We are delighted to announce that we have renewed our Forklift accreditation with RTITB. This means we are still one of the only companies nationwide to offer this fully certified Training.
Forklift trucks are known to be one of the most hazardous vehicles in the workplace;
The most common types of incidents involving forklift trucks are:
- Struck by a moving truck
- Struck by a load falling from the truck
- Overturn of the truck
- Fall from a height
- Trapped between the mast and overhead guard
Other less common incidents involve injuries due to fire or explosion due to replenishing the energy source or unsuitability of the lift truck for the environment.
Crush and foot injuries tend to be common injuries suffered by pedestrians. Whilst drivers tend to suffer injuries caused as a result of truck instability, which result in the truck tipping over and crushing the driver.
