Description:

In April of this year, a 54-year-old worker at a vehicle manufacturing plant in Indiana was struck and killed by a forklift. While these machines can be largely beneficial, they are not without serious risks—ones that employers may be liable for.

On average, 70 workers are killed each year in forklift incidents and several thousand are injured. Common causes are the forklift overturned, struck something, or ran off the loading dock, or the worker was pinned between the forklift and an object, hit by a forklift or material, or fell from a forklift.

There are a host of potential distractions that could compromise forklift safety and it’s important to ensure that your forklift safety program addresses all potential issues. To mitigate the risk of costly and tragic accidents, employers must address the training of both operators and others working in traffic area, the ongoing maintenance and inspection of equipment, and operator and supervisor accountability.

Join us for an in-depth webinar on how to master traditional and emerging forklift safety issues with a comprehensive, compliant program that addresses all facets of forklift management so you can minimize the risk of accidents caused by distracted driving, faulty equipment, and other issues.

You’ll learn:

  • Specific hazards of forklifts—and how OSHA regulations and ANSI standards generally apply
  • Best practices for indoor and indoor-outdoor forklift operation
  • Practical strategies for addressing distracted forklift operation
  • Why training for pedestrians is just as important as training for forklift operators—and recommendations on how to go about that
  • Essential forklift safety-training strategies—and how to get supervisors involved in overseeing safe forklift operations
  • Load-rating considerations to be aware of and the importance of following manufacturer recommendations for safe forklift operation
  • What to include in your pre-operation forklift and inspection checklists
  • OSHA compliant forklift maintenance and recordkeeping processes

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
