Safety Tips for Operating a Forklift: Part II


Handling a Forklift

We’ve already discussed a few safety tips for operating a forklift, such as never overload and avoid speed, but here are three more useful tips.

Drive While Sober

Avoid handling one of these powerful machines while under the influence of medication or a drug. These may impair your driving skills, so drive while sober.

Wear Proper Clothing

Loose clothing can get caught up in the machine, so avoid loose-fitting clothes. Rather, wear fitted clothes accompanied with safety shoes, a hard hat and hi-visibility jacket.

Routine Check-Up

Before jumping behind the wheel, it’s advisable to perform a routine check. Ensure the brakes, steering, tires, controls and warning devices are properly working.

Remember, it’s better to be safe than sorry. If you want to buy a forklift or even rent one, visit Hi Lo Industrial Trucks Co. today.
