Must Know the Important Points before Operating Forklift Operating a forklift is a very important task. To ensure that forklift drivers perform their jobs safely we provide OSHA FORKLIFT SAFETY TRAINING. On completion of the training OSHA FORKLIFT CERTIFICATE is provided to the employee now known as Operator which guarantees that he/she is capable of safely using a forklift. OSHA FORKLIFT SAFETY TRAINING involves educating prospective users of the forklift about the daily inspection procedure that must be followed before using the forklift. The operator must perform a visual check before starting the forklift. This is called as the “visual pre-start check”. After the visual pre start check the Operator must perform the Visual Pre-Use Check. In this step the Operator should check for the following: • Fire extinguisher - present and charged. • Engine oil level fuel level radiator water level LPG gas and diesel forklifts. • Battery - fully charged • Check all cables for exposed wires battery plug connections not loose worn or dirty vent caps not clogged • Electrolyte levels in cells hold downs or brackets keep battery securely in place. • Bolts nuts guards chains or hydraulic hose reels not damaged missing or loose. • Wheels and tires - check for wear damage and air pressure if pneumatic tires. • Forks - forks not bent no cracks present positioning latches in good working conditioncarriage teeth not broken chipped or worn. • Chain anchor pins - not worn loose or bent.

• Fluid leaks - no damp spots or drips. • Hoses - held securely not loose crimped worn or rubbing. • Horn - working and loud enough to be heard in working environment other warning devices operational. • Lights - head lights and warning lights operational. • Seatbelt and/or operator restraint device if equipped - belts and restraints work properly no visible wear or damage anchors buckles etc. function prope. When the visual pre-use check is finished and all safety concerns have been addressed the Operator performs the Operational Pre-Use Check. What should an operator inspect during the operational pre-use check 1. Tilt Mechanism - moves smoothly holds check by tilting mast all the way forward and backward. 2. Cylinders and Hoses - not leaking after above checks. 3. Listen for any unusual sounds or noises. In case of any problems the Operator must report them to the supervisor immediately.
