The government announced that targeted inspections of worksites where forklifts and other powered mobile equipment are used will begin Feb. 22. But the Alberta Federation of Labour (AFL) says that although this safety blitz is welcome, more must be done to save lives. The AFL would like to see the province follow Manitoba’s lead and institute a mandatory system for training and certification of forklift operators.
