Forklifts & Pedestrian Safety

In a well-produced video by WorkSafeBC, an independent workplace safety agency governed by a Board of Directors appointed by government in the Canadian province of British Columbia, the importance of pedestrian safety around forklifts (or "lift trucks") is promoted in dramatic fashion. The video states that "more fatalities occur with lift trucks in forest products manufacturing than with any other single piece of machinery" because of a lift truck driver's limited field of vision.

Though WorkSafeBC uses forest products manufacturing facilities in the video to educate workers, forklift/pedestrian safety applies to all industries. Check out the video below:
