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.
