Taylor Counterbalance Forklift

Getting Aboard the Lift truck
The 3-point dismount is among the keys to keeping operators safe. It is the key issue for maintaining operator safety, even if this is often ignored. Like for example, a few years ago, at a forklift rally, a participator carried out the course perfectly at a forklift rally. At the end of his run, he was so excited, that he jumped off of his machine and forgot to make a 3-point dismount. He failed to win the competition because he judges ended up docking marks from his overall score.

The very serious problem of dismounting and mounting the forklift is included in training. Having the operators wear their seatbelts could additionally help save their lives in case of any tip-overs. It is necessary to know that if a loaded forklift's center of gravity moves outside of the stability triangle then a tip-over situation could occur. Trained drivers rarely ever run into a tip-over situation, although, it is extremely vital that they are ready for that risk in case it happens.

Mounting and dismounting of forklifts is essential for ensuring the driver stays safe. This is also true even on low platform pallet jacks. There are way too many injuries sustained from using these machinery. Some of the serious situations comprise: Driver's catching their loose clothing or coveralls when dismounting and could end up falling and wrenching their back. Sometimes, the driver can sprain or break an ankle when they step off of a lift truck. The operator could break an arm accidentally while slipping and falling off of the pallet jack. The operator could suffer from torn shoulder muscles if they slip on floor debris when they are still hanging onto the handhold utilizing one hand.

Having 3 points of contact is necessary when dismounting or mounting a forklift so as to keep you safe. The 3 points can be obtained by 1 foot and 2 hands or by 1 hand and 2 feet. This stance is exactly like climbing down or up a ladder. Remember to always face the machine. Drivers usually tend to face away from the machinery or to jump or hop off the machinery and these mistakes greatly reduce the overall risk being hurt.
