Powered industrial trucks can be ridden or controlled by a walking operator. Excluded Vehicles designed for earth moving or over the road haulage. Equipment that was designed to move earth but has been modified to accept forks are also not included.Vehicles Covered Include: Vehicles Covered Include High lift trucks Counter-balanced trucks Cantilevered trucks Rider trucks Forklift trucks High lift platform trucks Low lift trucks Low lift platform trucks Motorized hand trucks Pallet trucks (electric) Narrow aisle rider trucks Straddle trucks Reach rider trucks Single side loader rider trucks High lift order picker rider trucks Motorized hand/rider trucks Rough terrain trucksForklift Fatalities : Forklift Fatalities What age group has the highest number of fatalities? 18 – 24 25 – 34 35 – 44 45 – 54 Slide7: Fatalities by Age GroupRegulatory Requirements: Regulatory Requirements According to 29 CFR 1910.178: Operator must receive training before operating a forklift Demonstrate competency Forklift characteristics Operating environment Inspection and maintenanceForklift Basics: Forklift Basics www.Lni.wa.gov Image Credit: State of WA-WISHA ServicesForklift Characteristics: Forklift Characteristics Different from driving a car Rear of a forklift swings in opposite direction of the turn Forklift impact against objects magnified Driven backward as well as forward One hand on controls 2 - 3 times the weight of a car Image Credit: State of WA-WISHA ServicesNameplate: Nameplate OSHA requires a legible nameplate It includes information about fork modifications and attachments It lists the maximum load capacity It describes the load center Image Credit: State of WA-WISHA ServicesDetermine a Load’s Center of Gravity: Determine a Load’s Center of Gravity Center of gravity is the balance point Load center is the point where the heaviest part of the load is located Pick up loads at the shortest distance from the edge of the item to the item’s center of gravity and load center Image Credit: State of WA-WISHA ServicesStability Triangle: Stability Triangle Stable forklift without a load Stable forklift with maximum load Unstable forklift with offset maximum loadCombined Actions: Combined Actions Center of gravity (COG) side to side COG forward COG backward Combination of two can cause tip-overVertical Stability: Vertical StabilityAttachments – Approved OSHA Safety Cage: Image Credit: State of WA-WISHA Services Attachments – Approved OSHA Safety Cage Change operating clearances Change capacity Change stability and load centerOperating Hazards— Pedestrians: Operating Hazards— Pedestrians Forklift accidents involving pedestrians may be caused by: Obstructed view Turning Speeding Pedestrian unaware forklift is present Carrying passengers and horseplayOperating Hazards— Environmental Conditions: Operating Hazards— Environmental Conditions Operating non-electric forklift in poorly ventilated area Traveling on ramps Crossing railroad tracks Slippery floors Operating on dirt or gravel Poor lightingOperating Hazards—Load Carrying: Operating Hazards—Load Carrying Load-carrying hazards include: Working around loading docks Loads that block the forward vision Stacking and un-stacking on racksLeaving A Forklift Unattended: Leaving A Forklift Unattended Unattended means: the operator is more than 25 feet away or the forklift is out of view. 1. Lower the forks to the ground! 2. Set the controls to neutral. 3. Turn off the power. 4. Set the brakes. If you dismount a forklift but stay nearby you must at least follow steps 1, 2 & 4.Forklift Characteristics and Hazards—Any Questions?: Forklift Characteristics and Hazards—Any Questions? Any questions about the characteristics or basic features of a forklift? Any questions about the stability of forklifts? Any questions about the hazards specific to our workplace?Conduct a Preoperational Inspection: Conduct a Preoperational Inspection Conduct a preoperational inspection Follow the inspection checklist Complete and sign the checklistInspection Walk-around: Inspection Walk-around Check that the forklift is properly disengaged—forks down, key off, neutral gear, parking brake on Check left and right side—tires, lug nuts, axle, overhead guard, and no debris behind the mast Check front—forks, hoses, fork pins, backrest, mast, and chains Check rear—counterbalance and radiatorInspection Walk-around (cont.): Inspection Walk-around (cont.) Propane/Gas/Diesel-powered forklift Check all oil and fluid levels Check fan belt, fan, and radiator Check tank, hose attachments, and tank clamp Electric-powered forklift Check the battery conditionWhile in the Operator Seat: While in the Operator Seat Make nonmoving checks—gauges, lights, horn, backup alarm, warning light, tilt and lift mechanism, and parking brake Make moving checks—seat belt, running brakes, and steering Look for oil or water leaks on the floorOperating a Forklift: Operating a Forklift Authorized operators only Quickly report accidents Always wear seat belts No person under the forks Operate controls only from driver’s seat Never block exits or emergency equipmentTip-Over Safety