How a young worker died

Not forklift related, but this is compelling footage for any young worker, supervisor, company owner – a sad, unnecessary accident that led to a worker dying on his first day on the job.

What can we learn?

Young workers must be trained – they are especially vulnerable, eager to please and reluctant to ask too many questions.

Company owners and supervisors must be responsible – proper processes need to be in place and followed.  Lead by example.

Safety procedures must be adhered to – if there is a lock out button it is there for a very good reason.  Use it.
