How to Handle Loads Safely

Whilst the forklift is in operation, do not raise or lower the forks. Loads must not extend over the backrest. This is due to the danger of the load sliding back towards the operator. Check for overhead obstructions and make sure there is sufficient clearance before raising a load. Stay away from overhead power lines. Once the load is lifted straight up, tilt it slightly back.

The lift truck is less stable if a load is in a raised position. Make sure that no body ever walks underneath the elevated fork. The operator should not leave the forklift while the load is raised.

The forks must be level when handling pallets, and high enough to extend all the way into and beneath the load. The fork's width should provide even distribution of weight.

Before loading or unloading the truck, set the brakes and chock the wheels. Floors should be strong enough to support the weight of the forklift and the load combined. Fixed jacks could be installed to be able to support a semi-trailer that is not coupled to a tractor. The entrance door height must clear the forklift height by at least 5 cm. Mark edges of docks, rail cars or ramps and avoid them.

Do not stay in a forklift for a long time without right ventilation. The interior of the truck must be properly lighted and free of trash, loose objects and obstructions. Inspect for holes in the floor. The installation of material which are non-slip on the floor would help avoid slipping. Clear whatever obstructions from docks and dockplates and ensure surfaces are not wet or oily.

Never tow or push other vehicles with a lift truck.
