Rough Terrain Forklift Safety
Intended for construction locations, where supplies must be transported on surfaces which are not paved are rough terrain forklifts. The safe and correct use of rough terrain forklifts is really important in order to ensure the wellbeing of both the operator and other personnel at the work location.

Terrain
These trucks are built for rough terrain, but care should still be taken to be able to prevent tip overs. The forklift is top heavy and must only be operated on level ground when lifting.

Speed
Even if there are no Occupational Safety and Health Administration rules governing forklift speed restrictions, forklift operators must drive at a safe speed at all times. Driving on terrain that is uneven or rough needs even more caution. Steering, particularly, can be dangerous 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 back down. Do not attempt to raise a load while operating on an inclined surface. The change in the center of gravity could cause the machinery to tip over.

Safety Devices
Operators of forklifts must always wear seat belts like any driver. Check that the overhead guard is firmly in place. Depending upon the working surroundings, hearing and eye protection might need to be worn. Make certain that a working fire extinguisher is mounted on the forklift.

Weather
Climate could impact forklift operating conditions. Load handling, speed and turning might need to be adjusted to guarantee safety when operating a forklift in rain, snow or ice.
