How to Reduce Forklift Related Injuries with Pfannenberg’s Industrial Signaling Devices


Working in a busy environment like production plants or warehouses can be dangerous for your employees if their security is not ensured at all times. Most of the time, these work environments are very loud and injuries can occur when a worker doesn’t see or hear a danger around them like a overhead crane or a moving forklift.

OSHA estimates that over 96,000 forklift incidents (including non-serious, serious, and fatal) occur per year in the United States. These statistics also show that each year, more than 1 in 10 forklifts are involved in an industry-related accident.

According to OSHA, 70 percent of workplace accidents can be avoided with proper training and safety procedures.
