March 18, 2015 – A new report generated by OSHA highlights the real costs associated with on the job injuries, who pays them and how this impacts the employee and taxpayers.
Whether an employee is working on a high-rise building or driving a forklift, employers have the responsibility, and what we feel is an obligation to protect their employees from injury. By investing in training and safety, employers get fewer injuries, lower costs, more productivity and an improved satisfaction which often leads to less turn over. But all companies do not feel that way. Many are finding ways to avoid responsibility for providing safe working conditions for their most dangerous jobs.

Forklift safety is every operator’s most important job. According to OSHA, one in 15 forklift-related accidents is caused by improper maintenance. A thorough pre-shift inspection can identify maintenance problems before they cause an accident.
Safety begins with knowing as much as possible about each forklift model so it’s extremely important to read and fully understand the operator’s manual before operating the forklift.
