Altam Forklift Safety Cage

altam forklift safety cage

Forklift safety cages also know as forklift man baskets are designed to lift personnel, equipment or other items with a forklift securely and safely. Instead of using a pallet or other means of lifting personnel to high places that are not safe. Altam forklift safety cages are fabricated to meet all Cal OSHA and ANSI B56.1 Section 7.37 requirements, often used by warehouses for maintenance or collecting items from warehouse racking or high shelves.

Forklift Cage (Man basket) Safety & Regulations

Altam safety cages are built per CAL OSHA and ANSHI B56.1 Section 7.37.

Whenever a truck is equipped with a work platform (does not include operator-up high lift trucks), precautions shall be taken and the following additional precautions shall be taken for the protection of personnel:

1. Provide a work platform that complies with the design requirements in para. 7.38.3 B56.1.
Altam meet and exceed design requirements per CAL OSHA and ANSI.

2. The work platform attachment means are applied and the work platform is securely attached to the lifting carriage or forks. Altam provides heavy duty chain to secure the cage to your LBR (Loadback Rest) or forklift carriage.

3. When the lifting carriage and/or forks are supporting the work platform used to elevate personnel, the lifting carriage and/or forks are secured to prevent them from pivoting upward.

4. The mast is vertical – do not operate on a side slope.

5. The work platform is horizontal and centered and not tilted forward or rearward when elevated.

6. The truck has a firm and level footing.

7. Place all travel controls in neutral and set parking brake.

8. Before elevating personnel, mark area with cones or other devices to warn of work by elevated personnel.

9. Lift and lower personnel smoothly, with caution, and only at their request.

10. Avoid overhead obstructions and electric wires.

11. Keep hands and feet clear of controls other than those in use.

12. Move truck and/or work platform slowly, only for minor adjustments in horizontal positioning when personnel are on the work platform, and only at their request.

13. On trucks equipped with rotators, mechanically secure the rotator to prevent movement.

14. Have a trained operator in position to control the truck, or available to operate controls. When the operator is not in the operating position, engage the parking brake and block the wheels.

15. Combined weight of the work platform, load, and personnel is not to exceed one-half of the capacity as indicated on the nameplate of the truck on which the work platform is used.

16. Personnel are to remain on the platform floor. Use of railings, planks, ladders, etc., on the work platform for purpose of achieving additional reach or height is prohibited.

17. Personnel and equipment on the work platform are not to exceed the available space.

18. Lower work platform to floor level for personnel to enter and exit. Do not climb on any part of the truck in attempting to enter and exit
