Caterpillar Rough Terrain Forklifts

Rough Terrain Forklift Safety
Designed for construction locations, where materials must be transported on surfaces which are not paved are rough terrain forklifts. The safe and correct use of rough terrain forklifts is important to guarantee the wellbeing of both the operator and other workers at the work site.

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

Speed
Even if there are no Occupational Safety and Health Administration rules governing forklift speed limitations, forklift operators must drive at a safe speed at all times. Driving on uneven or rough terrain needs even more caution. Steering, particularly, could be unsafe at faster speeds.

Incline
Keep the load on the uphill side of the machine when operating on a slope. The rule of thumb is drive up, and then back down. Do not attempt to lift a load when operating on an inclined surface. The change in the center of gravity can cause the machinery to tip over.

Safety Devices
Operators of forklifts should always put on seat belts like any driver. Check that the overhead guard is securely in place. Depending on the working environment, hearing and eye protection may need to be worn. Make certain that a working fire extinguisher is mounted on the forklift.

Weather
The operating conditions of a forklift could be affected by climate. Turning, load handling and speed might need to be adjusted to ensure safety when operating a forklift in snow, ice or rain.
