Forklift Accidents: Warehouses have been popping up all across New Jersey in the recent years. In these warehouses there are many large pieces of machinery and equipment. In the fast pace working environment of warehousing and distribution it is easy to put production ahead of safety and this is when accidents occur. Safety should be everyone’s goal in a working environment above all else. Unfortunately this is not always the case. Some of the most common pieces of machinery in a warehouse that cause accidents are pallet jacks and forklifts. Everyone who operates these pieces of equipment should be following the OSHA rules and guidelines that are put in place to keep everyone in the facility as safe as possible.
