Studies have shown that more than 25% of all occupational injuries are related to material handling. These injuries not only bring hardships to the employees injured and to their families, but the impact on productivity and profitability can be tremendous. The operation of cranes and slings have been responsible for incidents involving death, serious injury, damage to buildings, damage to stock, and damage to the forklifts themselves.  Since considerable risk is involved in the use of cranes and slings, OSHA has required that all workers using these types of trucks be properly trained in the use and maintenance of such equipment.
