Every year there are thousands of reportable forklift truck related accidents. These can result in death or serious injury, damage to equipment and costs to employers.
The main causes of injury and deaths are:
- Lack of operator training.
- Inadequate premises
- Poor forklift maintenance
- Lack of seperation between pedestrians and forklifts
Safework NSW have put together the below great video on Forklift Safety that the team at Industroquip Safety & Signage would like to share with you for your to show your team to try and eliminate any further injuries and deaths in, on and around forklifts across Australia.
