More forklift accidents already in 2016

Not far into 2016 and already too many forklift accidents:

  • An operator was killed when the forklift he was driving on a ramp tipped over.
  • A worker on foot helping to unload glass panels from a flatbed truck suffered a  traumatic head injury when a panel apparently fell from the forklift .
  • A manufacturing plant worker was seriously injured as he was pinned against a piece of machinery when the forks from the forklift came down across his back.

What can we learn from this?  It’s not the middle ages, this is 2016 – these accidents should not happen.
