Clark Outdoor Forklifts

Forklifts play an essential role within the distribution of goods. They could efficiently transport product through the distribution process. However, they must be utilized safely. Improper operation of forklifts can result in injury to workers, damage to products, and serious accidents causing death.

Safety
Forklifts are rather safe as long as they are used correctly. Tens of thousands of individuals are seriously injured in forklifts accidents each year. Dozens are killed in workplace accidents that involve forklifts. The tragedy is that nearly all of these accidents are avoidable with attention to safety and proper training.

Types of Machines
Forklift operators should be trained on the particular kind of forklift they will be utilizing on the job. A popular type utilized within distribution centers and warehouses is the sit-down model. Other types of forklifts normally utilized in industry consist of narrow aisle trucks, operator up units and rough terrain units.

Operator Requirements
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requirements for forklift operators consist of certification involving both practical evaluations as well as classroom study. The three-year certification is not transferable; if switching employers, operators should become recertified.

Load Capacities
Typical forklifts have a load capacity of 1,800 kilograms to 2,200 kilograms. Higher load capacities up to and beyond 9,000 kilograms are available in some units. A forklift's load capacity would depend on the unit and its attachments and options.

History
Yale and Clark, the leading companies within the global forklift business,were the first to develop forklifts. Ever since the forklift was developed in the 1920s, it has undergone various technological changes, mostly leading to improvements in operator safety and the safe and efficient movement of product.
