    All I see are a bunch of people ignoring the marked paths.

    There was a post recently where a guy hit a beam with a forklift, and people were asking “how do you not see that?” A bunch of people who have probably never been on a forklift took over the thread talking about “target fixation” lol, where you end up hitting something that you’re trying to avoid. It’s literally this simple though, a tall narrow beam gets obscured by the forklift mast.

    Source: I hit a beam once, and that’s why I now drive a forklift bobbing my head side to side like I’m dancing

    This is why at work we drive backwards. We also have a blue spotlight which shines roughly 20ft ahead of the moving vehicle. The maintenance guys have a red spotlight that shines about the same distance forward. Also Pedestrians are limited to very specific areas and there are flashing lights when they are present.

    7 is incorrect. There’s 8.

    Check your mirrors!

    Yeah but he only would have hit the first one and would have stopped so the other 6 would have been safe.

    I just sway side to side and honk my horn quite a bit.

    If you see a forklift don’t go near it unless you make eye contact with the driver. Front back or sides.

    This is totally wrong, I didn’t see a gathering of middle management talking about fantasy football right in the center of the lane.

    For the best view, just hang your head off to the side and weave back and forth instead of driving in a straight line. Problem solved.

    So that’s why it takes 10 guys with flags yelling and walking in front of the forklift to get one through Home Depot.

    I used to work on the docks as a casual (which means you get assigned to different jobs on different days, depending on what’s available after the union guys get their jobs). One day I was directing these giant forklifts that were moving pallets of aluminum ingots from the dock into a warehouse, easiest job I ever had down there and higher paying than most. I asked how a lowly casual like myself had gotten such a cushy assignment. Turned out that, the day before, the guy who had been doing the job (who had done this sort of work for years) somehow stepped between a lift and a wall that the driver was pushing his load up against. He was crushed to death and the driver didn’t even notice he was there until he backed up and saw an arm sticking out. Apparently, that arm was the only part of him that was still recognizable.

    As someone who regularly drives a forklift, I stop when I see one, and only move if its my spotter.

    That’s why I almost always drove backwards. It probably wasn’t the right answer but it was so much easier to see.

    Um, drive in reverse for starters. Much better visibility. And make hi vis vests mandatory in the warehouse.

    Work for a government contractor. There are literally mirrors on every corner possible. Our fork lift drivers ride with flashing yellow lights and beep every 4-5 seconds.

    There’s even signs that tell people to look before crossing. One women got her foot ran over because she was texting and walking. We all felt bad for her but the company/union did their best to tell everyone to keep their eyes forward and keep their mind on tasks.

    That’s why you honk right before entering a room from a hallway/blindspot. So the people are aware that someone is entering with a lift or other equipment

    I’m a forklift driver at my current job, we have both stand up and sit-down forktrucks. It drives my absolutely mad, that here they don’t put enough blame on the people walking by/around us while we’re driving. I can honk my horn, theyll make eye contact then at the last second dart in front of me.

    I quit my job because pedestrians here just don’t give a fuck about forklifts. O have my load of 1.5tons on forks. I check my back the look at load to make sure it’s balanced and I do this couple times a second but somehow I have no idea how damn pedestrian will always end up behind me in that fraction of a second. I told my boss that I can’t work like this it’s madness he said that things won’t change here so I decided to quit. I lasted here whole five days. Some guys told me stories what happened here with forklifts I’d rather get a new job the risk injuding someone. BTW it’s my last day I’m typing this while hiding in WC with a hope that I won’t touch forklift today…

    I bought what I thought was 2 of those fans on there to use as desk fans.

    What I ended up getting was 2 industrial sized warehouse fans like 30 or so inches across that have the wind force capacity of a category 4 hurricane.

    I paid $18 for both because the picture of them made them look tiny that no one else wanted them.

    Forklift operator here. Your head should be constantly on a swivel and you should be tilting to see around the mast when you have a corner or obstruction to the side. Also, honk that horn when there’s a blind spot or you’re going between rooms. Doorways like this are one of the most dangerous spots for a pedestrian because they’re not on the lookout for a lift coming in.
