The Importance Of Creating A Culture Of Safety For Your Business

Safety touches every employee throughout every organization, from the front office staff to planning and logistics, especially heavy equipment operators. Over the past two years, your business, like many others, has experienced new changes and challenges.

You have likely welcomed many new employees to your workforce, including additional training and onboarding measures. You’ve also likely had to bring in additional material to meet the demands of your customers, which created new material flows that employees may not be familiar with. You likely have inventory in locations that employees don’t expect them to be in. All of these things can cause variations in our operations.

Promoting awareness and ongoing education is one of the best ways to reduce forklift accidents and injuries. As businesses face high rates of turnover it is more important than ever to ensure your operation has safety and training procedures in place.

“The main message is that safety is a culture. To make safety a priority in companies, that message has to come from the top, and we have to live it ourselves, day in and day out. Forklift safety is not a one-time issue and that it is as important for pedestrians as it is for operators.”

Jonathan Dawley, President and CEO of KION North America, National Forklift Safety Day 2022 Chair
