Clark Outdoor Forklifts

Clark Outdoor Forklifts

Forklifts play an important role within the distribution of goods. They can efficiently move product through the distribution process. Nonetheless, they should be utilized carefully. Improper use of forklifts can cause damage to products, injury to employees, and serious accidents causing death.

Safety
If you utilize a forklift properly, it is fairly safe. Tens of thousands of people are seriously injured in forklifts accidents on a yearly basis. Dozens are killed in workplace accidents involving forklifts. The tragedy is that nearly all of these accidents are preventable with proper training and attention to safety.

Types of Machinery
Forklift operators must be trained on the specific type of forklift they will be utilizing on the job. A popular kind used within warehouse and distribution centers is the sit-down model. Other kinds of forklifts normally utilized within industry consist of narrow aisle trucks, operator up units and rough terrain units.

Operator Requirements
A forklift operator certification that covers both classroom study and practical evaluations is required by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration or OSHA. The three-year certification is not transferable; if changing employers, operators should become recertified.

Load Capacities
Standard forklifts have a load capacity of 1,800 kilograms to 2,200 kilograms. Higher load capacities up to and over 9,000 kilograms are available in some units. A forklift's load capacity will depend on the unit and its attachments and options.

History
Forklifts were first developed by Clark and by Yale, leading companies within the international forklift business. Ever since the forklift was developed in the 1920s, it has undergone many technological advances, mostly leading to the efficient and safe movement of product and enhancements in operator safety.
