4 Forklift Safety Tips | Forklift Ramps for Containers | Load and Unload

Forklifts are necessary for running an efficient facility for many businesses.  However, they can present some of the most critical hazards. In fact, 100 American workers die each year from forklift injury and misuse. 

However, the key to running a safe and efficient business is consistency. When you commit to specified forklift safety procedures, you can ensure your facility is both a safe and efficient place to work.  Here are some tips for maintaining forklift safety.  

  • Ensure all applicable employees have proper training.
    • Do not allow any untrained employees to operate forklifts.
    • You may find it beneficial to review safety standards regularly with your team.  
  • Be aware of your surroundings. 
    • If possible, use a spotter to navigate narrow spaces.  
    • Use your horn or your voice to let other employees know to move over.
    • Only stop when you have enough room.
    • Take care of any spills on floors immediately to avoid slippery conditions.
    • Maintain a safe distance between other forklifts and yours.
  • Use hand signals.
    • Clarify to pedestrians whether or not they are safe to cross.  
    • When a pedestrian stops at an intersection, bring your forklift to a complete stop.  
  • Slow down!
    • Quick turns, in particular, can throw loads off, and place people around you at risk for injury.  
    • This can allow yourself time to react to hazards.
