What is your company forklift policy?

In the wake of so many forklift accidents recently, this is a good time to review your company forklift policy.

1. Do you have a policy – if not you should.

2. Is it documented?

3. Does it cover site specific issues?

4. Do you review and update it regularly?

When developing your policy involve all concerned – forklift operators and co-workers in the area, they are the people who know the issues in your workplace.
