1st – 31st October – Safety Month

During October, for the last 11 years, the Fork Lift Truck Association (FLTA) has annually campaigned to help raise awareness of key issues affecting forklift truck safety.

 

A forklift truck is one of the most useful pieces of workplace equipment but also one of the most dangerous.  On average, three people end up in hospital every day form an accident involving a forklift.  Unfortunately, most people who work with them, fail to appreciate the true dangers or simply become complacent.

 

During October, the FLTA are providing free resources on their website to help spread the campaign message “Forklift Safety – it’s no accident”
