Although most companies that either produce or store products use forklifts to move things about, I’ve found that a lot of companies don’t properly train their people in the safety aspect of it. Fortunately, most places don’t have a problem with injuries or deaths related to forklifts, but, there are still over 20,000 forklift-related injuries and deaths every year in the United states alone.
I think that seems really ridiculous. If your company fosters a culture of safe work practices, there should never be a forklift accident. People should know where all powered lift trucks zones are, and the drivers should know where all people are–or be held accountable for safe driving.
