Forklift Safety Month warns of life-changing accidents


The UK’s leading training provider is to release a report on site shortcomings and solutions following an industry survey. With October now confirmed as National Forklift Safety Month 2019, employers are being urged to take this as an opportunity to review their working procedures in a bid to drive down what industry leaders describe as the “stubbornly high levels of accidents and injuries”.

According to Tim Waples, CEO of the Fork Lift Truck Association: “Across the UK there are 5 forklift-related accidents every working day. This year alone more than 1300 individuals will sustain life-changing injuries. And, as the ripples spread out, many more thousands of partners, children, parents, friends, workmates and employers will see their worlds turned upside down.”

As one of the busiest and potentially most dangerous times in the logistics calendar, the FLTA believes that October is the perfect time to focus, reassess and make positive change under the banner:

Forklift Safety. It’s no accident.
