An excerpt from ISNetworld® RAVS®* Safety plan Forklifts/ Industrial Trucks Program
Mechanical devices must be used for lifting and moving objects that are too heavy or bulky for safe manual handling by employees. Employees who have not been trained must not operate power-driven mechanical devices to lift or move objects of any weight. Heavy objects that require special handling or rigging must be moved only by riggers or under the guidance of employees specifically trained and certified to move heavy objects.
Each mechanical lifting or moving device, including forklifts must be thoroughly inspected by the operator daily. Equipment shall be examined before being placed in service. Such examination shall be made at least daily. Where industrial trucks are used on a round-the-clock basis, they shall be examined after each shift. Defects when found shall be immediately reported and corrected.  Each lifting device must also be inspected before lifting a load near its rated capacity. Defective equipment must be repaired before it is used. The rated load capacity of lifting equipment must not be exceeded.
Material moving equipment must be driven forward going up a ramp and driven backward going down a ramp.
Traffic must not be allowed to pass under a raised load.
The floor-loading limit must be checked before mobile lifting equipment enters an area. Passengers must not be carried on lifting equipment unless it is specifically equipped to carry passengers.
