Order selectors, sometimes called order pickers, allow us to move materials, supplies and merchandise to and from storage areas more efficiently than ever before. Like all other powered industrial trucks, they can be extremely hazardous if safe work practices are not followed. Operators of order selectors have a responsibility to operate them in a safe manner at all times.
This program examines some common hazards posed by the operation of order selectors and how to control these hazards through safe operating practices. Topics include order selector stability characteristics, pre-operational inspection, lifting and stacking materials properly, fall prevention, safe traveling techniques, preventing injuries to pedestrians and properly parking the vehicle.
