Forklifts and fatalities

Yet again it has been a terrible week for forklift accidents in North America.

  • In Florida a 30 year old was killed when he got caught between a forklift and a coil of steel.
  • A 54 year supervisorĀ in an Iowa service and parts operation was struck by a forklift on theĀ 3rd shift and died of his injuries.
  • A 28 year old was killed at a rural feed and grain facility.

Will we never learn?

Forklifts can kill you, that’s why we have rules for both operators and pedestrians to follow.
