Essential Tips for Driving a Forklift

Forklifts are incredibly useful pieces of equipment and can be found in almost every plant and warehouse. Unfortunately, forklift accidents continue to be one of the leading causes of serious injury and death among industrial workers. Forklift accidents can also result in costly downtime and expensive damage. To keep your staff safe, and to avoid timely delays and expensive accidents, share these forklift driving tips with your forklift operators. If you have a lot of new and inexperienced operators, consider signing up for forklift training course in Dallas.

Know the Load Limits

To avoid a dangerous tip-over accident, it’s important that all operators know the load limits of the forklifts they are using. Operators should also know the weight of the cargo or materials to be transported via forklift so they avoid exceeding the lift truck’s safe operating load limit.

Be Aware of Overhead Clearances

When transporting tall cargo or materials that impede the operator’s view, the forklift should be driven slowly backwards and operators should scan for low hanging pipes, sprinklers, or door beams. The plant or warehouse supervisor should also point out overhead clearance concerns with new forklift operators.

Slow Down

When it comes to the safe operation of a forklift, drivers should always slow down when carrying a heavy load or when transporting cargo that obstructs their view. Operators should also stop at all intersections and blind turns and sound the horn to alert drivers and pedestrians.

If you want to make sure your employees can safely and effectively operate a forklift, contact Lonestar Forklift and schedule OSHA safety training and certification. We can provide forklift training for up to 100 of your employees at your site or ours. We also offer the largest selection of forklift sales and rentals in Dallas and are happy to discuss your needs.
