When dismounting a forklift, there are some particular things to take into consideration. When dismounting for example, make sure to face the vehicle and to never jump from it. Maintain a 3-point stance, which means to consistently have both hands and one foot or vice-versa in contact with the machinery. Be sure to wear non-slippery and oil resistant shoes since correct protective shoes can definitely help to keep you safe. Do not wear loose clothing or dangling jewelry, since these items might become caught. Wear the proper kind of clothing. Make sure the area around the forklift and the floor is free of debris or fluid which could potentially lead to a dangerous slip. Last but not least, be alert and make sure there is no other traffic around when you are preparing to dismount.
