How to avoid forklifts rolling over

Date: 2023-08-10 View:

 Pay attention to the problem when using the forklift

Overturning of a forklift can result in serious injury or death,
and operators should exercise caution at all times.
According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA),
forklift overturning is the leading cause of forklift accidents.

Forklift operators should always be trained and qualified on how to avoid tipping over their forklifts,
but if tipping does occur, they also need to know what to do to help avoid injury or death.
Below is information about forklift tipping,
and you can refer to your forklift operation and maintenance manual
for instructions on how to reduce the risk of tipping and what to do if tipping occurs.

1:Stable foundation

The design of the counterbalance forklift is based on the balance
of two weights on each side of the fulcrum (front axle).
The load on the fork must be balanced by the weight of the forklift,
and the position of the center of gravity of the forklift and load is also a factor.
This basic principle is used to pick up loads,
and the ability of forklifts to handle loads is discussed in terms
of the center of gravity and forward and lateral stability.

2: How to avoid a rollover

Buckle up

Seat belts prevent being thrown out of the forklift in the event of a rollover,
and are used to protect your head and torso
from being caught between the truck and the ground.
While it may not protect forklift operators from all possible injuries,
it can help and often eliminate injuries

Keep a safe distance from the edge

Always keep a safe distance from the edges of docks,
ramps, and platforms. If you get too close to the edge,
the forklift may fall off the edge.

Do not tilt forward to raise the load

Do not tilt forward to raise the load unless the load
is in a storage position above the rack or stack.
This can cause the forklift to tip over.

Avoid shifting the center of gravity

Only stable or safely arranged loads can be handled!
Keep the center of gravity low and avoid deviation of the center of gravity.
Offsets can cause loads to tip over or fall.
Operate the forklift slowly when picking up
or placing long or wide loads, or when turning.
