Forklift Safety Guidelines

  Stop, sound horn and proceed with caution at doorways and blind intersections.

  Know the load limits of the forklift BEFORE operating.

  Never let anyone under elevated forks or use for elevating people.

  Handle only loads that are stable and safely arranged.

  Do not maneuver or turn the truck while the forks are in the raised position.

  Start, stop and brake smoothly with no sudden, hasty movements.

  Brace the load against the fork carriage.

  Keep your hands, arms and legs inside the lift truck.

  Wear protective gear and safety restraints.

  Remember to always pay attention!
