OSHA estimates that nearly 100 workers suffer serious injuries from forklift accidents every single day. Workers die in a forklift accident every four days. According to available data, about 90 percent of all forklifts will be involved in an injury-causing accident during their service life. That is extremely bad news for working men and women.
It is recognized that the vast majority of these deaths and injuries, as well as billions of dollars in facility and inventory damages, can be avoided. Basic forklift safety rules must be enforced and workers fully apprised of what is required of them. Unfortunately, even though safety managers know how critical forklift safety training is, quite often they are too busy and lack the time to develop an adequate training program. Also, the availability of resources can be a problem.
