Forklifts are a heavy piece of industrial equipment that are operated by a forklift certified driver. Because forklifts are often operated in areas that have other pedestrians and obstacles, they can pose a dangerous safety hazard to the driver and others around. Especially because they’re a few thousand pounds and have a certain science behind driving them while lifting and lowering loads.
