Forklift Safety & Accessories

Forklift safety parts are important not just for the protection of the forklift operator, but also for the safety of others in the work area. Government regulations impose strict safety standards, especially in the more advanced countries like the United States and the UK. ANSI B56 is the most important standard for forklift truck safety in the United States. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration of the U.S. Department of Labor has also developed additional safety standards. In the UK, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is the main body responsible for creating regulations around forklift safety.

These standards are designed to include three important areas: the lift truck itself, the truck driver and the operation of the forklift. Safety standards require that a forklift operator be physically and mentally qualified to operate the truck. According to HSE requirements, each forklift operator must be registered with an accredited training organization and attend refresher training every 3-5 years. The most important and therefore extensive requirements are those covering the safe operation of the truck. These trainings include everything from the safety procedures while the truck is idle and parked, all the way to how, where and when it should be used.

OSHA safety regulations covering the truck itself require the vehicle to have:

  • Seat belts and other necessary restraints
  • Horns
  • Backup alarms that sound when the truck is in reverse
  • Fire extinguishers
  • Warning lights like beacons and strobes
  • Directional signals
  • Brake lights
  • Mirrors

Back rests, rain guards and cab enclosures are also considered essential for operator safety. Regulations specifically require that the shift operator carefully inspects the lights, horn, brakes, warning beacon, backup warning alarm and fire extinguishers, as well as to check for leaks before using the vehicle. If any defects are identified, the forklift should not be used until the defects are repaired.

By making sure you have all of the necessary forklift safety parts, you can prevent accidents, suspension of forklift use due to injury and damage, as well as any unintentional conflicts with the law.
