Additional Comments
How can we allow operators who forget to check the forklift before using them? We have electrical sockets that pose shock hazards and fire extinguishers lying on the floor pose such a trip hazard. We can improve industrial safety by empowering our workers to do these inspections regularly and take a proactive approach to mitigating these risks.
