Forklift Seat Belt: Unlike vehicles, forklift safety belts are not intended to shield drivers from high velocity impacts. All things being equal, forklift safety belts are expected to shield drivers from being squashed, or “mousetrapped,” in the occasion the forklift spills. As the forklift tips, the driver’s regular inclination is to leap out. This can prompt the driver becoming squashed between the forklift and the ground. The safety belts save lives by keeping drivers from hopping.
