Overview

According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), someone is killed every three days by a forklift accident, resulting in family trauma and expensive costs to companies. Forklift accidents can be caused by overloading the machine, lack of maintenance, and driver errors. This online course trains forklift operators how to prevent injuries to themselves and those working around them.

Hal Phillips, a forklift operator, and Casey Randall, a warehouses manager, recount a near-fatal incident that occurred during a busy day at work. Because of Hal's carelessness with a forklift, Casey is now in a wheelchair with severe nerve damage to her legs. Their sad story is an example all forklift operators need to learn from. This incident could happen in any warehouse, but more importantly could have been avoided with proper training.

Even pedestrians can be involved in forklift incidents, nearly 100 pedestrian deaths and 20,000 injuries a year occur from forklift accidents. Pedestrians need to be on alert around machinery, but forklift operators are responsible for safely operating a forklift when pedestrians are nearby. This online training course covers how operators can safely use their forklifts to get the job done, while preventing injury to themselves and those around them.
