Inside Contact the Forkliftaction team
This week marks the National Safety Stand-Down in the United States, a week-long awareness campaign to highlight the dangers of working at heights.
Organisers point out that fatalities caused by falls from elevation continue to be a leading cause of death for construction employees, accounting for 370 of the 991 construction fatalities recorded in 2016.
Those deaths were preventable and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration is backing the campaign to raise fall hazard awareness across the country in an effort to stop fall fatalities and injuries.
With warehouse racking getting taller and more use of high-reach equipment and elevated platforms, this awareness campaign is relevant far beyond the construction industry, and we urge everyone who works at height to take care out there this week  and every week.

The world of materials handling has changed significantly since Forkliftaction’s last feature report on asset management in 2013. The rise of 3PL, the cloud and the internet of things to name just a few, have changed the landscape of data collection and information management, yet it is believed that less than 20% of the 1 million forklifts in the US use telematics.

On May 31, Forkliftaction News will again delve into the global telematics market and issues such as industry uptake, technological advances, customer needs, market trends and more.

Don’t miss this insight into the rapidly evolving world of Fleet and Asset Management.

"I find it amazing that the US doesnt have any accredited awarding bodies that oversee forklift training. We have several recognised ones in the UK and wihle it is not compulsorry to use them, it is highly unusual for an employer to take on an flt operator without recognised accredited training.".
