Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) outlines the dangers of forklifts. Forklifts are large, heavy and mobile machinery that are one of the most dangerous pieces of equipment at construction sites nationwide. Forklift injuries at construction sites are typically caused by:
- Forklift turnover caused by improper training and or speeding
- Struck by a forklift
- Crushed between two objects
- Falls from fork platforms
- Accidental use of forklift
- Improper weight on forklift
Despite having certification standards for the use and operation of forklifts, sadly accidents still occur due to the factors stated above.
FORKLIFT INJURIES DUE TO IMPROPER TRAINING
According to OSHA, many of the injuries and fatalities caused by forklift injuries could have been prevented by properly training employees. Taking shortcuts with employee training and development when it comes to operating heavy machinery can be deadly.
