    Forklifts are very popular for lifting and loading heavy materials.. But also they are very dangerous at work.. The safety is very important while working with it..The proper servicing and maintenance should be provided to all its parts.. The operator must be well trained.. See the Homepage to get more information about the forklift safety..
