Forklifts are used in a variety of different settings. They can be used to move, raise, and lower large objects, pallets, crates, or other containers. As with any equipment or tool, there are many possible hazards associated with their use. Exceeding the capacity of the forklift presents serious hazards such as tip-overs, falling loads, loss of steering control, collision, and being struck by a falling load. A forklift’s capacity is the manufacturer’s guideline for how much weight the forklift can safely lift.
