Safety in the workplace should always be a priority for Forklift Operators and Warehouse Managers.

However, as winter sets in and we face harsher and wetter operating conditions, materials handling professionals may experience additional safety challenges that must be addressed.

Firstly, consider how operating equipment is being protected. How can you be sure your forklifts will survive winter’s effects? What do you do to enable your forklifts protection from the harsher, cold weather conditions?
