Rough Terrain Fork Lift Safety [ back to top ]
1-2 Day Program
Meeting and Surpassing all OSHA & ASME requirements

ASME B56.6-1994 states, "The use of powered and non-powered industrial trucks is subject to certain hazards that cannot be completely eliminated by mechanical means, but the risks can be minimized by the exercise of intelligence, care, and common sense. It is therefore essential to have competent and careful operators, physically and mentally fit, and thoroughly trained in the safe operation of the equipment and handling of the loads." You can be confident of your employees' abilities upon their completion of this course.

Industrial Lift Trucks [ back to top ]
1-2 Day Program

Powered industrial lift trucks, also more commonly known as fork trucks, are the most popular type of material-handling machinery in use today. It is a common perception that due to design and operating characteristics of this type of machine, anyone is able to operate it with little or no training. Accident statistics prove this to be a misconception. The trainee and/or experienced operator will benefit from this program.
