Forklift safety fronts annual campaign

Safetember is here again! The annual month-long safety campaign, spearheaded by the Fork Lift Truck Association (FLTA), highlights key points regarding the safe management, use and maintenance of forklifts.

At BJB Lift Trucks, safety is always the top priority whether they are repairing equipment or training operators how to use forklifts safely and efficiently. As long-standing members of the FLTA, BJB always embrace and promote the safety ethics of the FLTA Safetember campaign, not only during the month, but year-round.

The Grimsby-based materials handling equipment specialists recently underwent the rigorous FLTA site audit which examined all aspects of business operations from office – to workshop – to training centre. Director, Phil Flowers, commented, “We have been members of the FLTA for over 30 years and we firmly believe in following their guidelines when it comes to safety within our industry. The audit was very intense and, with the help of the FLTA and their excellent resources, we soon hope to become one of the few Safe Site approved sites in the country. What we learn from the FLTA enables us to provide better and safer services to our customers.”
