Safetember - See danger…speak up!

Throughout the month of September - or ‘Safetember’ - the FLTA are encouraging those working on and around fork lift trucks to “see danger, speak up”

Every year approximately 2,000 accidents and 10 fatalities are reported as a result of forklift operation in the United Kingdom. That's around 40 major injuries each week!

It is estimated that each year 10% of all investigated accidents involving forklift trucks are caused primarily by lack of operator training. Ensure your operators are trained and know the importance of a pre-use visual inspection. Carry out a daily inspection of their forklift with Good to Go Safety and significantly reduce the risk of accidents and unnecessary maintenance costs.
