• Unless you want a ‘forklift foot’, follow these safety tips Honey Boo Boo!

    As a mindless TV junkie, I was both intrigued AND horrified when the TLC hit show “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” ran promos promising  to reveal the pint size pageant queen mom’s “forklift foot”.

    First, what is “forklift foot”? Well….

    In the episode they reveal that, “Mama” aka Honey Boo Boo’s mother, was involved in a forklift accident several years ago in which her foot was ran over, leaving it deformed.  So, today, I thought I’d provide a few safety tips so you never have to experience the horror of “forklift foot” for yourself…

    Foot care is important!

    Your feet are used to perform a variety of work-related tasks, such as climbing ladders and operating  machinery, yet some people neglect their feet by being careless on the job. For example, they jump off of forklift or other moving equipment, don’t wear the proper footwear, or don’t watch where they walk.

    As a result, feet or ankles may wind up with sprains, fractures, and other serious injuries that can keep a person off the job and result in lost income for days or even weeks or months. Amputation may occur if a loose pants leg or shoelace gets caught in moving parts or if your feet are crushed by machinery.

    Knowing how to avoid injuring your feet will help prevent serious incidents that can linger with you the rest of your life.
