Tuesday June 13, 2017, was National Forklift Safety Day and ISRI’s Director of Safety Outreach Tony Smith was invited by the Industrial Truck Association to speak at their event.
Tony spoke to attendees about powered industrial vehicle safety. His presentation covered how mobile equipment is used in the scrap recycling industry. He discussed the highlights of the industry’s mobile equipment train-the-trainer programs and showed how the programs cover blind spot drills with those who walk and work around this equipment. Safety was the topic of the day and The Honorable Glenn Grothman (R-WI) was the featured speaker.
