It just frustrating to me that any deaths should result in forklift operations. Nearly 100 percent of the time it is absolutely preventable. A great source to get informed to help in prevention is

You guys are ridiculous. The death was not caused by a forklift...all receiving team members and managers are trained and certified. I worked there, if anything happened you were no longer allowed to operate the forklift or Joe. The banding on the landscape timbers is what broke, causing the timbers to fall. OSHA determined this to be a freak accident. Get over yourselves, grow up, and quit degrading and judging when you don't have a clue.

Do all the research you want. OSHA does nothing but takes money from business! If they cant get money they force you out of bussiness!!!

Every job i've ever worked has issued me a Power Equipment License. On this licences there are classes of equipment for example: A,B,C,D,E,F. A is just for operation a forklift that isn't typically powered w/diesel fuel. Anyways they do not give out certification just because someone is 18 years of age and has a valid drivers licence. Oh, also all the jobs i've worked put me through training obstacle courses. You can be terminated for operating equipment without the licence.
Menards issues a licence to employee's who have completed certification and other companie certifications.

What in the hell is wrong with you liberal brain dead drones???
Explain Romney's hate for he middle and lower classes. And dont just regurgitate some BS the hate breeding liberal media or country dividing Obama administration shoved down your throat!
Do you hate filled idiots do any research? Have you sought out facts on anything? Have you takin two minutes and considered the fact your being played for the mindless fool our govenment needs you to be?
Let me make it clear, I'm no Romney fan. I'm certainly not a right wing nut.
Right or left, if your so God damn stupid to believe everything you hear in this day and age with out getting the facts for yourself you shouldn't have the right to open your mouth!

OSHA keeps us safe in the fast food industry. Romney wants to serve Israeli interests, not American interests while hurting our middle class so he can ship more money to vicious, aggressive Israel.

I read the Washington Post. I am amazed you don't know of Ryan and Romney's selling out American interests to israeli donors. I want America's interest to be put first and the middle and lower classes protected!
