Forklifts are a common sight in many industries. Whether used in warehouses, manufacturing plants, retail applications or elsewhere, forklifts are crucial tools in the daily operations and supply chains of most businesses. Because of this frequent level of use, many operators and nearby pedestrians can become complacent regarding safety protocols. This complacency can have many ill effects, including asset damage, employee discipline, fines, injury amongst others.
Beyond behavioural causation, injuries and fatalities also arise from detectable equipment failure when employees do not properly inspect and assess equipment before use. Safety regulators, forklift manufacturers, and many companies encourage that forklifts be inspected before operating, but these inspections are often ignored or poorly documented. Safety is an obvious reason that these inspections should be conducted regularly.
Here at Forklifters Malta we offer on-site inspection visits, where we can come to the vehicle and inspect without the need of transporting it to our premises.
