National Forklift Safety Month - October 2019

Don't have a scare this Halloween. Take Forklift Safety seriously!

Everyone’s familiar with forklift trucks but very little realise exactly how dangerous they are. According to the Forklift Truck Association (FLTA) there are 1,300 forklift accidents each year in the UK, which averages out at five accidents in a single day, and those accidents aren't just scrapes and scratches, they are life-changing injuries involving broken or crushed bones, amputations and in some tragic cases even death.

Both Good to Go Safety and TakeAIM support the Forklift Truck Association (FLTA) in there mission to highlight and create to focus on the appallingly high number of forklift-related accidents and injuries… and to share ways to do something about it.

Statistics from the HSE show that nearly 25% of workplace transport accidents involve forklift trucks. The majority of these accidents are caused by poor supervision or lack of training. Ensuring staff are properly trained on the use and basic mechanics of a forklift truck ensures they are able to recognise risks and take action before problems occur. Training your staff and / or providing comprehensive information will help your employees familiarise themselves with their forklift truck.

Both Good to Go Safety and TakeAIM help companies not only carry out pre-use inspections of workplace equipment such as Forklift Trucks, but also enables staff to learn from comprehensive guidance notes. Both Good to Go Safety and TakeAIM guide staff through an inspection, highlighting the elements that require inspected and the potential issues that require rectified prior to use. Highlighting these on a daily basis will 1. Ensure your company meets the relevant legislation and industry guidelines. 2. Increase the chance of spotting a fault early, before it deteriorates. 3. Help staff familiarise with their Forklift Truck and so any potential issues will jump out at them easier.
