Safe forklift operation – 4 steps

During forklift training sessions students are sometimes overwhelmed by the amount of information they have to take in, remember and then put into practice.  Safely operating a forklift is not as easy as a good operator makes it look.  Once you have mastered the basics, bear in mind these four pillars to safe operation:

1. Check your machine

2. Check your load

3. Check your environment

4. Check your clearances

We will be covering more on each of these elements in our next post.

Refresher training can help operators get back to these basics.
