LOOK WHERE YOU'RE GOING
Always be alert to the area around you and watch where
you are driving. Be careful that you don't get pinned or
crushed between the truck and a fixed object such as a
wall or post.
USE YOUR TRUCK CAREFULLY
• Watch your hands and your feet. A foot or hand caught
between the truck and a fixed object will be crushed or
even cut off.
• Keep to the side of the truck while traveling power unit
first. Make certain the truck won't hit the back of your
leg or foot. Don't let the truck run over your foot.
• If traveling forks first, keep both hands on the control
handle and be careful when changing direction of travel.
Keep your feet clear of the truck.
• Keep your truck under control at all times. Operate at
a speed that allows you to stop safely. Be even more
careful on slippery or uneven surfaces. Do not run
over objects on the floor.
• Perform all truck movements smoothly and at a speed
that will give you time to react in an emergency.
AVOID FALLS
Falls are very serious accidents, you can be crushed or
even killed. The best way to prevent injury is to know
where you are at all times and follow the rules of safe
truck operation.
• Be extremely careful when working around docks,
dockboards and trailers.
• Stay away from the edge of docks and ramps.
• Make sure dockboards are secure.
• Check that trailer wheels are chocked.
WARNING

Daily Safety Check
CHECK YOUR TRUCK BEFORE STARTING WORK
You must make sure your truck is safe to use.
1. Walk around your truck and check it over.
• Check to make sure the battery is charged, water level
is OK and vent caps are in place. Don't use an open
flame to check the battery.
• Make certain the battery retainers on both sides of the
truck are properly installed.
• See that all wheels are in good condition.
• Clean the twist grips.
• Check that both forks are straight and not cracked
or badly worn.
• See that the load backrest is in place and fastened, if
your truck has that option.
• Look under the truck for signs of hydraulic leaks.
• Try the horn.
• Make sure the power disconnect works.
• Check that all controls work smoothly.
21 Daily Safety Check
2. Test drive your truck in an uncongested area.
• Try all the hydraulic functions.
• Check the steering.
• Operate the truck slowly in both directions.
• Operate through the full speed range in both forward
and reverse.
• Check braking distance in forward and reverse. Load
size and floor conditions can affect these distances.
• Know the distance it takes to stop before you start
working. If the braking distance is too long to stop
safely, don't use the truck.
If anything doesn't look, work or feel right, don't use the
truck. Report the problem to your supervisor.
You can get checklist forms from your Crown dealer
(part no. OF-3772). Used properly, this checklist can alert
service people to needed repairs.

Walking Path
USE CAUTION, BE ALERT
• Watch where you're driving. Don't let any part of your
body get pinned or crushed between the truck and a
fixed object.
• Stay to the side of the truck when traveling power unit
first. Make sure the truck won't hit your leg or run over
your foot.
• When traveling forks first keep both hands on the control.
Be careful when changing direction. Keep your feet
clear of the truck.
• Travel in the direction that gives you the best view.
Look where you are going and slow down in congested
areas.
• Slow down for wet or slippery floors. Don't run over
things. Watch out for rough floors.
• Look where you are going before you change direction
of travel.
• See that you have room to drive and turn. Watch out
for power unit swing.
• Slow down when making turns.
• Avoid sudden movement of controls. Learn to use them
smoothly at a moderate, even rate.
• Be extra careful if you must use your truck in an area
where there is a risk of falling objects.
• Never ride on your truck.

WATCH OUT FOR OTHER PEOPLE
• Slow down. Yield or stop for pedestrians.
Use your horn when you come to a crosswalk
or intersection.
• Be careful that you don't pin or crush someone.
For example: Never drive your truck toward anyone
standing in front of a fixed object.
• Never allow anyone to ride on your truck.
• Keep others away from your truck while you're working.
• Don't let anyone use your truck unless they are trained
and certified.
• Watch out for power unit swing when turning.
AVOID FALLS
• Stay away from the edge of docks and ramps.
• Check that bridgeplates and dockboards are secure. Be
certain that either the trailer wheels are chocked or the
trailer is locked to the dock. Check capacities. Be sure
your truck, with load, isn't too heavy for where you are
driving.
• Make sure the load you are moving is stable. Center
the load. Be even more careful with long, high or wide
loads. They can be less stable.
• Don't take your truck onto an elevator unless you are
authorized. Check the capacity or load limit and make
sure there are no people present. Enter load first and
set the brake.
WHEN LEAVING YOUR TRUCK
• Lower the forks. Turn the truck off or disconnect the
battery.
• Avoid parking on inclines. But if you must, block the
wheels of your truck.
BE CAREFUL TRAVELING ON RAMPS AND GRADES
• Stay out of the path of the truck.
• With or without a load, travel with the forks pointed
downgrade.
• If a load requires that you travel with the forks upgrade,
be even more careful. Operate the controls from the
side of the truck.
• Slow down and don't turn on ramps or grades.

Battery Maintenance
WHEN YOU INSTALL OR CHANGE BATTERIES
• Turn the truck OFF. Check that all controls are
in neutral.
• Make certain you use the correct size and weight battery.
Never operate a truck that has an underweight or
undersized battery installed.
• Never let anything metal touch the top of the cells. You
could cause sparks or do damage to the battery. Use an
insulator (such as plywood) when necessary.
• Use an approved spreader bar to place a battery in, or
remove it from, the battery compartment or a stand.
Make sure you adjust the spreader bar hooks to fit the
battery.
Know the Hazards
USING A ROLLER STAND
If you use a roller stand to install or remove a battery,
make sure the roller stand is the same height as the rollers
in the truck's battery compartment. Also make sure the
roller stand is at least as long as your battery.
AFTER INSTALLING YOUR BATTERY
• Replace the battery retainers. Make certain the retainers
on both sides of the truck are in place.
• Connect the battery. Turn the truck ON and check
truck operation.
Batteries produce explosive gas.
Do not smoke, use open flame, or
create an arc or sparks near this
battery. Ventilate well in enclosed
areas and when charging.
Batteries contain Sulfuric Acid which
causes severe burns. Do not get in
eyes, on skin, or clothing. In case of
contact, flush immediately. Get medical
attention if your eyes are affected.
107
TRUCK BATTERIES CAN BE DANGEROUS
Your truck battery produces fumes that can explode.
It also contains acid that could burn or disfigure you.
• Do not try to install, remove, charge or service your
truck battery unless you are trained and authorized.
• Never smoke or use an open flame around batteries.
• Your company should provide an area where it is safe
to work on batteries. Use that area for all battery work.
• Use protective equipment such as gloves, eye shields,
aprons, etc.
BATTERY RETAINERS MUST BE IN PLACE
The battery could slide out if all retainers are not in place.
Check that both retainers are installed before operating
your truck.
