    Answers: 

    1. C

     Only drivers who are trained should operate forklifts. According to OSHA, “It is a violation of Federal law for anyone UNDER 18 years of age to operate a forklift or for anyone OVER 18 years of age who is not properly trained and certified to do so.”

    2. A

     Forklifts should be checked before every shift to ensure they are in proper working order and that all safety measures are in place. An operator should never operate a forklift if they find any safety issues.

    3. B

     A driver should NEVER remove his seat belt or jump out. The safest thing to do in the event of a tip over is to remain seated with your seat belt on with a tight grip on the steering wheel. The driver should lean forward and toward the opposite side of the tip over. Feet should be braced on the floor. Jumping out of the forklift can be fatal. The vehicle’s frame will offer protection to the driver who remains inside.

    4. B

    According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, these are the most common fatal injuries. From 1980 to 1994, forklift related incidents caused the deaths of 1,021 workers in the United States.

    5. C

    A forklift operator should always look in the direction the machine is heading. When making a turn, the driver must stop the vehicle completely and look both ways to make sure everything is clear and no individuals are in the way before moving.

    6. D

    All of the above. The truck horn should be used to warn pedestrians and other traffic at intersections, blind spots and when backing up.

    7. B

    On the data plate.

    8. D

    All of the above.

    9. C

    All of the above. It is important to pay attention to all factors that can change the center of gravity to prevent tipping, loss of inventory and to avoid injury.

    10. D

    All of the above can cause a forklift to become unstable.

  • Duck Commander Makes Right “Call” with Hyster® Lift Truck

    GREENVILLE, N.C. (July 1, 2013)

    Hyster Company has supplied one of its Hyster® J35XN lift trucks to the duck-men of Duck Commander, makers of world-famous duck calls.

    The Duck Commander business experienced significant growth in 2012 as a result of their popular television show, and needed to make significant operational improvements. They asked the local Hyster® Dealer, Deep South Equipment, to help them make their facility more productive. Deep South Equipment installed racking in the warehouse, and recommended the electric Hyster J35XN lift truck for its tight turning radius, its low cost of operation and its durability.

    “There is no doubt that Willie, Phil and the other duck-men are tough guys,” said John Parsons, president/owner of Deep South Equipment. “That’s why it makes sense that Duck Commander chose a tough Hyster forklift to help move their business forward.”

    “At Duck Commander, we love our Hyster forklift that we got from Deep South Equipment,” said Willie Robertson. “When running my family business here at Duck Commander, I don’t always get a choice of employees because it’s family. However, I do get to choose the equipment we have, and the Hyster forklift is efficient and easy to drive. This ease gives my guys maximum productivity and that is what I am looking for. It’s versatile and so easy to run that even Jase and Godwin can run the thing.”
