Rough Terrain Forklift Safety
Made for construction sites, where materials must be moved on surfaces that are not paved are rough terrain forklifts. The correct and safe use of rough terrain forklifts is important to be able to ensure the safety of both the driver and other employees at the work site.

Terrain
These trucks are built for rough terrain, but care should still be taken in order to avoid tip overs. The forklift is top heavy and when lifting, must just be operated on level ground.

Speed
Operators of forklifts should always drive at a safe speed even if there are no Occupational Safety and Health Administration rules governing the speed limitations of forklifts. Driving on terrain that is rough or uneven requires even more caution. Steering, in particular, can be dangerous at higher speeds.

Incline
Keep the load on the uphill side of the machine if operating on a slope. The rule of thumb is drive up, and then back down. Never attempt to lift a load when operating on a sloped surface. The change in the center of gravity could cause the equipment to tip over.

Safety Devices
Drivers of forklifts must always put on seat belts like any driver. Check that the overhead guard is firmly in place. Depending on the working surroundings, hearing and eye protection might need to be worn. Make certain that a working fire extinguisher is mounted on the forklift.

Weather
Weather conditions can affect forklift operating conditions. Speed, turning and load handling may need to be adjusted to ensure safety when operating a forklift in snow, ice or rain.
