Article Body:
Operating a forklift is a hard and specialized job that requires specific expert skills, training and experience.
Not every person can operate a forklift. The law allows only those workers who received proper training and
certification by their organization or company to operate a forklift. If you don’t hold a certification, you will
need to go through the specialized training. This training will include a large section that deals with security.
Incorrect operation of the forklift may result in a lot of serious damage to the operator, people around and
the property. This is the main reason why security and damage prevention is an important topic. Personnel
should be able to operate the forklift in a secure manner.


One of the rules that deal with the forklift safety is to keep your feet and hands away from the forklift parts
that move and can cause damage. For example, you should never put your feet right in front or behind the
wheels. You should also keep your hands away from the chain. Another advice is to stay under the overhead
safety guard which is located above your head. This part was specifically installed to prevent any objects
from being accidentally dropped from the top. When you are getting in or out of the forklift, make sure to
look above and check that there is no danger.


The next suggestion is to make sure that you keep your hands and feed inside the forklift operator's cabin.
This will make sure that you don’t hurt yourself if you drive the forklift close to some object. Also make
sure that you drive the forklift very carefully, especially if there are people around. Due to the size and
weight of the forklift you can cause a lot of damage in case of an accident. Be especially careful when you
drive backwards and when you park the forklift.
