Forklifts – General Safety Rules
Forklifts must be operated by experienced personnel who have received the necessary training and the appropriate or professional operator’s license.
- Check the forklift every day. Report all faults to the responsible persons. Do not use a forklift that does not meet safety requirements.
- Report all accidents and other incidents to management immediately so they can be investigated immediately.
- Do not allow passengers to be carried on any forklift.
- Before starting work, ensure that the battery stoppers, fuel tanks and their covers are locked in place.
- Check the load limits of the forklift and follow them.
- If there is a danger that another vehicle or workers cannot see the forklift moving, sound the horn before moving the forklift.
- Position the forks of the forklift as far under the load as possible. Drive with the load pressed against the rear stops, with the vertical frame tilted back. Make sure the fork spacing is correct to support the load.
- Do not carry cargo that is poorly folded or poorly packaged.
- Carry cargo as low as possible above the ground.
- Choose the driving speed according to the nature of the surface, the load and the workplace conditions.
- Drive in reverse if the load is blocking visibility ahead.
- Do not travel with arms, head or legs outside the forklift dimensions. Check the dimensions of the working aisles.
- Always be aware of possible obstacles overhead, especially when loading or unloading loads from above.
- Do not start or stop abruptly, and do not make sharp turns, especially when stacking loads.
- Keep a distance of three machines between the trucks (from the end of the forks to the front of the truck).
- Sound your horn and slow down when approaching pedestrians, doors, aisle crossings, overpasses, or other forklifts.
- Watch out for pedestrians. Do not drive close to people standing in front of an overpass or other fixed object.
- Slow down if doors, corners or inclines restrict your field of vision. Keep to the right unless factory conditions or site location require a change to this rule.
- Do not overtake another truck travelling in the same direction at intersections, restricted visibility, or other dangerous areas.
- Do not drive over dropped objects.
- Always know the position of the loader’s wheels about the edges of the loading docks, trucks, cargo carts and loading platforms. Be careful when moving backwards.
- Do not grab the steering wheel if your hands or gloves are covered in grease or are slipping off.
- Mark work areas and driveways with yellow lines.
- Install mirrors and/or stop signals near hazardous doors, walkways and work areas. Sound your horns as you approach them.
- Park the truck with the controls in neutral, on the brakes and with the forks in the low position with the engine off.
- Do not allow anyone to stand, pass or work under the lifting forks.
- Use only a tested and approved people platform securely attached to the forks for lifting people.
- Keep an eye on mirrors at corners. Always be ready to stop. Give sound signals.
- Never lift people on the forks of a forklift, but only in a tested and approved people-lift basket securely attached to the forklift.
