Standard forklift principles apply when working with or on the FPU containers. Work with
ground guides during the loading or unloading of the pallets. Never move the pallet into
the FPU container while the ground guide is in between the forks or pallet of the FPU
container. Forklift operators must maintain visual contact with the ground guide at all
times. Serious injury or death could occur if the ground guide is pinned between the
forklift and the pallet or FPU container.
The following process will require a forklift operator and a ground guide.
1. Adjust forklift tines to match fork pockets of pallet to be installed.
2. Pick up pallet with forklift.
Pallets are designed with a forklift tine stop to ensure proper distance is maintained
between the forklift bridge and the ASLMS container. The stop also assists in inserting
the pallet to the rear locked position.
3. Using the ground guide, align pallet to the pallet ledge opening.
