When we perform a task multiple times, we get better at it. We get more efficient, more skilled, and more knowledgeable about what it is we are doing. However, we may also get more complacent and more careless when we have been performing the same task over and over again. This is when accidents occur, when we make assumptions about our abilities and take proper safety procedures for granted. This is especially true for operating forklifts; even competent drivers need to be occasionally reminded of safety. In this On Demand video lesson, you will increase your safety awareness by learning about four major techniques and rules: inspection, stability, safe operation, and truck and trailer loading.

With all of these techniques, the biggest thing you can do to ensure safe forklift operation is to pay attention. There's a lot going on at your jobsite, but you must be aware of the structures, obstacles, and traffic around you. Take what you've learned from this training and apply it to when you sit in the operator's seat.

Everyone needs to be reminded about proper safety procedures from time to time; you may start to lose focus on tasks at hand precisely because you've been performing the same actions for so long. Apply the information presented in this training video to refresh your safety skills and help make a safe work environment for everyone around you.
