    A forklift operator may leave the fork attachment suspended after shift if insufficient room is available to lower the attachment.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A forklift operator should never leave the fork attachment suspended after their shift, regardless of the available space. This is because leaving the attachment suspended can pose a safety hazard to other workers or damage to the equipment. It is important to lower the attachment to the ground and secure it properly before leaving the forklift unattended.

    Which of the following shall be clearly posted on the forklift?

    • A.

      Rated load capacities.

    • B.

      Boom angle indicators.

    • C.

      A list of designated operators placard.

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    All of the mentioned options should be clearly posted on the forklift. Rated load capacities provide information about the maximum weight the forklift can safely lift. Boom angle indicators help the operator determine the angle at which the boom is extended, ensuring safe operation. A list of designated operators placard helps identify the authorized individuals who are trained and qualified to operate the forklift. Therefore, all of these should be clearly posted on the forklift for safety and compliance purposes.

    An operator may continue to run equipment if he/she does not have their designated forklift operator card in possession. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    An operator should not continue to run equipment if they do not have their designated forklift operator card in possession. This card serves as proof that the operator has received the necessary training and certification to safely operate a forklift. Without it, the operator may not have the required knowledge and skills to operate the equipment properly, which can lead to accidents and injuries. It is important for operators to always have their forklift operator card with them while operating the equipment.

    Tip-overs are the most common cause of forklift fatalities.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Tip-overs are the most common cause of forklift fatalities because forklifts have a high center of gravity and can easily become unstable if not operated properly. When a forklift tips over, it can result in serious injuries or even death for the operator and nearby workers. This is why it is crucial to ensure proper training and adherence to safety protocols when operating a forklift to prevent tip-overs and their potentially fatal consequences.

    The signal that the operator may take from anyone is the signal to:

    • A.

    • C.

      Raise the load

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Stop
    Explanation
    The signal that the operator may take from anyone is to stop. This means that if anyone gives a signal to the operator, it indicates that they want the machine to be stopped. The other options, such as turning off the machine or raising the load, are not mentioned as signals that the operator may take from anyone. Therefore, the correct answer is stop.

    • B.

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because it is important for every operator who uses the forklift during a shift to perform and document the inspection. This ensures that each operator is aware of any potential issues or malfunctions with the forklift before using it, promoting safety and preventing accidents.

    Prior to initial start-up, the following items must be checked:

    • A.

      Brake Fluid Level

    • B.

      Coolant Level

    • C.

      Engine Oil

    • D.

    The coolant level and engine oil must be checked prior to initial start-up. These two items are crucial for the proper functioning of the engine. The coolant helps in maintaining the engine temperature and prevents overheating, while the engine oil lubricates the moving parts of the engine, reducing friction and wear. Therefore, checking the coolant level and engine oil is essential to ensure the engine's smooth operation and prevent any potential damage.
