LIVE! Webinar

Assembly shops, warehouses and distribution centers are actually small cities with streets and pedestrians. The vehicles on the streets are powered industrial trucks: forklifts, scissor lifts, and high lifts, to name a few. Is your company doing all that it can to protect the safety of its “citizens?”

Cities must control traffic, train drivers and protect pedestrians. You company needs to do the same, but it also needs to account for the unique challenges posed by vehicles that can raise, lower, or move both large heavy objects and groups of smaller objects, whether they are on pallets or in boxes, barrels, or crates.

Most injury incidents to forklift operators and pedestrians occur when lift trucks drive off loading docks, fall between docks and an unsecured trailer or get struck by another lift truck. Workers also are injured when they fall while standing on elevated pallets or lift tines.

During this webinar we’ll talk about how to prevent these incidents with powered lift trucks:

  • Identifying most common safety problems
  • OSHA 29 CFR 1910.178 Powered Industrial Trucks standards
  • Basic safety precautions for operators, workers and pedestrians
  • Using fork lifts and other powered industrial trucks in hazardous locations
  • Operators training requirements
  • Proper operating techniques and traffic best practices
  • Equipment maintenance and safe fuel handling
