Inspecting your Fork Truck for Safety
A fork truck, similar to any industrial machine, must be operated with care. Unlike an automobile, a fork truck is steered from the rear wheel and thus has a different center of balance. Anybody working within the vicinity of a fork truck and anyone utilizing this particular equipment needs to know workplace safety guidelines and safe operating measures.

Safe operation of a lift truck before driving it would involve a visual inspection. Worn tires and fuel leaks are potential dangers that an operator needs to inspect. The lifts, forks and the overhead guard should be inspected thoroughly. The safety handle must be utilized when the forklift is being mounted.

To guarantee that they are operating right, the alarms, lights and horns should be checked on a regular basis whilst the monitors and gauges may have to be adjusted. Safety belt must be fastened and seat adjusted before starting the truck.

To avoid tipping the machine, always choose the low rate speed when driving and take turns cautiously. If the load blocks the vision of the driver, the truck must be driven in reverse gear. Be alert of the location of any obstacles and pedestrians while driving.

The operator must always sit within the cage enclosure and keep all parts of the body in the vehicle to avoid any chance of injury. The forks should be kept several inches above the floor while driving. Never raise or lower lifts when you are driving or the truck could become unstable. Do not allow anyone to walk under lift when the engines are running.

Stopping at intersections and watching for approaching traffic are basics for driving safely. It is really a great idea to sound the horn before proceeding as well as occasionally when operating in aisles. That way, you will warn any approaching individual to your presence.
