Caterpillar Rough Terrain Forklifts

Rough Terrain Forklift Safety
Made for construction locations, where supplies must be transported on surfaces that are not paved are rough terrain forklifts. The safe and correct use of rough terrain forklifts is vital in order to guarantee the wellbeing of both the operator and other employees at the work location.

Terrain
Even if these trucks are built for rough terrain, you still should be really careful so as to avoid tip overs. The forklift is top heavy and when lifting, should only be operated on level ground.

Speed
Even though there are no Occupational Safety and Health Administration rules governing forklift speed limitations, forklift drivers should drive at a safe speed every time. Driving on rough or uneven terrain needs even more caution. Steering, particularly, could be dangerous at faster speeds.

Incline
If you are operating on an incline, you must keep the load on the equipment's uphill side. The rule of thumb is drive up, and back down. Never try to raise a load if operating on a sloped surface. The change in the center of gravity could cause the equipment to tip over.

Safety Devices
Like any driver, forklift drivers are obliged to put on seat belts. Make certain that the overhead guard is securely in position. Depending on 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. Speed, turning and load handling may need to be adjusted to guarantee safety when operating a forklift in ice, rain or snow.
