Be Alert When Using a Forklift Truck
A lift truck is a huge piece of machine and therefore safety precautions should be taken when using these kinds ofthese types of trucks. Operators of forklifts are required by law to be trained and certified to utilize the equipment. Anyone who misuses a lift truck truck can be charged with an offence. Misuse of this potentially dangerous equipment can result in death or serious injury. Safe operation of a forklift truck includes paying attention both to what is happening inside the vehicle and to what is happening around the vehicle. Not different to driving a car, operating a forklift requires being alert of pedestrians and other vehicles and keeping your attention on the road.

Essential forklift driving tips
Worksite accidents are all too common. Nevertheless, numerous accidents are preventable by minimalizing the risks while working with dangerous and heavy equipment.

Rough surfaces and drops are commonly encountered while driving a lift truck as the majority of operating surfaces are somewhat uneven and rough. The biggest hazards are pot holes, bumps, dock platforms, dock bridges, ramps and inclines. Forklifts are designed to deal with surfaces which are rough, but it is up to the operator to watch out for these hazards to keep control of the truck.

Visibility is amongst the important factors in lift truck mishaps. The operator is responsible for ensuring clear visibility when utilizing a lift truck by inspecting that mirrors are positioned properly and that all windows are unobstructed and clean. If a load is positioned in such a way that it obscures visibility for the operator, then the operator needs to put the lift truck in reverse and carefully back down the ramp.

Operators are required by law to make certain that every day inspections are made to the forklift and its components. Weekly, more thorough inspections should also be done. The engine, brakes, tires, forks and the rest should always be tested in order to ensure that they are correctly working. Proper testing can help to prevent injury and mishaps.
