HOUSTON (June 6, 2023) – Mitsubishi Logisnext Americas group (Logisnext), a leading North American provider and manufacturer of material handling and innovative automation and fleet solutions, knows that the safety of forklift operators is a top priority. For the 10th anniversary of National Forklift Safety Day, Logisnext and its family of brands – Cat® lift trucks, Mitsubishi forklift trucks, Jungheinrich®, UniCarriers® Forklifts and Rocla AGV Solutions – are teaming up with the industry to advocate and champion forklift safety in the workplace.
The company is supporting National Forklift Safety Day through a variety of safety-focused activities, including:
• Attendance at the 10th annual Industrial Truck Association (ITA) National Forklift Safety Day event in Washington D.C. that will include presentations from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), industrial safety and forklift industry experts.
• On June 13, Logisnext employees across the company’s three campuses in Houston, Texas; Marengo, IL and Grand Rapids, MI, will celebrate the milestone occasion as part of the company’s ongoing commitment to focus on safety best practices.
• To further raise awareness of the importance of forklift safety in the workplace, a National Forklift Safety Day toolkit was made available to the Logisnext dealer network to help promote the “Safety First” campaign to employees and customers during the month of June.
“National Forklift Safety Day brings an important focus to safety in our industry – an area that we concentrate on all year long as a part of our 100% safety initiative,” said Jay Gusler, executive vice president, operations of Mitsubishi Logisnext Americas. “In recognition of this important national day focused on safety, we are committed to increasing awareness of forklift safety with our employees, dealers and customers.”
Logisnext’s “Safety First” initiative reinforces the importance of properly trained forklift operators and proper forklift certification.
