Our blog post “20 Important Safety Tips for Forklifts” was very well received, we’re thrilled so many people were able to find value in the information. Because of that, we created a forklift safety tips infographic with the information from that blog post so that you can download it and use it as a handout, a poster, or you can email it or share it on social media.
That being said, OSHA statistics indicate that there are roughly 85 forklift fatalities and 34,900 serious injuries each year, 42 percent of which come from the operator being crushed by a tipping vehicle (ohsonline.com). We can reduce those numbers by ensuring all of our warehouse workers are not only properly educated and trained to safely operate forklifts but are also refreshed on important safety details. It’s the duty of everyone in a warehouse to remind each other the proper safety procedure when not only operating a forklift but working near one as a pedestrian. To help do that, here are 20 simple tips for operating a forklift to introduce you to forklift safety…you can download the infographic as a PDF at the bottom of the page.
Feel free to share with others so that we can reduce the number of deaths and injuries associated with forklifts. For other free resources regarding forklift safety, click the links below:
