Background for the Trainer:
Feel free to change this slide to mention hazards that are specific to your company.
Encourage the students to think of other hazards associated with operating the forklift.
It is important that you are aware of all the potential hazards of the area in which you will be operating the lift truck.
Other hazards include operating on dirt or gravel, working around loading docks, pits in the floor, loads that block the forward vision, pedestrians with poor attitudes, etc.
