UniCarriers Is Committed to Forklift Safety Year-Round
UniCarriers Americas (UCA) is proudly participating in the sixth National Forklift Safety Day on June 11, 2019. This event has been growing each year, and that's a tribute to the commitment and efforts of the Industrial Truck Association (ITA) and its members.
On National Forklift Safety Day, UCA executives will be meeting with fellow members of the ITA in Washington, D.C., to continue to create better awareness of safe forklift practices.
At all levels, managers and workers will share ideas and insights into how to make both equipment and the workplace safer, and educational activities will be conducted in each UCA facility.
"Safety is woven into the very fabric of our organization and is something we practice every minute of every day," says James J. Radous III, President and CEO of UniCarriers Americas and former National Forklift Safety Day Chairman. "National Forklift Safety Day is an opportunity for us to reinforce this essential message with our employees, our dealers, and our customers."
All across North America, UCA dealers are reaching out to customers and communicating the importance of proper machine maintenance and operator training.
Two of UCA's factory-owned dealer locations, New England Industrial Truck and Capital Equipment and Handling, will hold free operator training and recertification courses to encourage and advance forklift safety. In addition, vendors are being brought in to discuss equipment safety and offer free site-safety evaluations.
UCA is a leader in advancing forklift safety and remains focused on providing customers with the tools they need to avoid injuries in the workplace. The top priority is creating a safe environment for those who work on and around forklifts.
National Forklift Safety Day puts a much-needed spotlight on the material handling industry and helps bring UCA closer to its ultimate goal of eliminating all forklift accidents.
