SGIA Safety Package Focuses on Proper Forklift Protocol

SGIA has released its newest Safety Package for the specialty imaging community, which covers important information about forklift safety compliance.

"It's critical that employers develop and apply a training program based on basic operations of the forklift used in their facility," said Brian Condon, SGIA Government Affairs Associate. "The latest SGIA Safety Package is a convenient, easy-to-read guide that helps specialty imaging companies ensure they're following the proper procedures for securing a safe workplace."

The Safety Package includes two newsletters that can be used as educational aids for company owners and managers providing tips about OSHA training requirements as well as an overview of working with forklifts. The package also includes a safety poster, which can be used to remind employees of the dangers involved with forklift docking.

SGIA provides these important safety resources to its membership in response to the recent release of forklift hazard alerts by both state and federal safety agencies.
