Slide 1

´╗┐Forklift Safety 29 CFR 1910.178

Slide 2

Authorized Operators Must be prepared and confirmed Must drive just the sorts of trucks for which they've gotten affirmation

Slide 3

Differences Between Forklifts and Automobiles Forklifts: Often measure more than an auto Have diminished perceivability Often utilize raise wheel controlling Operate in a more mind boggling activity condition Can ride less easily because of tire sorts Are more touchy to shifts in focus of gravity

Slide 4

Hazards of Forklift Operation Vehicle Operations Load limit Lift Height Load dependability Visibility Steering Speed Turning Refueling Maintenance Work Environment Floors/Surfaces Pedestrians Obstacles Blind spots Narrow walkways Intersections Docks & trailers Warehouse Video

Slide 5

Lift Truck Accidents & Causes 680,400 mishaps and 90,000 wounds every year to laborers because of: Tip-overs: 25.3% Hit by forklift: 18.8% Hit by falling burden: 14.4% Use of lift as lift: 12.2% Lift tumbles off dock: 7% Improper upkeep: 6.1%

Slide 6

Causes of Forklift Fatalities Forklift toppled: 24% Struck by falling burdens: 17% Struck by other truck: 14% Fall from forklift: 14% Crushed by forklift: 11% Ran off stacking dock: 8% Worker making repairs on forklift: 6%

Slide 7

Forklift Safety Stability and focal point of gravity Load limit & focusing Driving do's and don'ts Rules of the street Parking Inspection Refueling

Slide 8

The Stability Triangle Support focuses A, B & C frame strength triangle Center of gravity is the time when load is concentrated If focal point of gravity stays inside the triangle, the truck won't tip

Slide 9

Load Capacity Check name plate Don't surpass most extreme: Load limit Load focus Lift tallness Changing the heap focus changes the heap limit

Slide 10

Load Centering & Positioning Place heaviest load against back of forks Ensure burdens are flawlessly stacked, stable, uniformly disseminated and secure Place forks under the heap beyond what many would consider possible Adjust forks to broadest conceivable setting Tilt forks back for included soundness

Slide 11

Safe Driving Match speed to load and conditions Decrease speed at all corners and sound horn Watch for people on foot and obey posted movement signs Safe driving Keep forks as low as could be expected under the circumstances; don't drive with load raised Position forks to tilt back marginally If view is blocked, go backward Watch for overhead deterrents

Slide 12

Other Rules of the Road No travelers No lifting individuals Use your safety belt Keep hands and feet within truck No remaining under forks when raised If taking after, keep up 3 length separate No going at crossing points

Slide 13

Ramps and Inclines If discharge: Drive backward up the slope Drive forward down the grade If stacked: Drive forward up the grade Drive backward down the grade

Slide 14

Driving on Problem Surfaces Be mindful of: oil spots, wet spots, free question or openings Avoid if conceivable: ice, mud, rock, sand and delicate earth Make beyond any doubt territory can bolster the heaviness of the truck and the heap

Slide 15

Loading Docks & Trailers Be mindful of the edges of stacking docks Set brakes on trucks/trailers and chock wheels Inspect insides Ensure that dock plate & inside surfaces can bolster weight Watch leeway

Slide 16

Parking Set forks level on floor Place controls in impartial Shut off motors Set brakes Block wheels if on a slope Do not square crisis territories

Slide 17

If a Tip Over Occurs Don't bounce Stay in your seat Grip wheel safely Brace yourself with your feet Go with the truck

Slide 18

Attachments Operate as though halfway stacked May move stack fixate Be prepared on particular connections

Slide 19

Pre-Operation Inspection: Visual Circle Check Hydraulics Uprights Forks Attachments Leaks Tires/wheels Report issues to Transportation

Slide 20

Pre-Operation Inspection: In-seat check Brakes Steering Controls Lights & signals Engine Horn Fluid levels Battery Hour meter Report issues to Transportation.

Slide 21

Refueling or Recharging Park in assigned reviving/refueling region Ensure sufficient ventilation Don't smoke No open blazes, flashes, or electric circular segments adjacent Have fire douser close-by Use appropriate individual defensive hardware Always check lines, wires, hoses for breaks

Slide 22

Refueling Gas or Diesel Trucks Turn off start and lights Make contact amongst gush and fill pipe before pouring If a holder must be utilized, ensure it is an affirmed compartment Check for releases Clean up any spills

Slide 23

Refueling Liquid Propane Trucks Shut valve; let motor keep running until it slows down Turn off start and lights Check for holes and harm to associations Wear defensive attire Remove purge tank and store it Install new tank safely

Slide 24

Summary Ensure stack steadiness to counteract tip-overs Follow the standards of the street Use additional alert with extraordinary circumstances Inspect vehicles and report any issues Use mind when refueling/energizing
