Forklift Safety Tips

Understand OSHA enforcement practices and regulatory requirements pertaining to forklifts.

More than 100 people per year die in forklift accidents on the job and thousands more are injured. Forklift overturns are the primary cause of fatalities involving this equipment (25%) but co-workers can also be injured when struck or crushed by a forklift. This topic will outline OSHA expectations for compliance, as well as best practices that conform with consensus and industry standards of care. The information will also outline how to inspect forklifts and effectively train equipment operators to avoid injuries and reduce liability.
