Forklift Safety Tips & Guidelines
Each and every year, there are about 20,000 cases of accidents that are related to utilizing forklifts within the United States alone. And every year approximately 100 deaths are attributed to forklift accidents. Fortunately, correct training concerning maintenance and operation procedures can significantly reduce the chance of accidents. The following basic safety rules and tips must be followed whenever using a forklift.

It is the job of the employer to make certain that the correct training program is provided to the staff and that forklift operators are qualified.. Training includes a combination of lectures, presentations, practical hands-on training and discussions. Reevaluation should occur every three years. Forklift operators must be up-to-date with current forklift safety regulations. Forklift training program content includes dangers of forklift operations, general workplace hazards, workplace surfaces and lighting, and dangers related to utilizing the specific forklift which the worker would be using. An employee must be 18 years of age or over to use a forklift.

To be able to make certain that the machine is functioning safely and properly, forklift inspection must be done every day. The inspection involves keeping a checklist of things and reporting any concerns immediately.

The Work Site
Safe use of a forklift involves a safe and clean workplace. A work site that is safe means establishing "traffic lanes" which are designated for forklift use only. Warning systems like flashing lights and horns should be in place to be able to indicate when there is a forklift approaching. Forklift docking stations should be kept in good repair and inspected daily.

General Guidelines
Included in the general safety rules of utilizing a forklift are avoiding known hazards on the ground, such as oil spills or wet spots; ensuring there is enough clearance for the load; raising or lowering the load only while the forklift is stationary; and keeping legs, hands and arms inside the vehicle while utilizing it.
