In our training programs we always talk about the fact that every day there is some sort of close call with a forklift.
Close calls should always be reported and investigated to avoid repeating the same potentially damaging incident again.
You can now search WorkSafeBC’s list of incidents and it makes interesting reading.
I challenge you to read these summaries and consider if any of these could happen in your workplace and if the answer is yes consider what can you do to avoid them. You can search by industry, location and year – just make sure you select forklifts for type of incident.
