Avoid work accidents involving forklift trucks and other heavy vehicles in the workplace

We cannot repeat this enough! There are still too many accidents at work involving pedestrians being crushed under or between vehicle(s). Such accidents are horrible and can have catastrophic consequences: serious injuries with long-term disability, invalidity or, at worst, even a fatality as a result.
Personal suffering cannot be offset by compensation. But the material damage to the employer cannot be underestimated either. The production process is delayed or perhaps even shut down. There will be time-consuming labour inspections, a lot of time loss, the company suffers from serious image damage and the costs are considerable.
