Forklift

A Forklift is a relatively simple machine to operate, provided the operator has a thorough understanding of its capabilities. Forklifts are ideal when moving large loads around the job site, but can be very dangerous to both the operator and those working nearby if personnel are not familiar with its limitations (such as maximum height and tipping point). This is why it is imperative that those who use a Forklift of any variety while on the job receive both theoretical and practical training to sharpen their skills and minimize risk.
