Every workplace has its own safety challenges, whether you operate in loud, dimly lit, hot, or any other less than optimal environment. If your work environment is loud, it might be difficult for pedestrians to hear or identify the location of forklifts operating nearby causing potential accidents. A dark workspace can cause similar issues. If pedestrians and other forklifts can’t see each other or know there are others around, the results can be serious. Narrow aisles can be difficult to navigate, making it dangerous for both forklift operators and anyone working alongside them, particularly in intersecting aisles. Being aware of the workplace challenges you face is the first step in overcoming them. After identifying potential safety issues, the next step is to figure out how to overcome them. The safety of your employees should be the top priority.
