Hyster lift trucks have many standard and optional feature to make every machine safer for the driver and other employees in the work site area. Some of the features available are safety lights, audible devices, operator restraint systems, and ergonomic operator compartments.
To be able to help alert other people of a nearby or approaching lift truck, visual safety devices such as strobe lights may help. There is a low-mounted strobe light which has a shield to help avoid the light shining into the driver's eyes.
Reverse operation alarms are examples of audible warning devices that automatically sound when the forklift is backing up. This will help to alert other people and personnel of the presence lift truck. A rear drive handle with horn enables the operator's hand to be secure when backing-up. This inboard handle protects the operator's hand in case of impact and the handle has a horn which enables the driver to sound the horn without moving their hand to the main steering wheel.
In case of a lift truck flip over, operator restraint systems help to keep the forklift operator's head and torso inside the cab of the forklift to help prevent serious injury. Anti-Cinch Seat Belt and Hip Restraints are basic features on all current models of Yale/Hyster forklifts. For older Yale/Hyster forklifts, safety restraint systems are available for installation on nearly all units.
