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.

If you experience or see a safety concern on your assignment, please contact our Safety Hotline at 803-760-1441 or contact your local GPS office.  If you are injured on your assignment, please call MEDCOR at 1-800-775-5866 then contact your local GPS office.

Safeguarding GPS employees by sustaining a culture that promotes safety awareness.
