Forklift trucks are the leading cause of workplace transport accidents. On average, more than 40 people are injured by forklifts in the UK, every single week – many, seriously so.
A significant factor in maintaining a safe site is training. Forklift operators must be adequately trained to operate their equipment. This means comprehensive training, specific to the type of truck they’re using and, crucially, refreshed at regular intervals. Failure to provide this training could result in a substantial fine or even a prison sentence, in the event of an accident.
