NEW YORK CITY
Forklifts a.k.a lift trucks are powered industrial trucks that are widely used in construction jobs because they achieve tasks that no one worker can do by himself. These vehicles save contractors and construction companies a lot of labor and man-hours. But when a lift truck is used without proper care and caution, it could cause injuries to the operator or other workers and sometimes lead to tragic deaths.
Construction workers forklifts on a regular basis aware that how dangerous they can be. In an environment that often stresses productivity over safety, accidents and injuries are likely to occur. Some of the most common ways by which these accidents occur include when workers are run over by a passing lift truck; when forklift operators fall off their truck and are crushed or run over by it; or in back-up collisions when the operator fails to spot another worker on the site or on a loading dock.
