Do you know the four major risks of forklift operation

  • 2023-01-05

During the forklift handling operation, there are phenomena such as overloading, unbalanced loading and unloading goods, and accidental falling of goods to hurt people. Analysis of the possible reasons is that the forklift load is lifted too fast during operation or the speed exceeds the specified speed during transfer. At this time, the goods on the vehicle fall due to sudden braking to avoid the situation. It may also be that the goods are not tightly tied to the vehicle body as required or the loaded goods do not match the fork arm device of the forklift, etc., causing the goods to fall from the fork frame.

As a non-human handling tool for warehousing goods, forklifts are widely used in major workshops, transportation hubs, transfer centers, etc. Due to the large carrying capacity of forklift operations, the following operational risks should be avoided and solutions should be mastered.

Operational risk one

During the forklift handling operation, there are phenomena such as overloading, unbalanced loading and unloading goods, and accidental falling of goods to hurt people. Analysis of the possible reasons is that the forklift load is lifted too fast during operation or the speed exceeds the specified speed during transfer. At this time, the goods on the vehicle fall due to sudden braking to avoid the situation. It may also be that the goods are not tightly tied to the vehicle body as required or the loaded goods do not match the fork arm device of the forklift, etc., causing the goods to fall from the fork frame.

This risk can be completely solved or avoided as far as possible according to the following points: The forklift should be operated smoothly. Line up the items neatly and fasten them to the fork before transporting them. Do not brake suddenly while driving. Smooth the road surface in time for potholes. At the same time, the overloaded loading and unloading of goods shall not be allowed in accordance with the relevant regulations.

Operational Risk II

When the load on the fork is too heavy, the rear of the vehicle will be lifted. At this time, the personnel should stand at one end of the forklift and use the body weight as a counterweight. As a result, the rear of the vehicle suddenly rises when the goods are lifted, causing the personnel to fall and be injured. This accident may be caused by the overloaded forklift or the unprotected position of the person standing.

To avoid such accidents, the safety education of forklift operators should be strengthened, and it is strictly forbidden for anyone other than the operator to ride and stand on the forklift. And according to regulations shall not be overloaded.

Operational risk three

The forklift truck rolls over sideways, causing injury to personnel and equipment. The reason may be that the forklift travels diagonally on a slope or turns when it is loaded. Or the forklift turns too fast.

Therefore, the driver is required to drive at low speed, avoid forklift operation on soft ground, and at the same time, avoid sudden turns and brakes when under load.

Operational risk four

When the forklift is reversing, the driver's sight is blocked or the driver's bad habits lead to a bump accident. The possible reason is that the reversing mirror and the reversing sound are not installed according to the regulations or the fault has not been repaired. It may also be that the driver did not honk the horn to remind people around him when he reversed the vehicle.

Therefore, the vehicle reversing warning components should be installed and repaired in time, and the driver's safe reversing habit should be cultivated at the same time.
