|Of course, everyone is safety-conscious and I’m sure all readers who operate materials handling equipment try to be vigilant every second they’re on duty.
However, concentration does slip from time to time, and things can go wrong. So it would come as no surprise that our readers have their fair share of ‘near misses’.
This week, we started a thread on our Discussion Forum for just this kind of story. Tell us about the time you narrowly escaped - and what could have gone seriously wrong had luck (or skill) not been on your side.
