|Forkliftaction.com Safety First columnist Rob Vetter never clocks off. Even when he’s on holidays in the Caribbean, the seasoned safety supporter remains alert to forklift safety issues.
This week, he shares some interesting observations about how some societies value safety and others are so much more laid-back.
Rob, of course, is one of our panel of experts who share different takes on forklift safety on a regular basis.
And we also have a growing stable of bloggers to shed light on a range of relevant topics.
If you’d like to nominate an expert we should call on - or perhaps volunteer to contribute yourself, please let us know.
