A belated happy Forklift Safety Day.
June 10 was the first annual National Forklift Safety Day in the USA, complete with a special event on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.
Although, we could have scheduled this edition a couple of days early to coincide with this special day, here at Forkliftaction.com, we believe every day is forklift safety day.
Still, we applaud the Industrial Truck Association for highlighting forklift safety and for its efforts to educate customers, policymakers and the public at large.
So folks, even though the day has passed, let’s be careful out there.
