Forklifts play an essential part within the distribution of goods. They could efficiently transport product through the distribution process. Nevertheless, they must be utilized safely. Incorrect use of forklifts can result in injury to workers, damage to products, and serious accidents which could result in death.

Safety
If you use a forklift properly, it is fairly safe. Tens of thousands of individuals are seriously injured in forklifts accidents on an annual basis. Dozens are killed in workplace accidents that involve forklifts. The tragedy is that the majority of these accidents are preventable with attention to safety and correct training.

Types of Equipment
Forklift operators should be trained on the specific type of forklift they would be utilizing on the job. A popular type utilized inside warehouse and distribution centers is the sit-down model. Other types of forklifts normally utilized within industry consist of rough terrain units, narrow aisle trucks and operator up units.

Operator Requirements
A forklift operator certification which covers both classroom study and practical evaluations is required by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration or OSHA. The three-year certification is not transferable; if changing employers, operators must 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 various units. The load capacity of a forklift depends on the unit and its attachments and options.

History
Forklifts were first developed by Clark and by Yale, leading companies in the international forklift industry. Since the forklift was developed during the 1920s, it has undergone numerous technological advances, particularly leading to improvements in operator safety and the efficient and safe movement of product.
