Forklift Safety Awareness

The purpose of this training is to help you become a qualified forklift operator; one who has the skills and knowledge to operate a lift truck in a safe and proper manner. The content in this course is designed to comply with the intent of the applicable regulatory requirements. Learner objectives are to recognize general engineering and capacity principles associated with forklift safety; identify factors that lead to forklifts tipping over; distinguish between safe and unsafe forklift operations; describe the differences between driving an automobile and a forklift; identify general loading and unloading principles associated with forklift safety; specify safe refueling and recharging procedures; and list the steps to perform in walk-around and sit-down inspections. This course was developed with subject matter support provided by EnSafe Inc., a global professional services company focusing on engineering, environment, health and safety, and information technology.
  • identify load center engineering principles associated with forklift safety
  • identify capacity engineering principles associated with forklift safety
  • identify forklift safety practices
  • recognize key concepts related to driving forklifts
  • identify general loading and unloading principles associated with forklift safety
  • recognize safe refueling and recharging procedures
  • identify the steps to perform in walk-around and sit-down inspections

Forklift Operation 1: Safety Inspection and Maintenance

Forklifts are used in many industries, and operating them safely is paramount to the safety of both forklift operators and their fellow employees. In this course, you will learn when and how to inspect a forklift and what to do in the event an equipment problem is discovered. You will also learn the necessary precautions to take and procedures to follow when refueling gasoline, diesel, and propane-powered forklifts and when changing or recharging battery-powered units. You will also learn about the health hazards you may face as a result of working with or around forklifts. This course was developed with subject matter support provided by EnSafe Inc., a global professional services company focusing on engineering, environment, health and safety, and information technology.
  • recognize what elements of the forklift need to be inspected
  • recognize when a forklift needs to be taken out of service
  • identify safe practices for servicing a forklift
  • identify the three main types of exposures that can be hazardous to your health when maintaining a forklift
  • recognize safe practices for refueling forklifts and charging or changing their batteries

Forklift Operation 3: Load Handling

Forklifts are an important tool used in many industries, but they present many hazards to their operators. The good news is that many of these hazards can be avoided, if not eliminated, when operators are trained to properly operate and load a forklift. Some basic practices can be used to improve safe load handling – for example, driving the forks as far under the load as possible. More specific practices for approaching, lifting, and lowering a load can also help forklift operators improve load handing safety, as they perform each of these actions. Armed with this knowledge, forklift operators will be better prepared to safely load the forklifts they operate. Forklift Operation 3: Load Handling was developed with subject matter support provided by EnSafe Inc., a global professional services company focusing on engineering, environment, health and safety, and information technology.
  • identify safe load handing practices
  • recognize what the guidelines for correctly approaching, lifting, and lowering a load are meant to accomplish

Forklift Operation 4: Traveling and Maneuvering

Safely traveling with and maneuvering a forklift, like most equipment, requires some special considerations. Forklift operators who know how to safely travel with and maneuver a forklift can protect themselves, pedestrians in the workplace, and the loads carried on forklifts. The specific guidelines provided in this course will protect operators from the hazards of traveling with and maneuvering a forklift. The course offers instructions on how to mount and dismount a forklift properly; on traveling with a load over uneven paths, inclines, and other potentially unstable surfaces; and on maneuvering safely when forklifts start, stop, and change direction. This course was developed with subject matter support provided by EnSafe Inc., a global professional services company focusing on engineering, environment, health and safety, and information technology.
  • use the best practices for properly mounting and dismounting a forklift
  • recognize the actions to take to protect yourself during a tipover
  • recognize safe practices for traveling with a forklift
  • recognize how to safely maneuver a forklift

Forklift Operation 2: Stability and Capacity

Forklift operation is a specialized job that requires operators to receive specific training. For instance, before operating a forklift, operators need to be familiar with its capabilities and limitations. This course specifies where to find information on safe forklift operation, and explains what this information means. It shows how features of forklift design impact forklift stability and capacity, and emphasizes that operators must be trained to safely operate forklifts according to their specific designs. The course highlights the concept of the stability triangle to help operators understand specific stability concerns presented by different load types, and shows how to safely accommodate these loads to avoid tipovers and falling loads. Finally, the course uses a field calculation to estimate safe load capacity for situations when a load exceeds the forklift's stated capacity. Forklift Operation 2: Stability and Capacity was developed with subject matter support provided by EnSafe Inc., a global professional services company focusing on engineering, environment, health and safety, and information technology.
  • recall what information can be found on the forklift's nameplate
  • predict, using the stability triangle, the impact various types of loads have on forklift stability
  • estimate safe load capacity for loads that are irregular or exceed the forklift's capacity
