Work Accidents » Forklift accidents

Forklifts are responsible for a significant number of workplace injuries. This can be attributed to improper training, poor workplace layout and a lack of appropriate machinery maintenance. According to the Health and Safety Executive there are around 8,000 forklift accidents reported every year. Employers have a duty of care to their staff and must ensure that proper risk assessments are carried out to establish any points of concern.

If a forklift accident has occurred then the employer can be made to pay compensation if they are found to be negligent. The most common types of accident are overturning forklifts, staff being hit by trucks, heavy loads being dropped or pushed onto a person, forklifts trapping people or pinning them to a wall and collisions with stationary items. The most common cause of death in workplace transport is people being hit by plant or vehicles such as forklifts.
