Video Transcript

They're everywhere, call them what you will: forklifts, lift trucks, tow motors, powered industrial trucks - they are among the most common pieces of equipment in the workplace. What would we do without them. Imagine having to lift and stock all those heavy loads by hand. I don't even wanna think about it. But the thing is, this work course can also be dangerous. There are thousands of forklift related injuries each year, some of them resulting in fatalities. On one hand, forklift have the awesome power to lift and move the heaviest object, on the other hand all that power comes with the potential to do some serious damage. So the more you know about how forklifts operate the better equipped you'd be to stay safe and to keep those around you safe.

Let's review some key information. I know you may have heard it before but we can all use a refresher from time to time, right? We'll cover;

  • Forklift Basics 
  • How to Inspect Forklift
  • Guidelines for Picking Up, Traveling with, and Placing a Load
  • Rules for Parking a Forklift
  • What to do when loading or unloading a Truck, Trailer or Railcar
  • The essentials of charging a Battery or Refueling a Forklift
  • What you should know about Forklift Maintenance and Modifications

There's a lot to know but as a forklift operator you need to know it. All you have to do is look around and see that there are many classes and type of forklifts or powered industrial trucks. If you have operated a forklift before you know they're not like automobiles. For one thing, they steer with the rear wheels, the exact opposite of most vehicles and a concept that could take new operators some getting used to. Because they steer from the rear, forklifts can turn a much tighter circle than a car.

Speaking of balance, every forklift operator needs to constantly think about keeping their unit from tipping. A forklift works on essentially the same principle as a tidder todder, the weight of the load on the forks must be counter balanced by the weight of the forklift body. Simple enough, but how do you know how much of a load your forklift can handle. You also need to be aware of two other concepts: 

  • Center of Gravity
  • Stability Triangle

Just what is this stability triangle? Forklift use a three point suspension system that runs along in an imaginary line between the two front tires and the center of the rear axle. We've covered turning radius, combined center of gravity, the stability triangle, load center, controls, you've got the basic operating concept. Now a second closer look at the machine itself. No matter how busy you are, you're required to inspect your vehicle for defects at least daily before placing it in service or if you're vehicle operator on the clock, at the end of every shift. Given the heavy load that forklift carries even a small defect can lead to a serious crash.

Let's take a look how easy it is for forklift to tip especially when handling a load so lets look at some safety precautions to avoid troubles before you pick up that load. First, remember the basics, wear any required personal protective equipment. Set the width of the fork as far afar as possible under the load to evenly distribute the weight. You wanna keep the center of gravity, well, center. When you operate a forklift you always need to pay close attention to what's going on around you, that's especially true when you're travelling. Let's look at some general rules for moving and maneuvering safely. The first rule, the lower the load the more stable. It's maybe not in your job description but you need to make sure that the truck you're loading or unloading is stable and properly secured and the engine is shut-off before you begin. You're the one who's at risk if there's a problem.

How your unit is powered, you may need to refuel, charge or change battery or cylinder during your shift. This should only be done in designated areas and only by someone who's been properly trained. Do I need to tell you that no one should ever smoke in this area? The keywords;

  • Smell
  • Listen
  • Look

You can also use a solution. In addition to the daily inspections you conduct on your forklift, your company will have authorized personnel performed routine checks of preventative maintenance to keep the forklift in safe operating condition. Do your part, pay attention to how your unit operates.

Forklifts are powerful tools that do the heavy lifting needed to keep businesses like yours moving. They are also dangerous machines unless they are operated by skilled, responsible operators. It's up to you to know and follow the rules of safe forklift operation to avoid any problems that might endanger your safety or the safety of your co-workers.
