Caterpillar Rough Terrain Forklifts

Rough Terrain Forklift Safety
The rough terrain forklift is meant for construction sites, where supplies have to be moved around on unpaved surfaces. The safe and correct use of rough terrain forklifts is vital to be able to guarantee the safety of both the driver and other personnel at the work location.

Terrain
Even if these trucks are built for rough terrain, you still should be very careful so as to avoid tip overs. The forklift is top heavy and should only be operated on level ground when lifting.

Speed
Even though there are no Occupational Safety and Health Administration rules governing forklift speed limits, forklift drivers must drive at a safe speed every time. Driving on uneven or rough terrain needs even more caution. Steering, particularly, could be very unsafe at faster speeds.

Incline
If you are operating on an incline, you should keep the load on the machine's uphill side. The rule of thumb is drive up, and back down. Never try to raise a load while operating on an inclined surface. The change in the center of gravity could cause the machine to tip over.

Safety Devices
Like any driver, forklift drivers are obliged to wear seat belts. Check that the overhead guard is securely in position. Depending on the working surroundings, eye and hearing protection may need to be worn. Make sure that a working fire extinguisher is mounted on the forklift.

Weather
Weather conditions can impact forklift operating conditions. Load handling, speed and turning may need to be adjusted to guarantee safety when operating a forklift in ice, rain or snow.
