration rules governing the speed restrictions of forklifts. Driving on terrain that is uneven or rough requires even more caution. Steering, in particular, could be dangerous at higher speeds.

Keep the load on the uphill side of the equipment when operating on an incline. The rule of thumb is drive up, and back down. Do not attempt to raise a load if operating on an inclined surface. The change in the center of gravity could cause the equipment to tip over.

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

Weather conditions could affect forklift operating conditions. Speed, turning and load handling may need to be adjusted to ensure safety when operating a forklift in snow, ice or rain.
