Forklift Safety

The use of an heavy equipment in the workplace requires that you be trained in how to safely operate the machinery. Each year hundreds of accidents are caused by someone using heavy machinery they were not qualified to operate. A forklift falls into the heavy equipment category and requires a license to operate. Almost half of the injuries are due to the forklift flipping since the person driving was unaware of how to safely maneuver the large machine. Using a forklift may look easy but it is much like driving a car or riding a bike it takes time to master before you can be completely confident you are driving safely.

All forklift training must been done by a person that has complete knowledge of working a forklift. They must given written and oral instructions as well as a demonstration. The person that is being taught must show them that they have learned. If the trainer does not feel the trainee has mastered the forklift they can deny them their certificate and have them take the class over again. Once you are certified in forklift safety. you are required to renew your certificate each year.
