J.J. Keller & Associates' New Ultimate HPC: Forklifts training program teaches important hazard perception skills, then uses interactive learning to show how they can be applied in everyday workplace settings. The intense, fast-paced program encourages forklift operators to be diligent at all times. Unique camera angles show hazardous situations from both operator and bystander perspectives. The DVD-based program features three segments, each representing an escalating level of perception difficulty: basic, intermediate and advanced. Trainees learn basic hazard perception skills, then build on those skills to advance through the higher levels.
New Pig recently introduced the PIG® Quick Deploy Leak Diverter Kit for quick response to roof and pipe leaks before they damage inventory, machinery, or create slip hazards.

Pinched corners help funnel liquid toward the center of the Diverter for better drainage, and the included PVC drain hose channels captured liquid to a collection container, drain, or other containment device.
