Tips to Improve Forklift Safety

Training Videos

Throughout the industry, there are many people that don’t give a second thought to Forklift safety, either through lack of time, the probability of an accident occurring or just plain ignorance.
 
Whatever the reason, the cost of safety is just too high to avoid consideration or to not invest in, and if this is the route taken it may be just a matter of time before something happens that makes an employer take note.
 
It’s of paramount importance that time and effort is spent on making a workplace as safe as possible, by educating staff and operators of the dangers of forklift trucks in the workplace.
 
To assist employers help keep their staff safe, alongside the safe operation of forklifts, the regular training courses to be provided as well as regular maintenance of the vehicles here are a few tips;
 
Use Videos
 
Over time, the impact of regular training courses lessens and the finer details become overlook or forgotten about however, the use of video footage is an easy way to keep staff updated and is fairly low in cost to produce. All staff to access the training videos on a company intranet or via link on email for a quick way to reiterate the safe operating of forklifts and general safety in the workplace.
 
Offer regular in-house refresher training
 
Keeping all staff (not just those who operate a forklift) updated on how to work safely within a workplace can help reduce injury and accidents.
 
Those that work on foot in the vicinity of a forklift should be just as informed of the dangers as forklift operators.
 
Bespoke training programs can be offered in the workplace, saving the cost of external training courses and carried out at a time to suit the employer.
 
These are just a couple of ways you can improve safety in the workplace but these ideas shouldn’t be a substitute for regular refresher training offered by professionals. Forklift Agency can provide you with health and safety approved training and offer the courses at a time and place to suit you.
