Improve forklift truck safety in your warehouse
- Approximately six people die every year in the UK as a result of MHE (Materials Handling Equipment) collisions, while there are an estimated 8,000 reported injuries¹
- 85 people are estimated to lose their lives every year in the US due to forklift trucks. That’s one fatality every four days. ²
- And serious injuries? Figures suggest 34,900 per annum, with minor injuries weighing in at 61, 800.
How can these figures be decreased or even eradicated? What is causing these accidents, and as warehouses and distribution centres get bigger and busier how can we make them a safer place for both MHE drivers and pedestrians?
