Did you know that according to the National Safety Council 70% of all forklift accidents are a result of operator error? Or that OSHA states that businesses spend over $170 billion (with a B), annually on occupational injuries and illness. If your company is tired of operators not following safety procedures and taking a bite out of profits, then let Barclay show you how to reduce costs and increase performance.
Maintaining a safe work environment and making sure that employees are well trained is a crucial component of any business. Safety training will not only help reduce costs and increase productivity, it can help reduce your company exposure to recently increased OSHA fines and penalties.
The new provision set by OSHA early November 2015 titled, the “Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act Improvements Act of 2015”, has penalties increasing for the first time since 1990. The new fine structure can be as much as 85% higher than before.
With such a large possible exposure, those in the material handling industry should implement a training program that is in compliance with OSHA regulations to stay away from expensive unwanted fines.
Barclay is now offering our customers Yale’s new white paper, “Enhancing Productivity through Safety,” as a guide to developing a comprehensive lift truck safety program.
