Shoppa’s stays very busy reducing operational costs and increasing productivity for their customers. But on National Forklift Safety Day, it gives Shoppa’s the opportunity to take a step back and highlight the safe use of forklifts and the importance of operator training.
National Forklift Safety Day is an event sponsored by the Industrial Truck Association held once a year. Its intent is to provide the material handling industry the opportunity to educate customers about safe forklift operation.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, from 2011 to 2014, 261 workers were killed in forklift accidents, where the industrial truck was the primary cause.
We want our customers to take precautions for the possible dangers when operating forklifts and other material handling equipment. To facilitate this, we offer professional operator training courses.
