HAZARDS - SAFE OPERATION OF FORKLIFTS
Forklifts are a very important part of
material handling in many industries. They are also a source of serious
accidents. All personnel who operate forklifts must be trained and certified in
safe operation at least once a year. The training includes both classroom and
vehicle operation. Written and driving tests are administered by the instructor.
Here are some basic safety rules to remember when operating a forklift.
In general, observe the usual traffic rules and regulations whenever possible. These include:
-Park with the forks lowered to the floor
-Turn off the power and take the key with you, but not to your home.
