Sturtevant, WI -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/21/2016 -- Topper Industrial, leader in the material handling equipment industry, described in the recent company blog why manufacturers are going fork truck free in 2016. Calculating bottom-line FTF (fork truck free) benefits can be traced to several areas from savings on fork truck maintenance, warehousing, and economically more efficient material handling. The single largest cost for manufacturers is labor. FTF initiative reduces operational costs of running fork trucks producing a short four to six month payback or return-on-investment (ROI) schedule.
Forklifts are heavy and dangerous machines that can cause catastrophic damage to property and people when not operated in a safe manner. The Chicago forklift accident attorneys of Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers have noticed that poorly educated or trained operators are a common denominator in many accidents and that education and safety training can greatly reduce the risk of an accident. Loading docks and warehouses are busy places and there are many hazards and distractions that can quickly cause things to go bad if a driver is not aware of his or her surroundings, or acts in an irresponsible or reckless manner.
