Free forklift safety film for inductions and training

31st March 2020

To help those in key industries readying additional personnel to work amongst their busy forklift operations, we’ve made our ‘Safely Working with Lift Trucks’ training film freely available to view online.

The video is aimed at anyone required to work on or around forklift trucks, to raise awareness and reduce the risk of accidents and injuries. With key businesses working flat out during the pandemic, using MHE to provide vital products and services, we hope this can assist in the delivery of staff training, toolbox talks or inductions, and help prepare staff to work safely together.

The video lasts 30 minutes, and can be viewed in its entirety or in chapters. The start time of each chapter is listed below so that you can skip along:

  • Introduction (0.00) – accident statistics and consequences, real-life CCTV clips
  • Safe Working Practices (6.33) –  stability, speed and the operating area
  • Think (16.37) – legal responsibilities for safety and the repercussions
  • Observe (18.48) – observations and common hazards
  • Pedestrians (22.15) – pedestrian safety and awareness of risks
  • Summary (23.59) – ‘Could you live with that?’ accident dramatisation

Online access will remain free throughout this period to help businesses adjust to the new circumstances.

Sorry, free access to this video is no longer available.
