I.   Background for the Trainer:
If the forklift operators drive safely and consider the combined actions that might cause them to tip over, they should never tip over in the first place.  But, if there is a tipover, it is important that they know what to do.
II.   Speaker’s Notes:
Do not jump.  You should be wearing the seat belt so that it would be hard to jump if you had the seat belt secured.  Many operators who thought they could jump clear of a tipover have been crushed by the overhead guard or the mast of the forklift.
Seat belts must always be worn.  Many fatalities have occurred when an unseatbelted operator was thrown clear of the forklift and struck his or her head on a solid object.
Brace yourself by holding firmly to the steering wheel and planting your feet.
Lean away from the fall.
