Is Your in-House Built Forklift Attachment Certified for Capacity Professional Forklift Engineering Services Can Help


Mount Pleasant, SC -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/12/2012 -- According to OSHA regulations, all forklifts must have an accurate capacity data plate that reflects the forklift attachments installed. In-house built attachments on forklifts must be certified for capacity and physical properties before a data plate can be issued. The engineering analysis must establish the physical properties and safe lifting capacity of the attachment and then marry the attachment to the forklift and mathematically establish a data plate capacity rating for the forklift and attachment(s) combination. Forklifts without the proper capacity data plate installed are unsafe to operate because the operator does not know the safe lifting limits of the machine which can result in accidents. Improperly marked forklift are in violation of OSHA safety regulations if they continue to operate. Large OSHA fines can be levied on the forklift owner if discovered by OSHA inspectors and serious liability burdens can result in the event of an accident.
