Forklift Fiascoes and Lift Truck Lunacy

July 21, 2017
A look at some worst practices in forklift operation and warehouse management, caught on video.

Forklift safety isn't something to be taken lightly, and over the years MH&L has been at the forefront of the industry in preaching its importance, through our articles, news coverage and our past sponsorship of National Forklift Safety Day and attendant events in Washington, D.C.

Back in 2013, we put together Dumb Things People Do with Forklifts, a slideshow of YouTube videos that illustrate what happens when people aren't practicing forklift safety. Drivers and pedestrians get hurt (or worse), equipment gets damaged, loads get ruined, and even entire buildings can be laid waste. Well, believe it or not, dumb things are still happening in the warehouse with forklifts, so in this new series of videos, you’ll see some more examples of what NOT to do when behind the wheel of a lift truck, or anywhere near one in a warehouse. Click on the highlighted text in the descriptions of each video. 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.
