Manufacturers back Safety Day
Monday, 6 Jun 2016 ( #773 ) - Washington, DC, United States
News Story
A number of US-based forklift manufacturers are getting behind the third annual National Forklift Safety Day.

UniCarriers Americas (UCA) is joining other members of the Industrial Truck Association (ITA) in observance of the day. The event, chaired by UniCarriers president James J. Radous III, highlights the critical importance that maintenance and operator training play in workplace safety.

UniCarriers Americas will participate in National Forklift Safety Day in several ways, including attending
events in Washington DC, where Radous will speak as the chairman of National Forklift Safety Day. Company representatives will also meet one-on-one with legislators on Capitol Hill.

Free operator training courses will be offered at UCA’s factory stores, Capital Equipment and Handling and New England Industrial Truck, while special promotional pricing will be offered for aftermarket parts in June.

Some UniCarriers dealers will be hosting open house events, including MidAtlantic Industrial Equipment located in York, Pennsylvania.

Meanwhile, CLARK Material Handling Company, underscoring its commitment to the safe use of forklifts and importance of operator training, is hosting a community-wide forklift safety awareness event at its Lexington campus on Tuesday, June 14, 2016.

The safety activities will include an open house and plant tours, a flag-raising ceremony, a forklift rodeo competition and safety demonstrations.

In addition to the activities in Lexington, CLARK executives will also participate in the ITA events in DC.

"It is vitally important to emphasise the safe use of forklifts and proper operator training," says Dennis Lawrence, president and CEO of CLARK. "Forklift safety is not just a one day per year focus. At CLARK, forklift safety is our top priority every day. We are proud to join with the ITA and our fellow forklift manufacturers to raise awareness about the safe use of forklifts and the continual need for operator training."

National Forklift Safety Day, sponsored by the Industrial Truck Association, serves as a focal point for manufacturers to highlight the safe use of forklifts and the importance of operator training. This day provides an opportunity for the industry to educate customers, policymakers and the administration on forklift operating safety practices.
