Carbon Monoxide and Forklifts

“Be Aware of The Hazard”

When forklifts are used inside of confined spaces and buildings, dangerous levels of carbon
monoxide (CO) can build up quickly.

CO is a poisonous gas that can cause nausea and dizziness. In high concentrations it can be
fatal. Because it is impossible to smell, taste or see CO, it is crucial that you be aware of its
dangers and do as much as you can to avoid overexposure before symptoms occur.
