In honor of the second annual National Forklift Safety Day on June 9, 2015, sponsored by the Industrial Truck Association (ITA), The Raymond Corporation is sharing best practices in operator and pedestrian safety by offering a free poster to serve as a best practices reminder to operators and pedestrians.
“With labor being more than 70 percent of lift truck ownership costs, operator training and accountability are critical to a company’s operational efficiency and profitability,” says Michael Field, chief executive office for The Raymond Corporation.
Raymond provides a lift truck operator training program called Safety On The Move® that helps customers comply with their non-delegable Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) duty for all industrial lift truck operators to be trained and certified in the use of their equipment. Raymond also provides an integrated suite of fleet management solutions called iWAREHOUSE Essential™ and iWAREHOUSE Enterprise™ that can collect information about the lift truck and the operator to assist in best practices in the warehouse. Deriving best practices from both the training program and management solutions, Raymond created the poster to help provide a number of guidelines for those who work in a warehouse environment.
