Report reveals industry safety shortcomings
1st October 2019
In support of National Forklift Safety Month this October, we've released a comprehensive forklift safety report featuring shocking statistics that call for greater awareness among UK operators and their managers.
Forklift Safety Insights is a new report and guidance document, recommending ways to improve site safety after a recent survey revealed the troubling realties of forklift operations today.
Survey respondents were taken from a sample of UK businesses operating forklift trucks on site. As well as forklift use, the survey investigated key areas such as; manager and operator training, safe systems of work, segregation, monitoring and operating environments.
The report focuses on the industry’s areas for improvement highlighted by the survey, and offers simple, effective solutions to help businesses reduce risk and ensure safe, productive and profitable sites.
While it’s clear that problem areas remain, by highlighting the issues in this report, we hope that managers and operators alike can begin to understand the risks and contribute towards improving safety standards, this safety month and beyond.
