Forklifts play an essential role within the distribution of goods. They can efficiently transport product through the distribution process. However, they should be used carefully. Incorrect use of forklifts can result in damage to products, injury to workers, and serious accidents causing death.

Safety
Forklifts are rather safe as long as they are operated correctly. Tens of thousands of individuals are seriously injured in forklifts accidents on a yearly basis. Dozens are killed in workplace accidents involving forklifts. The tragedy is that the majority of these accidents are preventable with attention to safety and proper training.

Types of Machines
Forklift operators must be trained on the particular kind of forklift they would be using on the job. A common type used in distribution centers and warehouses is the sit-down model. Other kinds of forklifts usually utilized in industry consist of rough terrain units, narrow aisle trucks and operator up units.

Operator Requirements
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requirements for forklift operators consist of certification involving both practical evaluations as well as classroom study. The three-year certification is not transferable; if changing employers, operators should become recertified.

Load Capacities
1,800 kilograms to 2,200 kilograms is the load capacity of a typical forklift. Higher load capacities up to and beyond 9,000 kilograms are available in various units. A forklift's load capacity would depend on the unit and its attachments and options.

History
Yale and Clark, the top companies within the global forklift business,were the first to develop forklifts. Ever since the forklift was developed in the 1920s, it has gone through numerous technological advances, mostly leading to enhancements in operator safety and the safe and efficient movement of product.
