In today’s incredibly fast-paced working environments, the forklift has been instrumental in lifting, moving, and storing bulky loads around construction sites, warehouses, dockyards, recycling facilities, manufacturing units, and many more. It has sheer importance in the workplace as it makes operations fast and efficient. Even though it is considered as a useful piece of equipment, it has the tendency to be dangerous and cause fatal accidents to both the forklift operator and any bystanders in the area. In addition, forklift accidents hurt organizations financially in terms of property or material damage.
