Forklift Operator Training
Do you have new employees that need forklift certification and operator training? Or is it time for your experienced forklift operators to have a refresher training? We offer a variety of forklift safety training classes, including courses for your in-house trainers. Our trainers are Toyota Factory Trained and Certified.
To combat accidents and deaths in the work environment, OSHA mandates training and procedures for safety. All industrial-powered truck operators must be certified to operate the equipment legally. Re-certification is required every three years. It is essential to check to see if your current operators are still in compliance. We provide videos, manuals, exams, and other training and safety materials. For your convenience, we can offer training at your facility, or your employees can come to one of our locations.
