||One person is killed every 3.5 days by forklifts in the United States, with 20,000 additional workers seriously injured each year. Many of these accidents are caused by unsafe driving behaviour. OSHA has identified forklifts as the sixth-leading cause of safety violations. There are more than one million forklifts currently in operation across the United States. This article discusses the use of monitoring devices as an effective means of promoting safe forklift driving behaviour.
