Did you know 70% of all industrial accidents are caused by operator error? The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) estimates these accidents were preventable. At Hugg & Hall, safety is our number one priority, and we want you to stay safe as well. Forklift safety and operator training will be in the spotlight today, June 14, as a part of National Forklift Safety Day. This day is a yearly reminder to be steadfast in creating a culture of safety. We have developed a daily operator checklist to ensure you begin and end your workday as safely as possible. If you or your business needs operator training, we offer that as well!
