Our workplace is full of hazards, hazards that can hurt us or kill us. Controlling these hazards and preventing injuries is the point of our safety and health program. One such hazard is the one presented by the unsafe operation of powered pallet jacks, also known as pallet trucks. These vehicles have the potential to be very dangerous, so it is critical that operators always remain focused on their safe operation.
This program includes important safety topics when dealing with powered pallet jacks, such as how to perform pre-operational inspections, the proper PPE to use while on the job, how to lift and travel with a load, and how to safely maneuver around pedestrians, inclines, and loading docks.
