Hazard alert stand up forklift

This week a forklift operator in Nebraska was fatally injured when the stand-up forklift he was using backed into a shelving unit and pinned him.

If you are using a reach truck or a stand-up counterbalanced forklift without a vertical bar to protect the operator and your racking is arranged in such a way that the main body of the forklift can go under one rack and the overhead guard can go under another rack, the first thing that will hit any rack in-between will be your body.
