Inspecting your Fork Truck for Safety
A fork truck, similar to any industrial machine, must be utilized with care. Unlike an automobile, a fork truck is steered from the back wheel and hence has a different center of balance. Anybody working in the vicinity of a fork truck and anybody utilizing this particular machine should know safe operating procedures and workplace safety guidelines.

Safe operation of a fork truck initially includes inspecting the truck prior to driving it. Operators must check for potential dangers such as worn tires and fuel leaks. The lifts, forks as well as the overhead guard should be thoroughly checked. The safety handle must be utilized only when the forklift is being mounted.

The alarms, lights and horns should be inspected to guarantee that they are working well. Gauges and monitors must be adjusted correctly. The seat should be adjusted and safety belt fastened before starting the truck.

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

To avoid any possibility of injury, the driver must always sit in the cage enclosure and keep all parts of the body inside. The forks should be kept a few inches above the ground when driving. Never raise or lower lifts when you are driving or the truck could become unstable. Do not permit anybody to walk under lift when the engines are running.

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