National Forklift Safety Day is here and Barclay is excited to celebrate and encourage safe forklift operator practices.

Sponsored by the Industrial Truck Association, the 2nd Annual National Forklift Day is being held in Washington, D.C. where leaders in the forklift industry will come together to highlight the importance of operator training to prevent forklift accidents and injuries.

This daylong event provides the opportunity to educate and inform customers, policymakers and the current administration on safe practices and encourages safe forklift operation techniques. National Forklift Safety Day speakers include representatives from the Occupational Health & Safety Administration, leaders in the forklift industry and a representative with jurisdictional oversight of the Department of Labor. 

While National Forklift Safety Day is only a day long, Barclay believes in practicing forklift safety everyday. We offer a variety of operator safety-training courses including forklift operator training and OSHA compliant safety training.
