PROTECTING MAN AND MACHINERY
Tuesday June 13th, 2023 is National Forklift Safety Day. The importance of this day cannot be overstated. Every year American workers are injured or killed by accidents involving forklifts due to inadequate or no training. Not only that, untrained operators can wreak havoc on the businesses that employ them through damaged product and equipment, excessive downtime, workers’ comp and liability insurance, fines and lawsuits.
That is why it is so important to take the time to evaluate the safety practices, protocols and procedures in your operation on a regular basis. Here are some suggestions for making sure your application is doing all it can to prevent the worst:
- Review training schedules and protocols for all forklift drivers.
- Ensure all operators are current in their training (every 3 years).
- Review and update equipment safety check guidelines.
- Attend webinars that share the latest in safety equipment and standards.
