FORKLIFT SAFETY TRAINING
This Forklift Safety Training course will teach you everything you need to know in order to operate a forklift in a safe and effective manner. The program is modeled after the federal standard for powered industrial trucks created by the US Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA). In order to satisfy all of the requirements of the OSHA standard, you must complete an in-person evaluation of your practical forklift skills and knowledge after completing this online course. This may be done by your employer, or anyone who has the knowledge and experience to train and evaluate forklift operators.
