Forklift accidents and injuries are a common occurrence in the workplace. According to data from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), forklifts are involved in an estimated 85 fatal accidents and 34,900 non-fatal accidents each year.
There are a number of factors that can contribute to forklift accidents and injuries, including operator error, equipment malfunction, and inadequate training. In addition, poor workplace design and the presence of hazards such as slippery floors or limited visibility can also contribute to forklift accidents.
In order to reduce the risk of forklift accidents and injuries, it is important for organizations to ensure that their employees are properly trained and that their equipment is well-maintained. In addition, implementing safety measures such as warning signs and barriers can help create a safer work environment. Overall, it is important for organizations to prioritize forklift safety in order to protect their employees and minimize the risk of accidents and injuries.
