Direct from the US Government;  the ones you really have to watch...!

First, the bad news. According to OSHA:

  *   100 workers are seriously injured in a forklift accident EVERY DAY

  *   Every 4 days a worker dies in a forklift accident

  *   90% percent of all forklifts will be involved in an injury-causing accident during their service life.

Now, the good news: The majority of forklift accidents are avoidable.

The rate of injury and death could be dramatically decreased with an increase in safety training.

Stop putting forklift safety training on the back burner. Even workers who have been operating forklifts for years without incident need regular reviews to avoid becoming complacent.

Contact MidSouth Safety Risk for all your forklift and safety training needs.
