Powered industrial truck operators have two critical jobs to account for in addition to their daily tasks: keeping themselves safe and ensuring pedestrian safety in their work environments. After all, forklifts can weigh an average of 9,000 lbs – that’s 3-4 times the weight of a car! Controlling that much weight is a big responsibility. However, pedestrian safety can also be increased if non-operators take simple precautions when walking in areas where trucks are used. Fox Valley Safety’s pedestrian awareness training will get your workers on the right path.
