Clark Outdoor Forklifts

Forklifts play an important role in the distribution of goods. They can efficiently move product through the distribution process. Nonetheless, they must be used carefully. Improper operation of forklifts can result in injury to workers, damage to products, and serious accidents which could lead to death.

Safety
If you operate a forklift properly, it is fairly safe. Tens of thousands of individuals are seriously injured in forklifts accidents every year. Dozens are killed in workplace accidents that involve forklifts. The tragedy is that nearly all of these accidents are avoidable with attention to safety and correct training.

Kinds of Machines
Depending on the specific type of forklift that will be utilized on the job, the forklift operator should be trained. A popular type used within warehouse and distribution centers is the sit-down model. Other kinds of forklifts usually utilized in industry consist of rough terrain units, narrow aisle trucks and operator up units.

Operator Requirements
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requirements for forklift operators consist of certification involving both practical evaluations as well as classroom study. The three-year certification is not transferable; if switching employers, operators should become recertified.

Load Capacities
1,800 kilograms to 2,200 kilograms is the load capacity of a standard forklift. Higher load capacities up to and over 9,000 kilograms are available in some units. A forklift's load capacity depends on the unit and its options and attachments.

History
Forklifts were initially developed by Clark and by Yale, leading companies within the worldwide forklift business. Ever since the forklift was developed during the 1920s, it has gone through various technological advances, particularly leading to the safe and efficient movement of product and improvements in operator safety.
