Raising forklift safety awareness

July 23, 2018 By    

The Industrial Truck Association (ITA) held its fifth annual National Forklift Safety Day.

The event is an opportunity for forklift manufacturers to highlight the safe use of forklifts, the value of operator training and the need for daily equipment checks.

“ITA’s National Forklift Safety Day has become a yearly event to educate customers, policymakers and the administration on forklift operating safety practices,” says Brian Feehan, president of ITA.

This year’s speakers, along with elected officials and industry representatives, discussed the effectiveness of training to support successful safety programs across a broad spectrum of industries. The event raises awareness on the value of safety to those who produce, operate and work on or around forklifts.

Propane holds a significant market share in class 4 and 5 forklifts.
