National Forklift Safety Day June 8th
Maintain best practices regarding forklift safety
Once again June has come and with it National Forklift Safety Day. Now working in its eighth year, this program continues to serve as an opportunity for forklift manufacturers and the industry to highlight the safe use of forklifts, the value of operator training, and the need for daily equipment checks.
Cisco-Eagle maintains a heavy focus on forklift safety as one of our main objectives for increasing operations safety success. To help prepare and train during National Forklift Safety Day, we’re highlighting some of our past content from the year so you have multiple resources towards a safer forklift environment:
In this installment of our Shoptalk series, we discuss the different styles and types of forklift safety lights available, and how to choose the right light for your operation. Each lighting option offers a way to improve the visibility of your forklifts while keeping the attention of pedestrians that are sharing the facility floor.
Finding the right accessories to enhance your forklift safety and productivity is important for every operation. Our new guide showcases some of the products we offer to protect your forklift and those around it. Focusing on forklift warning lights and the latest pedestrian detection systems, while highlighting safer loading/unloading options as well, this guide offers in-depth information so you can find the right safety accessory for your forklift operations.
While not as exciting as some of the latest forklift safety gadgets and lighting, marking your facility floor with tape is an affordable resource to further highlight safety concerns. Floor marking can establish pedestrian-only paths, keep employees away from imbalanced or unsafe loads, and establish traffic controls for drivers.
Along with resourceful articles like these, we offer items like our forklift & pedestrian safety survey designed to help identify areas within your daily forklift/worker interaction areas.
