Editor Allan Leibowitz comments on the news of the week
Australian forklift insiders are preparing for Forklift Safety Week, which will be marked in the third week of September this year. Of course, in the shadow of COVID-19, the events will be staged online. While Australia is a small market and far away from the materials handling hubs of the United States and Europe, the upcoming event is a reminder of the need to continue highlighting safety issues. It is unfortunate that forklift safety is not marked globally on the same day or week - but at least the efforts of Forkliftaction have succeeded in aligning commemorations on both sides of the Atlantic - in the UK and in the US. Next stop is Europe, Asia, Africa, South America, the Middle East and Australasia. Come on folks, let's get it together for forklift safety!
