June 8th is National Forklift Safety Day. This annual event was established to raise awareness of forklift safety.
The National Safety Council reports that in 2019 there were 8,140 forklift related injuries and 79 fatalities in the United States. This grim report underscores the importance of forklift safety. Sadly, the fatalities are often from operator misuse and could have been prevented. The best way to prevent forklift accidents from occurring is through education, training, and improved safety awareness. We take forklift safety seriously at Towlift. Below are some safety products and services we offer.
