The vast majority of these accidents could have been avoided if proper safety measures had been followed. There are also web sites dedicated to reporting stories of forklift mishaps.

One of the biggest reasons is to avoid risk of lawsuits if someone is hurt. Second, mishaps cut down on working time. Third, goods and property could be damaged during mishaps. The majority of accidents are attributed to employees who are not trained. Employers are responsible for making sure that all workers who are utilizing the forklift are properly trained in risks and safety. Never let anyone on a forklift who isn't correctly trained to utilize the forklift. Your business must develop and post in a location that is visible all forklift safety procedures.

Staff must have a positive attitude when they go through training, rather than doing it just because they are required to.

It is up to you to ensure that all your workers go through training seriously.
