This video discusses important concepts about forklift safety and the consequences of unsafe acts. Featured are workplace dummies who commit common safety errors that result in injury and property damage: driving forklifts erratically, not paying attention, showing off and taking unnecessary risks. These incidents drive home the point that safe forklift operators must have good safety attitudes and must exercise sound judgment.
When forklifts are used incorrectly, the resulting accidents can injure or kill operators and pedestrians and cause tremendous property damage. To prevent these accidents, operators must know, understand and follow all safe work procedures. This is precisely the reason OSHA issued its Powered Industrial Truck Standard. The standard requires a training program that focuses on driver knowledge and operation of the vehicle. This video details the training points contained in the standard.
This program shows operators the safe work practices they must follow to avoid injuries and property damage. Topics include training and qualification, pre-operational inspection, mounting and exiting forklifts safely, the stability triangle, preparing for hazards before traveling, traveling with a load and safe operation around pedestrians. Use of maintenance platforms, types and classes of forklifts and sloped surfaces are other issues addressed in the video.
This program shows viewers the precautions they can take to prevent serious, often traumatic injuries that occur when forklifts come into contact with pedestrians. Topics include the importance of forklift safety, operating characteristics of forklifts, walking safely around forklift traffic, staying out of the path of a forklift, operator and pedestrian awareness of one another, following safe work practices and avoiding unsafe acts.
This program discusses the importance of safe operation at your site, expectations and responsibilities of a professional lift truck operator and the skills and techniques you can use to ensure safe operation and incident prevention.
This program stresses to forklift operators that the biggest thing they can do to improve their safety comes down to paying attention to potential hazards in their work areas. Also explained are the safe techniques and rules of operation that must be followed to prevent injuries and property damage.
The eight forklift accidents re-created in this video will show your employees the life-threatening consequences of incorrect and unsafe lift truck operation. As a result, operators and pedestrians will be motivated to make an ongoing commitment to safety in areas where forklifts are present. They will also understand the three basic areas of forklift safety.
The primary cause of forklift mishaps according to OSHA is the failure of operators, pedestrians and co- workers to follow safe work practices at all times. This program illustrates the severity of these accidents with graphic re-creations of real life incidents. With the aid of these dramatic portrayals, the video offers detailed information on lift truck accident causes, forklift accident prevention and loading/unloading procedures.
Available in Graphic & Non-Graphic Versions! Operators who view this program will never forget the valuable safety lessons it contains. This powerful video shows how unsafe forklift operation leads to injuries, deaths and property damage.
This program discusses how to safely operate electric-powered pallet jacks so operators can deliver their loads while avoiding injury and property damage. Topics include pre-operational inspection, driving and handling characteristics, lifting, moving and placing loads, avoiding incidents involving pedestrians, traveling on sloped surfaces and working on loading docks.
Forklifts are basically simple machines, but they are also massive and powerful. While there are a lot of potential hazards associated with operating a forklift, you can avoid incident and injury by knowing 1) how your forklift operates, 2) how to safely carry your loads and 3) how to follow the rules of the road. This program provides viewers with the basic information they need to know regarding these three areas of forklift safety.
This program examines some common hazards posed by the operation of order selectors and how to control these hazards through safe operating practices. Topics include order selector stability characteristics, pre-operational inspection, lifting and stacking materials properly, fall prevention, safe traveling techniques, preventing injuries to pedestrians and properly parking the vehicle.
This program discusses common hazards presented by the operation of reach trucks and how to control those hazards through safe operating techniques. Topics include reach truck stability and handling characteristics, pre-operational inspection, lifting and moving loads safely, avoiding tip-overs, and traveling on sloped surfaces. Safe driving techniques, preventing injuries to pedestrians, lifting personnel safely, parking the truck and working in and around trailers and railcars are other addressed issues.
Propane gas is the most widely used Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) in the United States. While propane is quite beneficial, it is also highly flammable and must be handled safely. This program provides the viewer with an understanding of the properties of propane as well as safety and health precautions. Safe refueling procedures are also detailed in the video.
This kit contains everything you will need to certify your forklift operators in one simple but comprehensive program. Every OSHA forklift regulation is covered with video and computer-generated examples. Four videos in the program: Training & Basic Principles, Operation, Loading, Pre-Operation Inspection & Recharging/Refueling.
