A thorough forklift inspection helps individual workers and companies increase safety, decrease liability, and is one of the best ways to get optimal return on investment (ROI). And this investment isn’t just financial; with a regular maintenance schedule, your company also invests in the most important asset possible – its employees!
Roadrunner Rubber knows all about how important safety is to everyday forklift use. But don’t take our word for it. Keeping close tabs on your forklift fleet with a practical, purposeful maintenance plan is required by the U.S. Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
Specific guidelines (29 CFR 1910.178) are in place to ensure employee safety with forklifts – regardless of the industry or application. Whether you use a forklift at a shipyard or distribution supercenter, OSHA safety standards help protect workers from serious accidents and injuries – and it all starts with a forklift inspection.
Forkliftcertification.com, a leader in online OSHA forklift training, put together the following forklift inspection checklist for plant managers, safety coordinators, and forklift operators.
