Dumb Things People Do with Forklifts

Here at Material Handling & Logistics we preach forklift safety, and sometimes the most effective way to get that point across is to show evidence of what happens when people—either through carelessness, inexperience or just plain stupidity—don’t treat forklifts and the distribution environment they work in with proper respect.

In this series of YouTube videos, you’ll get a chance to see some examples of what NOT to do when behind the wheel of a lift truck. Click on the highlighted text in the descriptions of each video, which you'll find in the upper right corner of the page. If you know of any videos you think should be immortalized here, contact us at [email protected] and we’ll consider adding them to the Forklift Hall of Shame.
