Size
On the back of the lift truck is a counterbalance, that allows the forklift to raise really heavy objects. The counterbalance gives balance so that the machinery will not tip over while carrying and transporting heavy cargo. Forklifts are rated according to their load capacity. A small lift truck that can raise 1800 kilograms weighs roughly 4000 kilograms, which is equivalent to two full-size pickup trucks. The largest forklifts could lift things as heavy as 36,000 kilograms.

Considerations
There are a lot of safety concerns included in using a forklift. When driving down a ramp, travel in reverse. If the load interferes with vision and is bulky, haul it in reverse. Operators must be familiar with how to mount the lift safely using the "three-point stance." This includes placing the right hand on the back of the seat, while holding the upright of the safety cage utilizing the left hand and placing the left foot on the step. On no account should you jump out of a lift truck even during a tip over. It is a lot safer to stay inside the confines of the lift. Any fall or slip on a lift truck could result in serious injuries.

Potential
In a lot of industries, the forklift is considered an indispensable since they are required to rapidly raise and move things, load and unload products safely and with little to no physical exertion. Pedestrian safety is a primary consideration when operating in public spaces. Operators should always give pedestrians the right-of-way. A forklift should never be driven on uneven surfaces or on a highway. The driver should have a seat belt firmly fastened all the time when driving.

Expert Insight

OSHA supervises compliance standards for companies that utilize forklifts and provides licensing and certification protocols. The lift truck Rodeo is an entertainment event for operators and other employees which involves an obstacle course and other entertaining spectacles.
