It is essential that forklift operators hold valid licences and undergo appropriate practical training. But forklift safety eLearning can build upon that knowledge and help manage workplace forklift risks for both operators and pedestrians.
Tragically, there have been at least 4 forklift-related deaths in Australian workplaces in 2019. Furthermore, over 400 forklift-related injuries occur in both Victoria and NSW annually, with 280+ claims for crush injuries in Queensland. All of which are preventable.
Not only are there serious health and well-being costs, but also these incidents can seriously impact an organisations bottom line. For starters, the average cost of a serious forklift-related injury claim is around $11,000, not including expenses. What’s more, a worker’s recovery time from serious forklift-related injury is, on average, 5 to 6 weeks.
