The Easy Guide to Working Around Forklifts
50% of forklift fatalities and serious injuries involve pedestrians. It's also interesting to note that half of the pedestrians killed, are crushed by a forklift that is barely moving.
These facts scream at us the need to exercise extreme care when working around forklifts.
Where pedestrians and forklifts operate in the same area, defined aisleways for both should be provided and clearly marked. Naturally, pedestrians must stick to that the defined walkway at all times.
The Easy Guide to Working Around Forklifts is a 4 minute production aimed to raise awareness to workers who have to share their workspace with forklifts.
By watching this video, your trainees will be able to:
- Recognise that speed and braking distances of a forklift are factors that could affect their safety
- Appreciate the limited visibility a forklift operator has
- Know when they are most at risk around
The Easy Guide to Working Around Forklifts is available as video only or in an online, self-paced e-Learning module (SCORM compliant).
It is another “must have” for any organisation who have forklifts on their premises.
