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.

Low Cost Doesn’t Mean Low Performance

Forklifts are an essential part to operation productivity in a warehouse and there are many components when you are considering the purchase of material handling equipment. There are advantages of purchasing a pre-owned forklift that can often make it a better solution than other options depending on your company usage and budget needs. It can reduce your spending cost, presents a wide range of options and offers a larger fleet with longer service.

Purchasing forklifts that are pre-owned will help you save on the price tag where it matters without having to abandon quality. Used forklifts can be a smart investment because the price is significantly lower than the cost of a new machine but low cost doesn’t always represent low performance.
