Getting Aboard the Forklift
The 3-point dismount is among the keys to keeping operators safe. It is the main issue for keeping operator's safety, even though this is normally ignored. Like for example, a few years ago, at a forklift rally, a participator perfectly carried out the course at a lift truck rally. At the end of his run, he was so thrilled, that he jumped off of his machine and totally forgot to make a 3-point dismount. The judges ended up docking marks from his overall score and he didn't win the competition.

The importance of dismounting and mounting forklifts is a very serious factor to be covered in training. Moreover, having operators wear their seatbelts can really save their lives in case of a tip-over. It is really vital to understand that if a loaded lift truck's center of gravity moves outside of the stability triangle then a tip-over situation can happen. Skilled operators seldom ever run into a tip-over situation, although, it is very essential that they are ready for that possibility in case it happens.

The importance of properly dismounting and mounting any type of forklift, including even a low platform pallet jack is vital to ensuring the driver stays safe. Far too many injuries result when complacency happens around these machinery. Some of the serious situations comprise: Operator's catching their coveralls or loose clothing while dismounting and could end up falling and breaking their back. At times, the operator could break or sprain an ankle when they step off of a lift truck. The operator can break an arm accidentally while falling and slipping off of the pallet jack. The operator can suffer from torn shoulder muscles if they slip on floor debris while they are still hanging onto the handhold utilizing one hand.

So as to keep you safe, having 3 points of contact is necessary. Obtaining 3 points can be done with 2 hands and 1 foot or by 2 feet and 1 hand. This stance is precisely like climbing up or down a ladder. Remember to always face the machine. Drivers often have a tendency to face away from the equipment or to jump or hop off the machine and these mistakes really lessen the overall possibility being hurt.
