Checking your Fork Truck for Safety
Similar to any industrial machinery, the fork truck should be used with some care. However, unlike a car, steering is done on the rear wheel giving the equipment a different center of balance. Anybody working within the vicinity of a fork truck and anybody operating this particular equipment must understand safe operating measures and workplace safety guidelines.

Safe operation of a fork truck initially includes inspecting the truck prior to driving it. Operators should check for potential dangers such as fluid leaks and worn tires. The lifts, forks as well as the overhead guard must be inspected thoroughly. The safety handle must be utilized when the forklift is being mounted.

To ensure that they are operating right, the lights, horns and alarms must be tested on a regular basis while the guages and monitors may need to be adjusted. Safety belt should be fastened and seat adjusted before starting the truck.

To avoid tipping the equipment, take turns cautiously and always choose the low rate speed when driving. If the load blocks the operator's vision, the truck must be driven in reverse gear. Be alert of the location of any obstacles and pedestrians while driving.

The driver must always sit inside the cage enclosure and keep all body parts in the vehicle to prevent any risk of injury. The forks must be kept several inches above the floor when driving. Never lower or raise lifts while you are driving or the truck could become unstable. Do not allow anyone to walk under lift when the engines are running.

Stopping at intersections and watching for approaching traffic are basics for driving safely. It is really a great idea to sound the horn before proceeding as well as periodically when operating within aisles. That way, you would warn any approaching person to your presence.
