Accidents involving forklifts are one of the most common types of industrial accidents, resulting in serious injuries and even death. That’s why it’s important for everyone who comes into contact with forklifts – from the people who operate them to the people who work around them – to receive proper forklift training. In order to receive a forklift certification, your workers need to be able to identify the types of forklifts, the different types of loads that can be transported, the correct way to lift a load, and how to safely work around a forklift. They should also be familiar with the forklift’s limitations and the proper procedures for inspecting a forklift before use. As with any type of machinery, there is always the potential for accidents if the proper safety precautions are not followed. That’s why we’ve put together this forklift training quiz to ensure that your workers are familiar with the dangers of forklifts and the proper way to operate them.
