Getting Aboard the Lift truck
The 3-point dismount is amongst the keys to maintaining operator safety. It is the main problem for maintaining operator safety, even if this is often overlooked. For example, several years ago, at a forklift rally, a participator perfectly carried out the course at a forklift rally. At the end of his run, he was so thrilled, that he jumped off of his machine and completely forgot to make a 3-point dismount. He didn't win the competition because he judges ended up docking marks from his overall score.

The importance of dismounting and mounting lift trucks is a very serious factor to be included in training. In addition, having drivers wear their seatbelts can potentially save their lives in the event of a tip-over. It is really vital to understand that if a loaded lift truck's center of gravity moves outside of the stability triangle then a tip-over situation could happen. Skilled operators rarely ever run into a tip-over situation, although, it is really vital that they are ready for that risk in case it occurs.

Mount/Dismount
The importance of properly dismounting and mounting any kind of forklift, including even a low platform pallet jack is vital to ensuring the driver stays safe. Far too many injuries result when complacency happens around these equipment. Some of the serious situations consist of: Driver's catching their coveralls or loose clothing while dismounting and could end up falling and wrenching their back. Sometimes, the driver could sprain or break an ankle when they step off of a forklift. The operator could accidentally break an arm while slipping and falling off of the pallet jack. The operator could suffer from torn shoulder muscles if they slip on floor debris while they are still hanging onto the handhold with one hand.

Having 3 points of contact is vital when dismounting or mounting a forklift in order to keep you safe. The 3 points can be obtained by 1 foot and 2 hands or by 1 hand and 2 feet. This stance is precisely like climbing up or down a ladder. Don't forget to always face the machinery. Operators often tend to face away from the machinery or to hop or jump off the machine and these mistakes greatly reduce the overall risk being injured.
