On June 12, members of the Industrial Truck Association (ITA) will take part in the fifth annual National Forklift Safety Day in Washington, D.C., and around the country. This event provides an opportunity for the industry to educate customers and government officials about the safe use of forklifts and the importance of proper operator training.

Included in this section are: an interview with ITA's new chairman, Scott Johnson; a feature story on how forklift manufacturers ensure proper operator training in their own facilities; and a roundup of some new forklift safety-related products.
