Forklift Stability


A forklift is a powerful and effective load-shifting tool but can be extremely dangerous if used incorrectly. Forklifts have stability characteristics that can lead to tip-over and cause serious injury or death if not understood. Many accidents can be avoided by understanding and following the principles of forklift stability.
