Obstructed Views & Poor Lighting

Use the proper lighting and mirrors to ensure workers have clear lines of visibility. Poor visibility/lighting is one of the leading causes of forklift accidents.

Look around your facility for other common slip, trip, and fall hazards:

Dropped Objects

Make sure workers tether items they might drop while working at heights or use a scissor lift to bring large or unwieldy items to a higher shelf.

Boxes Placed too Close to the Edge of a Shelf

Confirm that boxes are secure and not hanging over the edge. A small bump can cause boxes to fall.
