Safely Operating a Forklift: Best Practices and Guidelines

Attentiveness to safety is one of the hallmarks of an experienced forklift operator trained with BRITTOp programs, particularly on-board forklift operators with significant training time in safety procedures such as these training accrediting bodies offer. Some key safety guidelines to remember for these training providers:

Regular Inspection

Before operating a forklift, always conduct an initial check for damages, leaks, or other abnormalities that might indicate its condition is compromised.

Wear Proper Safety Gear

As part of their safety plans, workers must wear appropriate protective equipment like helmets, high-visibility vests, and boots with steel toes.

Maintain Safe Speeds

Always observe posted speed limits when carrying loads, particularly at higher speeds.

Load Management

Never bring more weight than your forklift can support at once; overloaded machines increase their risk of instability.

Avoid Overloading

If there's anything that obscures your view in front of you, move backward. When needed, spotters could come in handy.
