Safe Forklift Operations and Practices for the Oilfield Industry

Moxie Media 40 minutes

Forklift accidents are so common, they seem nearly routine. In the oilfield, these accidents are likely to be especially severe, due to oversized, heavy, or awkward loads such as drill pipes, rough terrain, and severe operating conditions. That's why you need to do everything you can to ensure the safety of your operators and the whole crew.

Forklift Basics to be covered in the course include: Safe Operations, Forklift Terminology, Rated Capacity, Center of Gravity, Stability Triangle, Equipment Inspections, Regulations, Load Charts, Manuals, and Information Sources.
Hazards and Risk Factors covered in the course include: Suspended and Falling loads, Instability and Tipping, Equipment Use Beyond Capacity, Equipment Failure, and Infrequent or Faulty Inspections or Maintenance.
