SAFETY IN FORKLIFT OPERATIONS

The forklift is undoubtedly an essential tool to assist in lifting heavy loads with reduced effort. But there is more to it than this!

The incorrect use of this equipment can pose a risk to the employees who operate them and lead to very serious injuries. To prevent these situations, it is necessary:

  • Train employees on Operation Techniques;
  • Carry out Safety Procedures;
  • Inform about the Regulations in effect.

In addition, it is important that forklift trucks are subject to constant maintenance to keep them in good condition. Thus, its functionalities and security are guaranteed.

Another important measure is marking the pavement of the workplace, indicating the areas for people and machines to pass through, which allows employees to take appropriate precautions. It is necessary to define safe circulation corridors, avoiding collisions with other forklift trucks or obstacles.

Furthermore, it is important to use the reflective vest, among other PPE’s, to guarantee the physical integrity of employees in the event of an accident. In the case of the reflective vest, it makes the employee more visible to people and vehicles.

In this sense, safety when working with forklift trucks is a matter of extreme importance and must be treated seriously and responsibly by companies. The implementation of safety measures and training must be adopted by companies, with the aim of guaranteeing protection and avoiding accidents in the workplace environment.
