Common Forklift Hazards and Safety Failures

Typical Settings for Forklift Use:

  • Grocery stores
  • Construction sites
  • Warehouses
  • Manufacturing facilities

While these are heavy machines, their small sizes make them prone to toppling over when parked on uneven surfaces. What’s more, their speed can lead to collisions with property and people. It is essential that forklifts are properly maintained and operated to minimize the risk of accidents.

Unfortunately, worker’s compensation can be limited in the financial support that it offers, and not everyone has adequate coverage.
