AFITA Forklift Safety Seminar

Managing your workplace more safely

Every year forklifts continue to cause workplace deaths and injuries resulting in substantial financial and human costs for workers, industry and the community.

Here at the AFITA we believe that forklift incidents can be prevented, when manufacturers, businesses and workers, all work together to improve forklift safety in the workplace.

That’s why we were proud to present the 2019 annual Forklift Safety Seminar in Sydney on Wednesday 22 May in conjunction with the 2019 Workplace Health and Safety Show.

The seminar  ensures you are kept up to date with the latest forklift safety standards, guidelines, training and technology to help make your workplace as safe as it can be.

“Every year in Australia there are workplace deaths and injuries involving forklifts,” says Steve Takacs, President of the AFITA National Council. These incidents have a huge financial and social impact on workers, families, businesses and the community.

“That’s why it’s important that every business has an individual who is responsible for driving its forklift safety culture.

“If you are the person responsible for forklift safety within your business, we invite you to attend our 2019 Forklift Safety Seminar.

“These seminars ensure you are kept up to date with the latest forklift safety standards, guidelines, training and technology. Alternatively, if forklift safety is the responsibility of another person within your business, it would be greatly appreciated if you could forward this invitation to them.”
