Why You Need Forklift Training

Shifting loads, tip-overs, and collisions can be prevented with the proper forklift safety training that we provide. An employer has a duty to make their workers competent in using a powered lift truck so avoid fatal circumstances. As per OHSA- Regulations 213/91 for construction projects, a forklift operator must be trained in the specific class of machine they will be operatingWorkers who were poorly trained; where supervision was inadequate; and where both the work and workplace were not organized with safety in mind have resulted in minor to fatal injuries. Unsafe work practices can be identified and avoided with the help of our expertise and guidance. By the end of your training, we will help you to improve powered-lift-truck safety.
