Why should walkways and truck passages be separated?

Forklifts and industrial trucks are one of the most important and widely used pieces of equipment to lift and transport materials for short distances. Therefore, truck accidents in which workers are hit and seriously injured are quite frequent.

What are the most common truck accidents?

The most common type of incident is when a forklift overturning. When a forklift falls over, some drivers try to escape rather than staying inside the vehicle, putting them in harm’s way. Another one is accidents which involves injuries when pedestrian being hit by a powered vehicle. Or incidents by fallen objects, people being caught or compressed by equipment.
