Caterpillar Rough Terrain Forklifts

Rough Terrain Forklift Safety
Made for construction sites, where materials should be transported on surfaces which are not paved are rough terrain forklifts. The correct and safe use of rough terrain forklifts is important in order to guarantee the safety of both the operator and other workers at the work location.

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

Speed
Even though there are no Occupational Safety and Health Administration regulations governing forklift speed limitations, forklift operators must drive at a safe speed at all times. Driving on rough or uneven terrain requires even more caution. Steering, particularly, could be dangerous at higher speeds.

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

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

Weather
The operating conditions of a forklift could be affected by weather conditions. Load handling, speed and turning may need to be adjusted to guarantee safety when operating a forklift in snow, ice or rain.
