Forklifts – sometimes called Lift Trucks – are a common sight in many workplaces, and often make the lifting and transporting of goods and materials much easier and safer.But without good safety practices and procedures in place forklifts can be very dangerous. In fact, forklifts are a leading cause of workplace deaths and injuries. A loaded forklift can weigh many tonnes, and do a lot of damage in the event of an accident. In addition, they are frequently less stable than many other vehicles.
This comprehensive forklift safety program covers:
• The main causes of Forklift Accidents • Pre-Operational Checks • Operational Checks • Getting on and off • Load Handling • Picking up a load • Setting down a load • Fault discovery • Speed and Stopping Distances • Traffic Management and Pedestrian Traffic
The objective of this program is to highlight the importance of operating Forklifts safely and by so doing, increase awareness of the standards for worker responsibility in observing and being active in daily safety procedures.
