Safety Equipment for Forklifts - In a variety of warehouse, agricultural and manufacturing operations and industries which utilized powered forklifts or lift trucks on a regular basis inside the place of work. These industrial powered forklifts can be utilized in order to lower and raise objects in addition to move objects that are either stored in pallets or containers to different places on the property or ship merchandise to other locations. These industrial machinery help so as to improve productivity at the jobsite by reducing the requirement for excessive physical handling of objects by workers. According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, there are about 20,000 severe injuries each year in the United States and around one hundred fatalities because of the result of lift truck incidents.

There are different types of lift trucks that have several load capacities. These models differ for specified maximum weight and forward center of gravity where a load is concerned. Worker injuries typically happen as a result from collision with pedestrians, falls from the forklift, forklift overturn or crushing incidents. Operator falls can happen as the worker ascends or descends into the driver cab or becomes ejected from the machinery in the event of an incident or a collision. Forklifts could overturn because of having an unequal center of gravity of the load, or from being over-loaded or traveling over an uneven surface that could cause the vehicle to topple over. It is important for other co-workers to follow strict safety policies when working in close proximity with the lift truck. Without ample safety measures, pedestrian co-workers are at risk from collisions or accidents associated with an unsafe load.

One example, those in non-agricultural businesses under the age of 18 years are not permitted to function a lift truck. It is required that all forklift operators should have undergone both practical and theoretical training before commencing lift truck operation and they are even required to take refresher courses.

The "American National Standard for Powered Industrial Trucks, ANSI B56.1-1969 are the standards which all powered industrial trucks have to follow. The particular OSHA standards which employees and employers need to adhere to as stated in the General Industry Standards comprise 1910.178 "Powered industrial trucks", and standards for Marine Terminals 29 CFR 1917 Subpart C, "Cargo handling gear and equipment" and Long shoring 29 CFR 1918 Subpart G, "Cargo handling gear and equipment other than ship's gear.
