This safety video program on Forklift Safety for Pedestrians gives employees the information they need to stay safe when they are walking in an area where forklifts operate.
When you're on foot near cars, trucks, or other vehicles, following basic safety rules can help to avoid accidents and the injuries that they can cause. But the road is not the only place that you can encounter motorized vehicles, they can be present in your work environment as well.
In many facilities the most common of these are forklifts. They may look small, but they can actually weigh up to three times as much as a car. And if one's involved in an accident people could end up being seriously injured, even killed.
That's why both pedestrians and forklift operators must work together to share their space safely, so that they can keep themselves, and each other, out of harm's way.
Areas included in the program include:
- information on how and why forklift accidents involving pedestrians occur,
- safety precautions that facilities can take to help reduce the risk of forklift-related pedestrian incidents,
- how to make sure that a forklift operator is able to see pedestrians,
- keeping a safe distance from an operating forklift,
- walking safely around a forklift,
- safe work practices for pedestrians who are in areas where forklifts operate, and more.
The safety video program comes with a quiz, a scheduling and attendance form, a training certificate, and an employee training log.
