Just completed another successful three-day novice course for GE Oil & Gas. Jamie passed with flying colours .
Forty-three people - including two teenagers - are likely to be badly injured by UK fork lift trucks in the next seven days, according to new findings released by the Fork Lift Truck Association (FLTA).
The shocking figures, based upon HSE workplace accident statistics since 2001, also show that forklift trucks injure almost as many people at work as vans, cars and HGVs combined.
Statistically, alongside two victims under the age of 19, an average week's injury toll of 43 would include the following types of people:
11 serious, long-term injuries, such as amputations
5 victims at or approaching retirement age (55+)
3 injuries to female workers
20 pedestrians struck by a moving truck
Someone in the UK is killed by a fork lift truck on average every six weeks. This rate doubles in September as companies take on additional staff to cope with pre-Christmas stock movements
