Whilst you are looking for new electric forktrucks in and around Preston you might like to be aware that a lift truck driver working at a sawmill was fined £1,750 after an incident in which he was driving a lift truck with a stack of 12 modular sheds. The sheds obscured the drivers vision and as a result he hit a fellow employee with the load causing a fractured pelvis, cuts and bruises. It is important that individuals are aware that they, as well as their employer, have duties under the law to take reasonable care of the health and safety of others who may be affected by their acts or omissions at work. In this case the employer had employed an in-house lift truck trainer and the driver had received regular refresher training and re-testing and as a result it was the employee not the employer that was fined for this incident.
