Creative Safety Supply, Oregon’s premier retailer of industrial safety and efficiency products, is proud to share a new i nfographic to help ensure forklift safety in the workplace.
Forklifts are an essential tool for the modern warehouse, manufacturing facility, and worksite, but having safe practices involving this powerful piece of equipment is just as essential as the equipment itself. Forklifts have made lifting, moving, and shifting heavy objects as easy as sweeping a floor or hammering a nail, and because of the ease with which these machines can be operated, sometimes this equipment doesn’t always yield the respect and caution it deserves. Forklift accidents are common, and can be catastrophically damaging to inventory and deadly for employees.
Creative Safety Supply’s new infographic gives the sobering facts about these accidents, and provides solutions. This infographic will help safety managers create best practices that will help prevent forklift accidents from happening in the future. This document touches upon the importance of training operators, maintaining safe speeds, the importance of floor marking, how to avoid safety hazards, and tips for maintaining better control of the equipment.
