FORKLIFT SAFETY

Forklifts should be equipped with overhead guards to protect the operator from falling objects. If a load becomes unbalanced or strikes some overhead obstruction, it can cause a serious injury to the person operating the equipment. Never place your arms or legs between the uprights of the mast or outside the running lines of the truck. Handle only stable or safely arranged loads.
