Forklift safety for all

Reported incidents with forklifts in BC in the last 6 months include fractures, internal injuries, crushing and bruising. Often it is not the operator but a pedestrian who is injured.

Employers please remember just training the operators is not enough, you must also ensure you systematically supervise safe operation and all that entails. Identifying and promptly correcting hazardous situations, maintaining and repairing faulty equipment, educating and regularly reminding all workers about how they can stay safe in your workplace should all be part of your safety plan.
