This website documents Forklift Accidents, Prosecutions and Fines in the UK.
The website manager Tony Sellick notes “The really good news is that fatal accidents involving forklift trucks in the United Kingdom have decreased over time…….(from) the 30 annual deaths that were reported annually when I started in the forklift industry in 1970.”
The opening page highlights 19 accidents in 2017 and in the navigation index you can find results year by year back to 2011.
Again reinforcing ….You don’t walk away from a fork lift accident.
