powered units unless a safe place to
ride has been provided by the manufacturer.
– A powered unit is attended when the
operator is less than 25 ft (7.6 m) from
the unit, which remains in his view.
A powered unit is unattended when the
operator is more than 25 ft (7.6 m) from
the unit, which remains in his view, or
whenever the operator leaves the unit
and it is not in his view.
Before leaving the operator’s position:
A bring the unit to a complete stop;
B place the directional controls in neutral;
C apply the parking brake;
In addition, when leaving the unit unattended:
A stop the engine or turn off the controls;
B if the unit must be on an incline, block
the wheels.
– Maintain a safe distance from the edge
of ramps, platforms, and other similar
working surfaces.
– When powered units are driven on and
off highway trucks or trailers, the brakes
on the highway trucks or trailers shall
be applied and wheel chocks or other
positive mechanical means shall be
used to prevent unintentional movement of highway trucks and trailers.
– When powered units are driven on and
off semitrailers that are not coupled to a
tractor, supports may be needed to prevent upending or corner dipping.
– Care shall be taken not to contact overhead installations such as lights, wiring,
pipes, sprinkler systems, etc.

authorized plant speed limits. Under
normal traffic conditions, keep to the
right. Maintain a safe distance, based
on speed of travel, from the unit ahead;
keep the unit under control all times.
Yield the right of way to pedestrians and
emergency vehicles such as ambulances and fire trucks.
Do not pass another unit traveling in the
same direction at intersections, blind
spots, or at other dangerous locations.
Slow down and sound the audible warning device(s) at cross aisles and other
locations where vision is obstructed.

ft (1800 mm) to the nearest rail of a railroad track.
Keep a clear view of the path of travel
and observe for other traffic, personnel,
and safe clearances.
Ascend or descend grades slowly, and
with caution. Avoid turning, if possible,
and use extreme caution on grades,
ramps, or inclines; normally travel
straight up and down.
Under all travel conditions, operate the
unit at a speed that will permit it to be
brought to a stop in a safe manner.
Make starts, stops, turns, or direction
reversals in a smooth manner so as not
shift load and/or overturn the unit.

not exceed the capacity of the elevator.
Approach elevators slowly, and then
enter squarely after the elevator car is
properly leveled. Once on the elevator,
neutralize the controls, shut off power,
and set brakes. It is advisable that all
other personnel leave the elevator before the unit is allowed to enter or leave.

other nonconducting material to prevent the hand chain from shorting on
cell connectors or terminals. A properly
insulated spreader bar shall be used
with any overhead hoist.
– Reinstalled or new batteries shall meet
or exceed the battery type marked on
the unit. Reinstalled batteries shall be
positioned properly and secured in the
– A carboy filter or siphon shall be provided where acid in carboys is used. When
diluting concentrated sulfuric acid to
make up electrolyte, the acid ALWAYS
shall be added to the water - not the reverse. Battery maintenance personnel
shall wear protective clothing such as
eye protection, long sleeves, and
Exception: Removal and replacement
of batteries shall not require the use of
protective clothing.
Electrical installations shall be in accordance with NFPA 70, National Electrical
Code, and any local ordinances.
Trained and authorized personnel shall
change or charge batteries.
Units shall be positioned properly and
brakes shall be applied before attempting to change or charge batteries.
Where charging batteries, the vent
caps shall be kept in place to avoid
electrolyte spray. Care shall be taken to
ensure that vent caps are functioning.
The battery (or compartment cover(s)
shall be open to dissipate heat and gas.
Smoking shall be prohibited in the
charging area.
Precautions shall be taken to prevent
open flames, sparks, or electric arcs in
