Caterpillar Rough Terrain Forklifts

Rough Terrain Forklift Safety
The rough terrain forklift is meant for construction sites, where supplies have to be moved around on unpaved surfaces. The safe and proper use of rough terrain forklifts is important to guarantee the wellbeing of both the operator and other personnel at the work site.

Terrain
Even if these trucks are built for rough terrain, you still should be really careful so as to avoid tip overs. The forklift is top heavy and should only be operated on level ground when lifting.

Speed
Even though there are no Occupational Safety and Health Administration regulations governing forklift speed limitations, forklift drivers must drive at a safe speed every time. Driving on terrain that is uneven or rough needs even more caution. Steering, in particular, can be really unsafe at higher speeds.

Incline
If you are operating on a slope, you should keep the load on the equipment's uphill side. The rule of thumb is drive up, and back down. Never attempt to lift a load when operating on an inclined surface. The change in the center of gravity could cause the equipment to tip over.

Safety Devices
Drivers of forklifts should always put on seat belts like any driver. Check that the overhead guard is firmly in position. Depending on the working environment, hearing and eye protection may need to be worn. Check that a functioning fire extinguisher is mounted on the forklift.

Weather
Climate could affect forklift operating conditions. Speed, turning and load handling may need to be adjusted to ensure safety when operating a forklift in snow, ice or rain.
