BENEFITS

It was cool when Batman and Robin jumped into the Batmobile and started engines. But you don’t want your forklift operators to engage in such practices. Instead, you want them to conduct an inspection before taking their seat and starting the equipment.

When the operation is done, it’s also important to evaluate whether forklift operators are conducting their business in a safe way.

HOW TO USE THIS TOOL

Form 1 is a Forklift Pre-Operation Checklist that you should require operators to complete each time they use the equipment. In addition to ensuring that operators focus on the safety of the equipment, maintaining these records will document the steps you take to ensure that you and your operators comply with forklift safety requirements.
