How to Handle Loads Safely

Whilst the forklift is in operation, do not raise or lower the forks. Loads should not extend higher than the backrest. This is due to the possibility of the load sliding back in the direction of the operator. Check for overhead obstructions and make certain there is sufficient clearance before lifting a load. Stay away from overhead power lines. Once the load is lifted straight up, tilt it back slightly.

While the load is raised the forklift would be less stable. Make sure that no pedestrians cross below the elevated fork. The operator must not leave the forklift while the load is lifted.

When handling pallets, forks must be level and high enough to go into the pallet and extend all the way underneath the load. The width of the forks must provide equal weight distribution.

Prior to unloading or loading the truck, chock the wheels and set the brakes. Floors should be strong enough to support the weight of the forklift and the load combined. Fixed jacks could be installed to be able to support a semi-trailer that is not coupled to a tractor. The height of the entrance door should clear the height of the forklift by at least 5 cm. Edges of docks, rail cars and ramps should be marked and avoid them.

If there is not proper ventilation into the forklift, do not stay in there for extended periods. The interior of the truck must have enough lighting and be free of obstructions. Inspect the flooring of the forklift cab for holes. The installation of material that are non-slip on the floor will help avoid slipping. Clear any obstacles from docks and dockplates and ensure surfaces are not wet or oily.

Forklifts should not be used to tow or push other forklifts.
