|The US forklift industry has just marked National Forklift Safety Day, raising awareness of the need to be careful, considered and cognisant.
In past years, some people lamented the fragmented approach to safety awareness, with various countries organising their own safety days or weeks.
Does it really matter when we pause to reflect on safety? Surely, it's more important that we do so than when we do it.
As it's written in the Bhagavad Gita:
"To but One Goal are marching everywhere,
All human beings, though they may seem to walk
Divergent paths ..."
And if that goal is safety, all that is important is that we're heading in the same direction.
