Forklift Safety Is Our #1 Priority
The 10th Anniversary of National Forklift Safety Day is upon us. This year, it’s up to all of us to put forklift safety at the top of our list! G&W is fully committed to promoting workplace and forklift safety by not only offering forklifts specifically designed for safety but also through our operator training and train the trainer programs.
We work in sync with OSHA’s high standards and fail-proof safety measures to ensure that forklift operators are in compliance and as safe as possible. We make sure that our customer’s avoid the $14,000 OSHA fines for not being compliant. Some common mistakes made that make a company subject to the fines include:
~ Not completing the Pre-Shift checklist
~ Incorrect data plates (attachments)
~No utilization of seat belts on sit-down lifts
Here are a few quick tips to avoid a worksite disaster and to keep your area safe and compliant:
In addition to our training programs, we also offer many products and supports to establish a safe and productive work area for you and your team.
