Taylor Counterbalance Forklift

Getting Aboard the Forklift
The 3-point dismount is amongst the keys to maintaining operator safety. It is the key issue for maintaining operator safety, even if this is normally ignored. Like for instance, a few years ago, at a forklift rally, a contestant carried out the course perfectly at a forklift rally. At the end of his run, he was so excited, that he jumped off of his machine and completely forgot to make a 3-point dismount. The judges ended up docking marks from his overall score and he failed to win the competition.

The very serious problem of dismounting and mounting the lift truck is covered in training. Having the drivers wear their seatbelts can additionally help save their lives in event of any tip-overs. It is truly necessary to know that if the center of gravity of a loaded lift truck moves outside of the stability triangle then a tip-over situation can occur. Skilled drivers seldom ever run into a tip-over situation, however, it is very vital that they are ready for that possibility in case it happens.

Mount/Dismount
The importance of correctly dismounting and mounting any kind of lift truck, including even a low platform pallet jack is vital to ensuring the driver stays safe. Far too many injuries result when complacency happens around these machines. Several of the serious situations consist of: Driver's catching their loose clothing or coveralls when dismounting and could end up falling and breaking their back. At times, the operator could sprain or break an ankle when they step off of a lift truck. The driver could accidentally break an arm while slipping and falling off of the pallet jack. The operator can suffer from torn shoulder muscles if they slip on floor debris when they are still hanging onto the handhold with one hand.

So as to keep you safe, having 3 points of contact is vital. Obtaining 3 points could be done with 2 hands and 1 foot or by 2 feet and 1 hand. This stance is precisely like climbing up or down a ladder. Don't forget to always face the machine. Drivers often tend to hop or jump off the machinery or to face away from the equipment and these mistakes really lessen the overall risk of injury to themselves.
