At UniCarriers, Every Day Is Forklift Safety Day

As part of our commitment to the protection of everyone who builds, operates and works around forklifts, we are proudly participating in National Forklift Safety Day on June 11, 2019. This yearly event serves as a reminder to our organization, the industry and lawmakers of how essential safety training and precautions are every second of every day.

At our two factory-owned dealer locations, New England Industrial Truck and Capital Equipment and Handling, we will be offering free operator training and recertification courses. In addition, we’re bringing in vendors to discuss equipment safety, and offering free site safety evaluations.
