Manufacturing Tool Box Talk: Unloading Trailers with Forklifts Mobile App

Each year, tens of thousands of injuries related to forklifts occur in US workplaces. Many employees are injured when lift trucks are inadvertently driven off loading docks, lifts fall between docks and an unsecured trailer, they are struck by a lift truck, or when they fall while on elevated pallets and tines. Use the Manufacturing Tool Box Talk: Unloading Trailers with Forklifts mobile app to review safety tips with employees that load or unload trucks. The app covers hazards of trailers and trailer inspections. GoCanvas recommends you change your password from time to time.
