In an SME or a multinational with thousands of employees, it is difficult not to see at least one forklift circulating. The inevitable situations of pedestrian-forklift cohabitation generate an increased risk of collision with damage, often serious for pedestrians, not to mention collision situations between forklift trucks which are costly both in terms of human and material costs.
In theory, any organization can be classified into one of the two following categories:
1- Businesses that choose to handle OHS questions on a case-by-case or day-to-day basis.
2- Businesses that prefer to handle the health and safety of their human capital in a more proactive manner.
In Quebec in 2013, three workers died and 601 were injured in accidents caused by forklifts. Also, between 2017 and 2018, 8 fatal accidents were directly or indirectly related to the use of forklifts.
