When dismounting a forklift, there are several particular things to take into consideration. When dismounting for instance, make sure to never jump from it and to face the vehicle. Maintain a 3-point stance, that means to consistently have both hands and one foot or vice-versa in contact with the machine. Be sure to wear non-slippery and oil resistant shoes as proper protective shoes can certainly help to keep you safe. Do not wear loose clothing or dangling jewelry, because these things might become caught. Wear the correct type of clothes. Make sure the area around the forklift and the floor is free of debris or fluid that can potentially lead to a dangerous slip. Finally, when you are ready to dismount, be alert and make sure there is no other traffic around.
