EnerSys® Supports 2023 National Forklift Safety Day with Power Solutions Designed to Enhance Operator Protection
READING, PENNSYLVANIA/ JUNE 13, 2023 — EnerSys® (NYSE:ENS), the global leader in stored energy solutions for industrial applications, is honored to once again join the Industrial Truck Association (ITA) in support of National Forklift Safety Day (NFSD), providing customers with highly-sophisticated, virtually maintenance-free motive power solutions engineered to enhance operator protection.
To help reduce exposure to workplace injuries, EnerSys® provides battery options that support converting material handling operations from liquid propane (LP) to electric power – eliminating risk of musculoskeletal injuries from handling, lifting, and changing LP tanks.
“Forklifts are valuable pieces of equipment that support industry and our global supply chain; but powered industrial trucks violations were among OSHA’s ten highest citation areas last year,” said Harold Vanasse, Senior Director of Marketing, Motive Power Global at EnerSys. “And our customer’s safety is top priority here at EnerSys, so we are constantly striving to develop solutions to not only simplify the operator experience, but also take into consideration their safety, health and overall well-being. Like the ITA, we share a similar desire to spread awareness of the importance of forklift safety education, training and the need for innovative solutions to help reduce exposure to potential injury, and we are proud to support their ongoing efforts during National Forklift Safety Day.”
Today marks the ten-year anniversary of NFSD and this historic milestone is being recognized through several events throughout the United States, including a special keynote presentation at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.
ITA established National Forklift Safety Day in 2013 to reflect its mission to raise awareness on best practices in manufacturing and warehouse environments and to emphasize operator training, promote greater pedestrian awareness, and share resources about forklift safety.
