Ramp Safety is Copperloy’s Top Priority

OSHA Guidelines for Forklift Use Yard Ramps and Warehouse Loading Dock Ramps

In light of the number of accidents on forklifts, OSHA estimates 85 fatal forklift accidents per year; 34,900 forklift accidents result in serious injury; and 61,800 are classified as non-serious. Copperloy takes ramp safety seriously in all the features of their yard ramp design.  This data is supported by  the Industrial Truck Association, who estimates there are about 855,900 forklifts in the U.S. Therefore, over 11% of all forklifts will be involved in some type of accident each year.

Forklift fatalities by industry and type:

Fatal Accident Type %   Where fatalities occur %
Crushed by vehicle tipping over 42%   Mining 1.2
Crushed between vehicle and a surface 25%   Construction 23.8
Crushed between two vehicles 11%   Manufacturing 42.5
Struck or run over by a forklift 10%   Transportation 11.0
Struck by falling material 8%   Wholesale trades 12.5
Fall from platform on the forks 4%   Retail trade 9.0

OSHA’s guidelines for forklift ramp safety are related to speed and maintaining a slow, controlled ascent or descent on the ramp. Specific requirements include:

  • 29 CFR 1926.451(e)(5)(ii)– “No ramp or walkway shall be inclined more than a slope of one vertical to three horizontal (20 degrees above the horizontal).”
  • 29 CFR 1910.178(n)(7)– “Grades shall be ascended or descended slowly.”
  • 29 CFR 1910.178(m)(6)– “A safe distance shall be maintained from the edge of ramps…”

The design of the forklift ramps from Copperloy helps meet these requirements, keeping forklift operators safe.
