Inside Forkliftaction.com Contact the Forkliftaction team
Forkliftaction has long supported operator safety, and we have been involved in a number of initiatives to highlight the need for skills development, including various safety rodeos.
And while we recognise the need to promote driver skills, this week, we applaud the efforts of UK safety organisation RTITB, which recently concluded its first Lift Truck Instructor of the Year competition.
It is important to acknowledge the hard work and skill of forklift instructors and we congratulate RTITB on the initiative. Of course, we also congratulate the inaugural champ, Ken Saward of Mentor FLT Training, and all the others who participated.
Let's be safe out there ...

Does diesel fuel have a future in the materials handling?
As electric forklift trucks continue to increase their share of the materials handling market and interest in renewable energy grows, is diesel power heading towards extinction?

For many applications, a diesel lift truck is a better choice than a battery powered alternative, and you may be surprised to learn that in some cases diesel actually offers greater environmental sustainability than electric.

"I have heard that VW will stop production of the engines used in forklifts. Anyone else heard this? What engine will the german manufactures use? Maybe the kubota supplied through PSI.".
heightlift, United Kingdom
"Personnel working in warehouses to maintain the work and operate machinery to a high and safe standard is difficult. The budgeting for the warehouse salary is low since it is normally a Non Revenue section. New personnel should be held on probation for at least a pay period to observe their ability to be effective and safe before putting them on a $10-$100K forklift with a possibility of injuring or killing a person.".

"Your best bet is to find out which local dealer does the best job. Support is the most important thing.".
