You Can Avoid Becoming a Statistic

If you’ll just take the time to review forklift hazards and how to avoid them. Try to keep them in mind each and every time you prepare to use a forklift. ipping over and losing part of a load are the most common causes of forklift-related injuries. Some factors you need to consider include:

  • The capacity of the forklift – can it handle the size and weight of your load?
  • Any odd characteristics of the load – is it top heavy, cylindrical or awkward?
  • The condition of the forklift – are the forks damaged or is there some other problem that could cause an accident?
  • Where you are and where you are going with the load – are there any obstacles, bumps, ramps, people, cross aisles or narrow passageways to consider?
