National Forklift Safety Day is a Chance to Research, Reflect and Improve
Fifth Annual National Forklift Safety Day
The forklift industry will be in Washington, D.C., this spring to take part in the fifth annual National Forklift Safety Day. This event, scheduled for June 12 in the nation’s capital and across the country, will provide an opportunity for the industry to educate customers, the public, and government officials about the safe use of forklifts and the importance of proper operator training. Taking the time to ensure that your workforce is aware of these forklift operations and procedures is an important way to ensure an environment of pedestrian safety for your facility.
