Available for MP4 video download by purchasing a corporate or single-site license.
Pallets come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, but one thing they all have in common is a gap or opening that allows a forklift's forks to be inserted into or under the pallet. Knowing how to lift and move these types of loads is a vital part of operating a forklift safely. Every load and forklift are different, so it's important to follow all precautions and follow the manufacturer's operational manual to keep the load and yourself safe while you work.
Topics include how to lift the load safely, safely moving the load from one place to another, and how to maneuver around objects and pedestrians while carrying a load.
