Industrial trucks carry weighty loads and are an essential component for many industries. This Video On Demand explains how to safely use all seven classes of trucks: gas, diesel, propane and electric-powered forklifts with counterbalancing weights, narrow aisle lift trucks and order pickers, electrical powered hand trucks that operators walk behind or lead, tractor-like machines, and boom trucks. The video explains pre-use vehicle inspection and maintenance, safe refueling practices for electric and propane vehicles, and basic operating safety. Viewers learn the three-point mount, the importance of using a safety belt, how to respond if a truck tips, and proper parking techniques. Drivers get tips on when and how to drive in reverse, negotiate ramps and loading docks, and protect their co-workers from potential injury.

The video depicts the stability triangle while explaining proper load positioning, lifting and balance. The relationship between floor slope, load weight, height and vehicle stability is explained. The importance of tilting the forklift's mast back is emphasized. How to safely drop off a load is covered.
