Each year, there are 37,000 forklift accidents in the United States, many resulting in personal injury or damaged goods. Safely operating forklifts is vital to productivity and competitiveness, as half the cost of doing business in the U.S. is moving materials. Use this video training to help forklift operators understand their equipment, conduct pre-shift inspections and operate the vehicle safely.
Learning begins with an explanation of the roles leverage, load center and stability/center of gravity play in operating a forklift. Inspecting the vehicle's mast, roller treads, forks, overhead guards, tires and wheels, monitoring fluid levels, and looking for leaks are part of the pre-shift checklist. Other topics include safety checks for electric and LP forklifts. Safe driving tips include stabilizing the load, appropriate follow-behind distance, turning tips, clearances and driving in reverse. Operators learn how to work on loading docks and ensure safe loading on trucks. How to properly stack materials and park forklifts concludes the training.
This training video helps ensure forklift drivers, forklift maintenance workers and warehouse workers are all aware of forklift safety, maintenance considerations, and the challenges drivers encounter on a daily basis. Being overconfident and having a "hurry-up" mentality endangers workers and causes damage to materials. Safeguard safety and profitability with this succinct training module.
