Before You Operate Your Lift Truck You must be trained and authorized to operate a lift truck. 
First: Learn safe operating rules and your company rules.
Next: Read your Operator’s Manual. If you do not understand it, ask your supervisor for help. Learn about the unit you operate.
Then: Practice operating your truck safely. And: Keep your truck in safe operating condition with correct and timely maintenance.

Lift trucks are specialized machines with unique operating characteristics. They require specifi c instructions and rules for safe operation and maintenance. CLARK lift trucks are built to take hard work, but not abuse. They are built to be dependable, but they are only as safe and effi cient as the operator and the persons responsible for maintaining them.

Safety Standards
Your CLARK lift truck is designed and built to be as safe and effi cient as today’s technology can make it. As manufactured, it meets all the applicable mandatory requirements of ANSI B56.1 Safety Standard for Powered Industrial Trucks. Each truck is also furnished with certain safety devices—horn, for example—as standard equipment. ANSI B56.1, the standard for lift truck operation, includes rules about operation, selection, training, supervision, and maintenance. We suggest that owners, operators, and supervisors read this standard. See “Safety Standards” in Section 6 for more information.

Safe Operation
Safe operation of lift trucks is of primary importance to CLARK. Our experience with lift truck accidents has shown that when accidents happen and people are killed or injured, the causes are:

  1. Operator is not properly trained
  2. Operator is not experienced with lift truck operation
  3. Basic safety rules are not followed
  4. Lift truck is not maintained in safe operating condition.

For these reasons, CLARK wants you to know about the safe operation and correct maintenance of your lift truck. Clark provides this Operator’s Manual to help.
