Online forklift stability training can aid licenced forklift operators in expanding upon their training and help to diminish operational risk. Also, this training can help workers and pedestrians in the vicinity to better understand the risks and responsibilities around forklifts.
In the last two years, 12 workers have died in forklift-related accidents in UK workplaces. Significantly, an alarming 42% of forklift accidents involve people being crushed by forklifts tipping over as a result of instability. Further, approximately 5 UK workers bear life-changing injuries every single day from the 1,300+ forklift-related injuries reported annually.
Each of those accidents and injuries were avoidable.
Forklift incidents not only carry severe life consequences, but also major financial costs as well. For instance, it’s common for serious incidents to cost organisations in excess of £50,000, with many as high as £200,000. To explain, direct costs like medical expenses and repairs, and indirect costs such as lost productivity, quickly adds up.
Moreover, injured workers are often unable to return to work for many weeks or even months after forklift-related accidents.
So, never underestimate forklift risks. Time and money are often the key issues of workplace training, but the price of taking shortcuts is far higher. Our online Forklift Stability training is both time-saving and cost-effective, presenting essential workplace safety training with engaging video eLearning.
This new video eLearning course presents important forklift stability information that can help instil proactive safety behaviours in workers.
