June is National Safety Month, and on June 11th we celebrated National Forklift Safety Day. For us, forklift safety doesn’t just fall on one day and safety in general is a year-round thing not just one month. In honor of it being safety month, we wanted to put together various safety tips, from operating the forklift to working on a warehouse floor with forklifts buzzing around. Our goal with this article is to help make your workplace safer for everyone!
As an operator, your forklift is the most important piece of equipment you use each shift. It’s a piece of equipment with a lot of working components but it can also be a hazard if something goes wrong. Going through a safety checklist prior to operating your forklift can assure that it is safe to use for that shift. These daily inspections are not only an added safety measure but can help with forklift upkeep helping to spot problems and avoid further issues.
