Summary

Forklifts are responsible for more than 90% of warehouse injury accidents, which is alarming considering these accidents are preventable through training and awareness.

Forklifts

Forklifts are commonly utilized to move heavy objects from one location to another. Unlike traditional methods, forklifts are a fast and versatile way to move heavy objects from storage to the forklift operators. Forklifts also have key safety features that prevent injuries from occurring, such as dynamic brakes for stopping quickly, non-protruding foot pedals that keep forklift operators from crushing their feet, and stability control that prevents forklift rollovers.

In addition, forklifts can carry a variety of attachments, including forks, pallet jacks/skates, drums and lids, lift gates, clamps, and dollies. And since forklifts can operate upright, they can reach tight areas where heavier equipment cannot fit through or be maneuvered easily.

Forklift safety and operating training

According to the U.S. Department of Labor's Bureau of Statistics, forklifts are involved in more than 90% of warehouse injury accidents. This is unfortunate because forklift accidents are entirely preventable through training and awareness.

The forklift itself is not dangerous; it is merely a tool misused or mishandled by the operator. Improper forklift operation has many negative consequences beyond injury, including possible workplace shutdowns if forklifts are mishandled near other equipment or stock inventory.
