Causes of Forklift Accidents

  • Noncompliance with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations and guidelines
  • Poor maintenance or advanced age of the forklift, causing a malfunction
  • Emissions of the forklift or dropped cargo

  • Improperly loaded, overweight or uneven pallets
  • Poor communication with those around the forklift while in operation
  • Using the forklift for recreational purposes such as joyriding and stunt riding

Whether it is an equipment failure or the machine is misused, forklifts are dangerous pieces of heavy machinery that can cause catastrophic injury to employees while on the job.
