Forklift Safety Challenges Cause Painful Problems
Historically, employee health and safety programs define employee safety and well-being efforts in the workplace. These programs typically focus on:
- Identifying risk situations, such as inherent hazards or challenging work situations
- Taking steps to mitigate those risks (training in safety procedures and drills, protective equipment, etc.)
These program measures are extremely important. Just as important are the key issues and areas where accidents or injuries are most likely. Each year, OSHA reports there are nearly 100,000 forklift accident related injuries in the United States; nearly 100 result in fatalities.
