Is your employer at fault?
In any work situation, your employer is responsible for providing you with a safe working environment. This means making sure equipment is safe for use and functioning correctly, lighting is clear and floors are dry, and that everyone using potentially dangerous machinery has adequate training and safety apparel.
The Forklift Truck Association states that especially when dealing with forklifts, employers are obliged to carry out and provide:
- Refresher training
- Risk assessment
- Thorough examinations
- Safety briefings
- Overall safe working conditions
