The Australian Industrial Truck Association (AITA) is holding a forklift safety seminar in conjunction with the Workplace Health & Safety Show in Melbourne on Wednesday 23rd and Thursday 24th May 2018.

The AITA seminar, titled “Forklift safety starts with you”, will be held on Wednesday 23rd May 2018 from 1.30pm to 4.30pm, and will focus on: forklift attachments; user safety; standards; licencing and training; and other aspects of the use and maintenance of industrial lift trucks.

Every year in Australia there are workplace deaths and injuries involving forklifts. 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,” says AITA President Steve Takacs.

“If you are the person responsible for forklift safety within your business, we invite you to attend our 2018 Forklift Safety Seminar,” says Takacs. “This seminar will ensure you are kept up to date with the latest forklift safety standards, guidelines, training and technology.”

There is no cost to attend the seminar, but places are limited and advance registration is essential using the registration form on the AITA website.

The AITA is also involved in a seminar on “Innovation and collaboration” at the Workplace Health & Safety Show on Thursday 24th May at 10.30am.
