We have said it time and time again, and we’re about to say it again. We cannot stress enough the importance of health and safety in the workplace. From correct moving and handling practices to proper signage there are a host of responsibilities you have as an employer.
And, although we haven’t previously covered it in great detail, fork lift driving is a major factor.
Whilst our Facebook page is all fun and games with our #FridayFail, which often features dangerous near misses with warehouse fork lifts, the potential for harm is very real. Have a read below as we discuss what provisions you need to put in place to ensure the safety of your employees.
The powered industrial truck is used to lift and move materials short distance and is therefore ideal for use in the warehouse and similar environments.
However, forklifts can be particularly dangerous in the warehouse. In fact, on average they are forklifts are involved in a quarter of all workplace transport accidents which is on the whole largely due to insufficient training on forklifts for employees.

There is no specific requirement detailing the length of training as there are many issues that will affect the rate of an individual’s learning. Simply, training should be as long as it takes to meet all of the requirements.
In addition, it is important that even those who have received previous training, and therefore considered experienced, are routinely monitored in the workplace and when necessary tested or required to undergo refresher forklift training.
We have compiled a handful of fork lift safety rules, as well as some excellent tips, to ensure that both employer and employee, as well as additional warehouse employees, are not put in a position of danger.
