  1. Are there really a million forklifts in operation right now? It makes sense when I think about it, but it's still surprising to hear. In any case, it's a good idea to avoid accidents, especially with that many people involved. Slowing down and having training would probably go a long way in preventing accidents.

  2. I really liked your advice to drive the forklift slowly. It seems that some people think that the speed is already so slow that there is no way that they can get in an accident. Much on the contrary, you can get seriously injured on a forklift. Often, this is due to carelessness or recklessness. The last thing that you want to do is get hurt on a forklift. Be safe and take your time.
