Why You Should Never Drive a Forklift with the Mast Raised

You should never drive a forklift with the mast raised. There are several reasons for this. One of the reasons is that you might accidentally impale something simply because you can’t look up and drive at the same time which means your gaze is straight ahead instead of up where the forks are.

Another Wild Air New Zealand Safety Video

Air New Zealand seems to be having a lot of fun with their flight safety videos. Back in July 2006 we posted a link to their “Naked Truth” safety video in which everyone was nude and painted (though it is tastefully done and no actual nudity is visible). Then, in October 2014 they came out with their Hobbit themed video that made use of our middle earth friends to encourage in flight safety.

Apparently they got bored again because they’re back with a new Men in Black themed safety video. Check it out by clicking on the image below:
