It is therefore crucial forklift operators recognise how the conditions within your worksite can increase the risk of forklift accidents.
The working environment plays an important role in safe forklift operation and measures should be taken to minimise risk where possible.
Below we examine some of the most common conditions that are likely to increase the risk of forklift accidents in the workplace.
The risk: Forklifts are prone to tipping over on uneven surfaces.
What you can do:
ZoneSafe includes a data reporting and analysis feature to help identify key high-risk areas within the worksite so that additional measures and training can be applied in a targeted way
