Unsafe Action to Leave Forklift Machine Running


Forklift Operation

A day ago, I found an unsafe action relation with forklift operation that I have never thought it before. When I was inspecting preparation work before product delivery, a forklift driver left the forklift machine running while it was holding 2 tons of hazardous material. The forklift driver was doing another job at an area about 10 meters away from the forklift.

At least two hazards that I was immediately thinking about. First, if the forklift fails to hold the load then the hazardous material will be spilled out. Second, if the forklift accidentally moves it will strike something or somebody in front of it.

Then, what should we do if we find such unsafe action? Of course, we should insert these newly hazards into our hazard identification, perform hazard or risk assessment to see if existing hazard controls are effective. Remember, hazard identification must be kept up to date. Learn why hazard identification is important.
