Because of their versatility, powered industrial trucks, forklifts or lift trucks are used at a wide range of workplaces, but because of unqualified and poorly trained operators accidents involving these vehicles occur.
With this step-by-step training video explore accidents stemming from improper use and storage of forklifts and how to avoid these situations with proper safety precautions. Safe forklift use starts with a qualified user driving the specific type of lift he or she is cleared to work with. The program explains how forklifts operate differently from other vehicles and their different and increased safety measures.
With forklifts, pedestrians and users are susceptible to accidents like being crushed between the truck and a solid standing object, being struck by material on a raised load, being struck when stored items become unstable, and injury while riding on a lift truck. The video shows a forklift's unique features such as telescoping masts, how they relate to the driving surface, trailers and rail cars, and specific safety risks entailed with these features and tasks.
The program graphically shows the property damage, personal injury and even death that can result from misuse, all while demonstrating how to avoid these situations with proper safety measures.
