Clarion Article, "Curbing Forklift Hazards," Featured in OH&S Magazine

Posted by Erin Earley on 19th Aug 2012

Forklifts are essential in many industries to transport and distribute materials. But, they also present major workplace safety concerns. Forklifts account for 85 fatalities and 34,900 serious injuries per year, according to OSHA estimates. To reduce risk and avoid these tragic workplace accidents and injuries, proper training reinforced by safety signs is key to protecting workers, visitors, and subcontractors.

When it comes to mitigating risk and going about work in the safest way possible, there are new methods for communicating safety that provide better ways to warn than what is currently found in most warehouses and facilities.

The status quo often means using a hodgepodge of safety signs, haphazard placement, and years-old standards. On the other hand, the new technology means using a system of safety signs, applied semiotics for color coding, placement, and precise sizing, and ANSI and ISO best-practice standards.

Why are these new methods better? Read the Clarion article featured in the latest issue of Occupational Health & Safety Magazine to learn more. Authored by Clarion CEO Geoffrey Peckham, the piece explains a best-practice approach to forklift safety signs, illustrated through a real-life application.
