Stand Up 4 Grain Safety Week 2022

Powered Industrial Trucks

Powered Industrial Trucks

Powered industrial trucks (forklifts, motorized hand trucks), skid steers, aerial lifts, front end loaders and similar equipment are used in a majority of agriculture and related work settings to move materials and objects and help workers perform tasks. This type of equipment shares many similar hazards as well as hazards unique to the piece of equipment being used.

Depending on your operations and the equipment used, some content to consider for training on this topic include:

  • Basic operational safety such as proper/improper use, mounting/dismounting, warning systems (back up lights, alarms), PPE, visibility, falls,  “traffic” lanes/patterns, and certified operators
  • Safety for other workers/pedestrians
  • Moving/transporting with and without loads
  • Rollover/tipover prevention
