At CMI, we understand the critical intersection of forklift operations and pedestrian safety in the workplace. Our mission is to empower organizations with the knowledge and skills to foster a safer working environment.


The Challenge:

Forklifts are indispensable in various industries, but their operation poses significant risks, particularly when pedestrians are involved. Without proper safety measures, these encounters can lead to severe accidents and injuries.

  • Each year 75 to 100 workers are killed in forklift accidents, with an average of 87 deaths per year.
  • Forklift accidents that result in serious injury total 34,900 annually.
  • OSHA’s Powered Industrial Truck Standard is consistently in the top 5 most cited standards.

If companies implemented more stringent training and inspection policies, OSHA estimates that about 70% of forklift accidents in the US could be prevented.
