Caterpillar Rough Terrain Forklifts

Caterpillar Rough Terrain Forklifts

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

Even if these trucks are made for rough terrain, you still must be very careful in order prevent tip overs. The forklift is top heavy and should just be operated on level ground when lifting.

Even if there are no Occupational Safety and Health Administration rules governing forklift speed limitations, forklift drivers should drive at a safe speed at all times. Driving on uneven or rough terrain requires even more caution. Steering, particularly, can be really unsafe at higher speeds.

When you are operating on an incline, you must keep the load on the equipment's uphill side. The rule of thumb is drive up, and then back down. Never attempt to raise a load when operating on an inclined surface. The change in the center of gravity can cause the machine to tip over.

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

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