Forklifts allow one employee to do the work of several by moving large quantities of materials and handling awkward loads. With the benefits of improved materials handling, the potential for serious injury and death also increases. The sheer mass of a forklift can be equivalent to a full-size sedan and, although speeds are relatively low, that mass makes the potential for accidents a very serious issue in the workplace.
Have you ever driven to work and not remembered a thing about how you got there? Or maybe walked to the cafeteria to grab a cup of coffee and "zoned out" the entire way?
You sit at your desk, stare at your computer, make phone calls, walk to the printer, check on fellow employees and so on. The last thing you're probably thinking about is the air that you breathe in. In many cases, indoor air quality (IAQ) can truly be the silent killer.
Many offices have poor IAQ. Proper ventilation is something of the utmost importance so why not look into it at your place of work?
