Safety & Accessories
Safety is an important part of CLARK’s commitment to customer satisfaction. Although safety is engineered into every truck, CLARK doesn’t stop there. CLARK offers a full range of products, services and publications to help you improve material handling safety in your operation. As an employer, it is your responsibility to provide a safe working environment. Some people may think that installing warning lights or alarms will solve their safety problems – but ensuring safety is not that simple. No single combination of safety equipment can provide the means to the safest environment in all applications. Since your operation is unique, it probably has some unique safety considerations. To improve safety in your operation, you should have an overall safety program that addresses your specific safety problems. To help you learn more about what you should do to improve material handling safety in your business, CLARK has published a booklet called Employer’s Guide to Material Handling Safety. Ask your CLARK dealer for a copy.
OSHA requires training for forklift operators. CLARK dealers can provide help with operator and mechanic training courses and materials and offer a variety of training packages for stand-up, sit-down and pallet trucks.
Manuals and Publications
There are many helpful manuals and publications available through your CLARK dealer. Maintenance and parts manuals, as well as operator’s manuals, are ordered using the truck serial number. If you are starting a training program, ask your CLARK dealer about training materials.
Your dealer representative may be able to suggest an attachment to help you do some more jobs more safely or more efficiently. Check with your equipment supplier on the capacity rating of the truck when adding or changing an attachment. The capacity plate must be updated to show the correct rating.
Trained dealership personnel can evaluate your operation to check whether your trucks are right for the work you have them doing. They will look at the loads you are handling, and compare the size, weight and dimensions of the load to the truck’s rated capacity. They can tell you whether you are using the right type of tire for the work surface.
Your CLARK dealer has a large selection of video programs, including operator training, maintenance, plant safety and application videos. In addition to English format, many operator and safety training videos are available in Spanish.
CLARK offers high quality, dependable parts to help you customize your trucks to meet the safety needs of your business. Specialized parts are available factory installed on new trucks, or you can have your local dealer install additional parts on the trucks you already have. All of our parts are UL approved, meet or exceed the industry standards and are OSHA compliant.
