Forklift Accidents
Forklift mishaps are often due to the careless operation of the forklift. This happens when the forklift operator is not properly trained in safety procedures. Anybody operating a forklift needs to use caution to lessen the possibility of accidents and to be able to avoid potential dangers.

Forklift Accident Statistics:
OSHA, that is responsible for monitoring workplace safety, reports on the frequency of forklift mishaps. Typically, every three days someone is killed in a forklift mishap in the United States. Approximately 95,000 injuries occur in forklift related accidents each year. The vast majority of these accidents could have been prevented if correct safety procedures had been followed. There are also websites dedicated to reporting stories of forklift accidents.

Both businesses and individuals suffer as a result of forklift mishaps. There are many reasons why employers must take steps to reduce the risk. One of the biggest reasons is to avoid risk of lawsuits if somebody is hurt. Second, accidents cut down on working time. Third, goods and property can be damaged during mishaps. Nearly all accidents are attributed to workers who are not correctly trained. Employers are responsible for making certain that employees who are utilizing the forklift are trained in safety and risks. Never let anyone on a forklift who isn't trained to utilize the forklift. Your business must develop and post in a visible place all forklift safety procedures.

Staff should have a positive attitude when they go through training, instead of doing it just because they are required to. You as the employer should help employees understand the significance of correct training. Let them know that they can injure or kill not just themselves, but other individuals, if they make mistakes. It is up to you to make sure that your employees undertake training seriously.
