For Proper Used Tire Rack Operation, Forklift Safety Precautions Can Be Important
Adding a used tire rack to your warehouse is a great way to increase your storage capacity while staying well within your budget. To facilitate access to bulky or heavy items from your racking systems, your staff may need to use heavy machinery, such as forklifts. Because of this, it is of the utmost importance that all of your employees who need to work with forklifts adhere closely to proper safety precautions in order to minimize the risk of injury and damage, especially around preowned equipment.
When considering safety guidelines for forklift use, it’s a good idea to start with the standards outlined by OSHA. Ensuring that all of your personnel follow these rules can eliminate many hazards presented by improper usage of heavy machinery. Above and beyond that, you can keep potential incidents to a minimum by only allowing trained personnel to operate forklifts and having any untrained workers maintain a safe distance from running equipment.
