EnerSys (NYSE:ENS), the global leader in stored energy solutions for industrial applications, will join the Industrial Truck Association (ITA) to support the sixth annual National Forklift Safety Day, to be held on June 11, 2019.

ITA’s National Forklift Safety Day provides a unique platform to educate the industry about the safe use of forklifts and the importance of proper operator training to avoid injury. The ITA works closely with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to facilitate training seminars and develop educational resources to emphasize safe practices in warehouse environments.
