The Basics of Forklift Safety

Forklift trucks are amongst some of the most useful industrial vehicle types found in warehouses, workshops, and factories—unfortunately, forklifts are also amongst the most dangerous. OSHA estimates forklift accidents cause more than 90,000 workplace injuries per year, and about 85 fatalities annually. If you want to keep your operators safe and avoid costly damages and downtime resulting from a forklift accident, make sure your entire workforce (and not just those who drive the forklifts) are aware of the basics of forklift safety. This short blog post will serve as a good introduction until you can schedule proper forklift training for your employees.

Slow Down

Driving too fast can lead to collisions and tipover accidents. Under all travel conditions, a forklift must travel a speed that will permit the operator to bring the truck to a stop in a safe manner. The speed must also be reduced when negotiating turns and when driving on wet and slippery floors.

Do Not Exceed Load Limits

The load limit, or load capacity, is a measure of how much weight a forklift can safely lift. Exceeding the load limit will make the lift truck unstable and may cause the forklift to tip over, damaging the cargo and potentially causing serious or even life-threatening injuries.

Maintain Lift Equipment

One of the most important aspect of forklift safety is forklift maintenance. Poorly-maintained lift trucks are a danger to operators and pedestrians. Owners should closely follow the manufacturer’s recommended service schedule, and forklift operators should perform an inspection before and after every shift to identify minor problems before they get any worse and lead to a forklift accident.

In addition to being one of the premier forklift dealers in Dallas, Lonestar Forklift also provides OSHA forklift safety training and certification for up to 100 of your employees at our site or yours.

Spotlight on the Future of Hyundai Forklifts

Hyundai Heavy Industries understands that a forklift operator who takes pleasure in his work does a better job, which is why each and every Hyundai forklift is designed to give operators the most comfortable, intuitive, and enjoyable experience. But in response to changing industrial needs and operator demands, Hyundai is looking to make some notable changes in its future offerings. Here are a few things expected for Hyundai forklifts in the future.

Touchscreen In-Dash Computer

Taking a cue from the automotive industry, Hyundai is expected to incorporate a touchscreen in-dash computer in all 2016 internal combustion engine lift trucks and beyond. The 5.6-inch LCD touchscreen will provide operators with quick access to an array of important data and features. The in-dash computer will of course offer standard indicators such as speed and direction indicators, a battery-discharge monitor, and a clock.

Cellular Communication Options

“Hi-Mate” is Hyundai’s proprietary remote asset tracking and management system that gives you access to vital service and diagnostics information from anywhere in the world. Hyundai plans to introduce a cellular communication option to its Hi-Mate tracking system for better connectivity and improved remote asset management capabilities.

New Class 1 and Class 2 Models

As far as the actual Hyundai forklift lineup is concerned, the company is expected to introduce more lift trucks designed specifically for warehousing and distribution. In 2016, look for new Class 1 and Class 2 lift trucks with load capacities of 3,000 to 6,000 pounds.
