Overview

According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), someone is either injured or killed every three days due to a forklift-related incident. This equates to 95,000 injuries each year. Therefore, integral to the utmost safety and efficiency of a workplace is a complete understanding of proper forklift operating procedures.

The training video, Forklift Safety: Stability Triangle accordingly illustrates best practices for stacking and maneuvering loads up inclines, through slippery surfaces and around pedestrians. Specifically, it explains how unbalanced loads unseat the center of gravity between three "stability triangle" points on the vehicle. This aligns with OSHA's guidelines, which likewise assert that an enforced stability system can help reduce the risk of forklift-related wrecks and injuries.

Through incident reenactments, the program thoroughly explains stability triangle factors, measures for safely maintaining loads as well as general tips for driving forklifts.

When driving a forklift always wear your seatbelt, keep your hands on the controls and the weight of your load in check. Use this training course to teach workers the importance of the stability triangle and how their understanding is crucial to safely operate a forklift.