Procedure: Tip-Over Safety Procedure Always wear your seat belt Hold onto the steering wheel Brace your feet Lean away from the fall Image Credit: State of WA-WISHA ServicesLoading and Unloading: Loading and Unloading Never over-load the forklift Check the weight of the load Locate the load’s center of gravity Inspect the load (stability) Restack unstable loads Tow from the rear towing pin www.lni.wa.gov/Safety Image Credit: State of WA-WISHA ServicesPicking up the Load: Picking up the Load Approach the load slowly and straight on Ensure the forks are centered to evenly distribute the weight of the load Make certain the load is balanced and secure Drive forward until the forks are into the load all the way so the load is resting against the carriage Raise the load high enough only to clear the traveling surface, then tilt the mast back Check behind, to both sides and above prior to moving Traveling: Traveling Look in the direction of travel Keep body inside cage Keep forks low when traveling Sound the horn Don’t speed Check clearance Keep the load tilted back slightly Image Credit: State of WA-WISHA ServicesTraveling (cont.): Traveling (cont.) Avoid loose objects or holes Keep the load tilted back slightly Never carry passengers Pedestrians always have the right-of-way Keep a safe distance from the edge of ramps or docks Never EAT, DRINK OR SMOKE!!!! No horseplayPlacing a Load: Placing a Load Inspect the area for load placement Stop and slowly raise the load to desired height Place the load squarely Look and then back up slowly Ramps and Railroads: Ramps and Railroads No turns on a ramp Load facing upgrade Go slow Never park on a dock ramp!! Cross railroad tracks diagonally Never park within 8 feet of the center of railroad tracksDocks: Docks Inspect the dock plate Check the trailer floor condition Make sure trailer wheels are chocked Ensure that the nose of the trailer is supported by the tractor or a fixed jackParking: Parking Don’t block exits or aisles Lower the forks Set gear to neutral Set the parking brake Turn off the keyWhat’s Wrong Here?: What’s Wrong Here? Identify the hazardsWhat’s Wrong Here?: What’s Wrong Here?What’s Wrong Here?: What’s Wrong Here?What’s Wrong Here?: What’s Wrong Here?What’s Wrong Here?: What’s Wrong Here?Propane Refueling: Propane Refueling Highly flammable gas—do not smoke Report leaks immediately Distinct odor Hissing sound Frost on fittings Use gloves and safety glasses Have fire extinguisher nearby Propane Refueling (Cont.): Propane Refueling (Cont.) Turn off the forklift. Put on PPE Close the valve. Turn on the forklift – let the line bleed out. Disconnect tank and replace with a full tank. Make sure the valve connection is secure. Open the valve. **Always close the valve at the end of the day Battery Charging: Battery Charging Charge batteries only in protected areas with ventilation Inspect battery connectors for damage No smoking Immediately clean up electrolyte spills Battery electrolyte is highly corrosive—wear PPE Have fire extinguisher nearby Gas & Diesel : Gas & Diesel Turn the engine "OFF" and apply the hand brake before refueling. Clean up any spilled fuel before restarting the engine. Make sure the gas cap is replaced before the unit is started. NO SMOKING Have fire extinguisher nearby Carbon Monoxide Poisoning: Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Internal combustion engines produce carbon monoxide. This gas can rapidly build up in any indoor area. People can be overcome without even realizing they are being exposed. Confusion, headache, dizziness, fatigue, and weakness may set in too quickly for victims to save themselves. Carbon monoxide poisoning can cause permanent brain damage, including changes in personality and memory. Once inhaled, carbon monoxide decreases the ability of the blood to carry oxygen to the brain and other vital organs. Even low levels of carbon monoxide can set off chest pains and heart attacks in people with coronary artery disease.Inspection, Operation, and Maintenance—Questions?: Inspection, Operation, and Maintenance—Questions? Any questions about inspection procedures? Any questions about operating procedures? Any questions about vehicle maintenance?Manual Hydraulic Pallet Jacks: Manual Hydraulic Pallet Jacks Place the load evenly Walk slowly Back down inclines and into closed spaces Make sure the wheels and hydraulic handles are operating correctly. Add lubrication when necessary. Check lift mechanism Never ride on a pallet jack Do not use forks as levers or as pry bars. Do not use a narrow jack to move a wide load. Do not use if: wheels are out of alignment the forks lift unevenlyKey Points to Remember: Key Points to Remember Facility hazards include pedestrians, environmental conditions, and loading/unloading Position loads close to the vertical backrest Always conduct and document a preoperational inspection Follow the safe operating rules of the road Always refuel/recharge in ventilated areas and wear proper PPEReferences : References www.osha.gov www.ini.wa.gov/safety/defualt.asp BLR You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
