During the classroom portion of the training, we cover OSHA/ANSI/ASME training requirements and safety rules. During the practical instruction portion, we cover operating controls and equipment inspection. The course concludes with an evaluation of basic operating skills.
The second program is a Train-the-Trainer course. We designed the training for people who are responsible for instructing or developing forklift safety training at their own facility.
