Caterpillar Rough Terrain Forklifts

Rough Terrain Forklift Safety
The rough terrain forklift is intended for construction locations, where supplies have to be moved around on unpaved surfaces. The safe and correct use of rough terrain forklifts is really essential in order to ensure the wellbeing of both the operator and other employees at the work location.

Terrain
Even if these trucks are built for rough terrain, you still should be very careful so as to avoid tip overs. The forklift is top heavy and when lifting, should only be operated on level ground.

Speed
Drivers of forklifts must always drive at a safe speed even if there are no Occupational Safety and Health Administration regulations governing the speed limitations of forklifts. Driving on rough or uneven terrain requires even more caution. Steering, particularly, can be unsafe at faster speeds.

Incline
Keep the load on the uphill side of the machine when operating on an incline. The rule of thumb is drive up, and then back down. Never try to lift a load while operating on an inclined surface. The change in the center of gravity could cause the machinery to tip over.

Safety Devices
Drivers of forklifts must always wear seat belts like any driver. Make certain that the overhead guard is firmly in position. Depending on the working environment, hearing and eye protection may need to be worn. Make sure that a working fire extinguisher is mounted on the forklift.

Weather
The operating conditions of a forklift can be affected by weather conditions. Load handling, speed and turning might need to be adjusted to ensure safety when operating a forklift in snow, ice or rain.
