The Backbone (TM)
A forklift underride accident can have serious consequences, both for the affected employee and their family and for the company in terms of costs and reputation. To prevent such accidents, we strongly recommend implementing “The Backbone,” a protective guard, on all stand-up forklifts and reach trucks used in areas where underrides are possible. Not only will this help ensure the safety of your operators, it can also help protect your business from the high costs and negative impacts of workplace injuries. If you are using stand-up forklifts and reach trucks and have not yet implemented “The Backbone,” we recommend speaking with your safety experts and operators to assess the need for this important safety measure. As always, it is better to be proactive in ensuring the safety of your workplace.
According to the US National Safety Council, the costs of work-related injuries can be as high as $1,220,000 per death and $42,000 per medically consulted injury. These costs not only impact the employer, but also society as a whole.
Avoid is currently consulting with a number of companies that offer amazing products and services that improve productivity and safety in the workplace. Please tell us about your needs and problem areas as we are happy to source solutions for you.
