WAC 296-307-52043

What requirements apply to loading powered industrial trucks?

(1) All loads must be stable or safely arranged. Exercise caution when handling off-center loads that cannot be centered.
(2) All loads must be within the rated capacity of the truck.
(3) Take care securing, manipulating, positioning, and transporting loads when attachments are used. Trucks with attachments must be operated as partially loaded trucks when not handling a load.
(4) Place the load carrier under the load as far as possible. Tilt the mast backward to stabilize the load.
(5) Use extreme care when tilting the load forward or backward, particularly when high tiering. Avoid tilting the load forward with the load carrier elevated except to pick up a load, or when the load is in a deposit position over a rack or stack. When stacking or tiering, use only enough backward tilt to stabilize the load.
