Toolbox Talk: Slab Handling with a Forklift

Each year in the United States, nearly 100 workers are killed and another 20,000 are seriously injured in forklift-related incidents. Forklift overturns are the leading cause of fatalities involving forklifts; they represent about 25% of all forklift-related deaths. The key objective of this safety download packet is to describe the potential dangers encountered when moving stone slabs with forklifts and "best practices" to void an accident. This safety packet is designed to facilitate face-to-face safety meetings, as well as provide additional information necessary to create an ongoing culture of safety training

Two Toolbox Talks (safety meeting outlines) are provided:
  1. One toolbox talk outline will address a recent accident that occurred in the stone industry. Because this accident was investigated by OSHA, all can learn from the recommendations that were made and how to avoid a similar occurrence at your facility.
  2. A second toolbox talk outline will be provided to address Slab Handling with a Forklift. This outline will not be focused on a recent accident - rather it will address additional "best practices" for that topic.

Both talks are presented as meeting agendas including overview, prevention recommendations and recap/review notes.

Additionally, this download will include:

Safety Checklist: This checklist includes recommended tasks that should be incorporated into every stone company 's safety program. The list corresponds directly to the topics addressed in the two toolbox talks offered that month. Sign-in Sheet: A generic sign-in to document those that attended each safety meeting. Documentation of attendance is critical and this sign-in sheet serves as an excellent tool for record retention.

Product of the Month: Information about a safety-related "Product of the Month" feature.
