GPS Safety Tip: Forklift Safety
GPS where Safety is Everybody’s Job…My Job…Your Job!
GPS Safety Tip of the Week…Forklift Safety! Forklifts are a must in an industrial/warehouse environment. However, forklifts present many challenges from pedestrians to the weight of loads.
Never operate a forklift without proper training or pick up a load that is over the maximum weight for that forklift. Always, operate a forklift at a safe speed, pay attention to your surroundings, and wear your safety belt. Never jump off a forklift if it is turning over, just hang on and ride it out.
