According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, there are approximately twenty thousand serious injuries each and every year in America and more or less one hundred fatalities because of the result of lift truck incidents.

Each and every different forklift or lift truck has various load capacities. Where a load is concerned, every unit would differ for specified maximum weight and forward center gravity. Injuries for employees often happen from collision with pedestrians, falls from the forklift, forklift overturn or crushing incidents. Operator falls could take place as the worker descends or ascends into the driver cab or becomes ejected from the machinery in the event of an incident or a collision. Forklifts can overturn due to being overloaded, or having an unequal center or gravity of the load or traveling over an uneven surface that can cause the vehicle to topple over. It is significant for other co-workers to observe strict preventive policies if working next to the forklift. Without adequate safety measures, pedestrian co-workers are at risk from accidents or collisions associated with an unsafe cargo.
