Prepare yourself and your equipment because Old Man Winter is coming. Don’t let the wintry weather freeze your operations. It is important to winterize your forklifts and other material handling equipment to make sure your fleet is ready to thaw the freeze. Winter is a peak time for productivity for many businesses. So why risk avoidable equipment breakdowns and lost productivity when you can prevent them?

Winter weather can and will wreak havoc on your forklift fleet if precautions are not taken. Winters are harsh on forklifts and operators, but when proper preparation and maintenance is performed your business will profit from unnecessary mechanical failures and lost production.

Celebrate National Forklift Safety Day with our Safety Training Courses

Shoppa’s stays very busy reducing operational costs and increasing productivity for their customers. But on National Forklift Safety Day, it gives Shoppa’s the opportunity to take a step back and highlight the safe use of forklifts and the importance of operator training.

National Forklift Safety Day is an event sponsored by the Industrial Truck Association held once a year. Its intent is to provide the material handling industry the opportunity to educate customers about safe forklift operation.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, from 2011 to 2014, 261 workers were killed in forklift accidents, where the industrial truck was the primary cause.

We want our customers to take precautions for the possible dangers when operating forklifts and other material handling equipment. To facilitate this, we offer professional operator training courses.

That does not even factor in the loss of productivity from any equipment breakdown downtime.
