Forklift Safety Starts With You: Watch Out for Others

Forklift safety tip: Watch out for others

Did you know the majority of forklift accidents involve pedestrians? That’s why it’s so important to keep others’ safety in mind when you drive.¬†Taking the time to examine your surroundings is a smart way to start your shift. Take notice of how many people are around and what obstacles may be in your route path. This only takes a few minutes and will help prevent future accidents.

Remember, just because you can see pedestrians, does not mean they can see or hear you. Keep that in mind when backing up or approaching blind corners and doorways.
