Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
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.

"What is it like to work for a Crown Dealer? It seems like lately I keep hearing stories about Crown losing a lot of sales people. You always used to hear about Crown's stability. Is the company changing or does anyone have any insight in to what it is like to work for Crown?".

"Always good to hear a training success story,".

"How high are you lifting the load & how heavy is it? Might be better to have a little extra residual weight capacity available from your choice of truck. BT RRE Reflex you could pick between 1.6, 1.8 or 2.0 ton versions for your application. Whats the dealer service & parts back up like for all 4 of your choices? No point buying a truck if the engineer / parts back up then leaves you waiting. ".
