There's no getting around it: unsafe forklift driving can result in serious accidents. The British Safety Council says that 25% of workplace transport injuries result directly from forklift truck accidents, and these injuries can be life-changing.

That's why it's in everyone's interest to ensure forklift driving safety – to protect your workers, drivers, fleet and your business too.
With that in mind, read on for 5 forklift driving mistakes you shouldn't ignore.
