Forklift trucks are responsible for a high number of accidents at work due to the size and weight of them. Also because of their size and weight, being involved in this type of accident at work can result in death.
Bad workplace layout is a significant cause of forklift accidents at work. Loading bays are especially dangerous as there are a lot of heavy items being moved and a lot of people and machinery moving in different directions. The loading bay should be designed to ensure the most efficient and safe working method is used to avoid the number of casualties.
Lack of employee training also contributes to the high number of accidents at work caused by forklifts. Even those employees who do not drive forklift trucks but work with or near them should be trained and warned of potential accidents.
