Forklift Safety Training Orange County – Stay in the Cab

November 26, 2012 | 0 Comments | Filed under: forklift drivers, Forklift Safety, OSHA, Safety

When it comes to forklift operation, safety should always be the top priority. Even though forklifts have become significantly safer each year, it is still up to the operator to ensure that he or she is taking the necessary forklift safety precautions. In everyone of our safety training classes, we teach our students the importance of staying in the cab if and when their forklift may tip over.

The video below demonstrates the importance of staying in the forklift cab. Each and every year forklift drivers suffer serious injuries when they jump or are thrown from the forklift cab. One of the major causes of these injuries is simply the fact that forklift operators speed and fail to take the necessary safety precautions. To avoid injury, forklift operators should remember to never drive with a raised load, refrain from speeding, always wear a seatbelt, and remember to stay in the cab and brace themselves if the forklift ever tips over.
