The dangers of mismanagement around the forklift
Collision with a pedestrian is among the top 3 causes of fatalities related to a forklift. This is due to the fact that the risks of collision are numerous and vary depending on the work environment.
In addition, the forklift is a machine which moves constantly in an environment which also changes constantly.
The parking and traffic conditions of this machine and the environment in which it operates differ depending on the company and the context. The work planning is never the same, as is the layout of the premises. Note that the forklifts themselves are available in different versions.
Given the uniqueness of each situation, it is up to each company to put the right security measures in place. In particular, an efficient work planning is necessary and visibility must constantly be optimal. Finally, precise rules must be established and the risks must be known to everyone in order to better prevent accidents.
