Caterpillar Rough Terrain Forklifts

Rough Terrain Forklift Safety
Intended for construction locations, where materials must be transported on surfaces that are not paved are rough terrain forklifts. The correct and safe use of rough terrain forklifts is really essential to ensure the safety of both the operator and other personnel at the work site.

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 must just be operated on level ground when lifting.

Drivers of forklifts must always drive at a safe speed even though there are no Occupational Safety and Health Administration regulations governing the speed restrictions of forklifts. Driving on rough or uneven terrain requires even more caution. Steering, in particular, can be very unsafe at higher speeds.

Keep the load on the uphill side of the machinery if operating on an incline. The rule of thumb is drive up, and then back down. Never attempt to lift a load if operating on a sloped surface. The change in the center of gravity can cause the machinery to tip over.

Safety Devices
Operators of forklifts should always put on seat belts like any driver. Make sure that the overhead guard is securely in position. Depending upon the working surroundings, hearing and eye protection might need to be worn. Make sure that a functioning fire extinguisher is mounted on the forklift.

The operating conditions of a forklift can be affected by climate. Load handling, speed and turning might need to be adjusted to guarantee safety when operating a forklift in snow, ice or rain.
