Do you know the risks of forklift operations in steel mills?

1. commodities fall

Forklift in the process of handling, there will be overload, loading and unloading goods shaking imbalance, cargo accidental fall and other phenomena.

According to the following points, this risk can be avoided as much as possible: operate the forklift as smoothly as possible; stack the goods neatly and tie them tightly with forks before transportation; do not brake sharply when driving; for potholes, level the road in time. At the same time, according to the relevant regulations, the goods shall not be overloaded.

2. personal injury

Other operators other than the operator standing on the forklift, standing incorrectly, or the load on the fork frame is too heavy, which will cause the rear of the forklift to tilt. So let the personnel stand at both ends of the forklift and use their weight as the balance weight.

In order to avoid such accidents, it is necessary to strengthen the safety education of forklift personnel. Except for the operator, no one is allowed to ride and stand on the forklift, and it is strictly forbidden to overload as required.

3. vehicle rollover

When the forklift is driving, the side of the forklift overturns, causing damage to personnel and equipment. The reason may be that the forklift is leaning on a slope, the ground is slipping, or the forklift is turning too fast. Therefore, the driver is required to drive at a low speed, avoid operating the forklift on soft ground, and avoid sudden braking when loading.

4. vehicle collision

When driving and operating the forklift, the driver did not observe carefully, or the driver's sight was blocked or had bad habits when the forklift was driving backwards, causing a collision accident. It may be misoperation, no reversing mirror and reversing tone are installed, or there is no maintenance. It may also be because the driver did not whistle to the people around him when reversing.
