Forklift truck accidents - causal factors
For the purpose of benefiting from an examination of these events in order to identify the range of causal factors an HSE Specialist inspector report Safety and industrial lift trucks: a survey of investigated accidents and incidents [ April 1997 to March 2001] has been published.
It has collated accidents and incidents associated with industrial lift trucks that were investigated by HSE inspectors over the period, identifying a number of common reasons for accidents and incidents and the causal factors associated with them. The material may prove useful to assist in the development of safety requirements for the design and use of forklifts and have implications for training content.
