Provide proper training
Not only is it a legal obligation, but it will significantly help to reduce the high percentage of accidents caused by forklifts, keeping everyone safe. Maintaining 3 points of contact when entering or exiting is one of the most important rules of training. This means you should keep one hand and two feet, or two hands and one foot on the truck at all times until you are sitting.
Provide the correct safety wear
Regular safety inspections
Safe loading procedures
Many accidents can be caused by unsafe loads, and the lack of understanding of the consequences. You must always check to make sure your load is not unevenly balanced, unsecured, too heavy or even too high. These can all have an effect on the truck and can cause it to lose balance and tip.
