Ensuring your forklift trucks are properly prepared for the colder months of the year makes a significant impact on the health and safety of your operation, as well as productivity. From making sure optimum capability of equipment is assured to avoiding serious incidents and promoting safe use, getting forklifts winter-ready is vital for the businesses that use them. Secure forklift operation always depends on two key factors: ensuring that forklifts are in good working condition and suited to the job they will be used for and making certain your forklift truck operator is fully attentive and sufficiently trained.
