Forklifts can be very dangerous for both operators and employees out on the floor. In fact, 20 percent of all forklift incidents involve pedestrians being struck by a lift truck. In such an incident, it's the pedestrian that will suffer an injury or even death. These workers can avoid this by paying attention to the surroundings, staying a safe distance away from forklifts and following proper procedures. That's the purpose of this program--to show viewers the precautions they can take to prevent serious, often traumatic injuries that occur when forklifts come into contact with pedestrians. Topics include the importance of forklift safety, operating characteristics of forklifts, walking safely around forklift traffic, staying out of the path of a forklift, operator and pedestrian awareness of one another, following safe work practices and avoiding unsafe acts.
