|It’s interesting how our Safety First contributors continue to find new aspects of forklift safety to highlight in each column - and this week’s offering is no different.
The diversity of subject matter shows just how complex workplace safety can be. It also shows the level of vigilance required to address the wide range of risks associated with machinery.
Of course, the column is not the only safety resource here at Forkliftaction.com. There is an active safety thread in our Discussion Forum and that regularly includes some useful insights from fleet managers and safety advisers.
So, there’s no reason not to be safe this week - and every week.
