(EMAILWIRE.COM, March 11, 2010 ) Austin, TX - According to OSHA, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, there are over 10,000 injuries directly related to powered industrial trucks or forklifts every year in US workplaces.
The simple truth is that most injuries and accidents can be avoided with proper Forklift Safety Training. Moreover, OSHA is also known to assess stiff fines and penalties following injuries resulting from forklift accidents if violations of safety rules or procedures are deemed to have contributed to the accident. Many companies are unaware of OSHA's requirements or how to implement modern comprehensive Forklift Operator Training.
The Workplace Safety Store is an online repository of training material that can meet all your safety and regulatory compliance needs, including OSHA forklift training.
Many employees are injured when trucks are accidently driven off or fall between loading docks and unsecured trailers; many more occur when they are struck by lift trucks or when they fall from elevated pallets or tines. Most of the incidents involve property damage including damage to overhead sprinkles, racking, pipes, walls and other machinery. The costs associated with insurance, medical treatment and repairs can easily run out of control.
The Forklift/Powered Industrial Truck Safety Video Program includes bilingual English or Spanish option and has been specifically created to involve employees in the process of understanding basic and advanced forklift operation and to help organizations fulfill OSHA Powered Industrial Truck Standard (29 CFR, 1910.178) training requirements.
