With the summer now upon us, there will be kids in the warehouse taking care of all those jobs that no one wants to do. While it’s great to have the help, make sure you stay safe, and keep your young, part-time workers safe also. Did you know that under federal law it’s illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to drive a forklift, or anyone over the age of 18 to drive a forklift without the proper certification?
Don’t risk hefty fines by allowing untrained or underage summer workers to operate your forklift. You might think that no one will know. But anyone can report activity to OSHA and all of a sudden someone shows up for an inspection.
