Replace worn industrial tires and increase safety and productivity.

Safety Tip of the Week

 Obstructed vision is one of the leading causes for forklift accidents. Ask for someone to help you when working in a narrow space. Use predetermined signals to ensure solid communication and safety. Always look right and left before proceeding. If you can’t see, sound your horn to let others know you are coming so they can be out of the way.

Safety Tip of the Week


 b2ap3_thumbnail_forklift-safety.png

The point of a forklift is to safely move products up or down or across a warehouse facility. Improper loading techniques cannot only damage product but can seriously injure the operator or someone else. Do not use the fork tip as a lever to raise a heavy load or to push a load, and do not use the tilt cylinder to pull a load. This can result in costly damages to the forklift. Use pallets that can stand the weight of the load. Do not use damaged, deformed or decayed pallets and skids.

Safety Tip of the Week

Safety Tip of the Week

Even if you are traveling at low speed, a piece of debris in your path can cause the load to tip over or the operator to lose control; this can be easily avoided by keeping all pathways clean, and of course paying close attention during forklift operation. Also be sure to properly stack loads on pallets and use prevention measures such as ropes or binders if necessary to ensure load security. It is better to make two safe trips than having an accident with one insecure load.
