On Thursday February 23, 2012 the CMHDS presented “Putting the Brakes on Lift Truck Accidents” a discussion forum & breakfast meeting.
Warehousing leads all other sub-sectors in B.C. with 7 out of every 100 workers being injured annually; almost double the rate of any other industry sub-sector.
Two of the top three injury types are lift-truck related injuries or what WorkSafeBC classifies as “Struck By” and “Lower Extremity Injuries”.
During the breakfast meeting attendees discussed causes, effects, experiences, challenges and shared best practices.
