No riders on forklifts

Forklifts are not designed to take passengers and it is very dangerous to hitch a ride on a forklift.  The operator manual always tells you this, and often there are decals on the machine telling operators not to carry people.

Tragically, last week in the US a 20 year old found this out the hard way when he was riding on the side of the forklift, fell and was hit by the vehicle’s back tire.

He died.

Don’t do it and don’t let others do it.
