National Forklift Safety Day

In May 28, 2014

National Forklift Safety Day, sponsored by the Industrial Truck Association , will serve as a focal point for manufacturers to highlight the safe use of forklifts and importance of operator training.  This day provides an opportunity for the industry to educate customers, policymakers and the administration on forklift operating safety practices.

This day, designated by the ITA as the first of its kind is a great opportunity to not only review safe forklift operation with your drivers, but to anyone that comes to your facility, including customers, vendors, friends and /or family.  We sometimes forget that forklift safety extends far beyond safe operation of a lift truck and that anyone that might be in the vicinity of one at your facility, or anywhere in the world, needs to know how dangerous a forklift can be and to be aware at all times.

OSHA enforces regulations regarding the manufacture and operation of industrial trucks.  The Industrial Truck Standards Development Foundation (ITSDF), which is accredited by ANSI, and UL (Underwriters Laboratories Inc.) develop the safety standards for designing and manufacturing industrial trucks.  National Forklift Safety Day will provide greater awareness of safe practices and in turn encourage safer behavior.  Click Here to learn more about the event.  Learn more about Cardinal Carryor forklift operator safety training programs here.
