Overturn fatalities decreasing
IRVINE, CA, United States

Fatalities resulting from forklift tip-overs have decreased since 1999, says Toyota Material Handling USA.

The US Department of Labor reported 118 fatalities resulting from forklift overturns from 1999 to 2003, which equates to 23 deaths a year.

However, overturn fatalities for all brands have decreased 13.6 per cent since 1999. Industry-wide, there has also been an overall 35.5 per cent reduction in overturn, collision, loss of control and falls from forklifts for the same period.
