Thoughts on Forklift Accidents

People are injured when basic safety rules are not followed. Being crushed by a forklift accounts for 42% of forklift deaths each year(OSHA). However, according to OSHA, 70 percent of forklift accidents are avoidable. Many questions need to be investigated here to ensure the family receives the answers they deserve. If other parties share in fault for this death, they need to be held accountable.
