Safety Services Group’s forklift training is interactive and engaging. With both classroom and hands-on practical training, our classes teach how to conduct a proper forklift inspection and provide your company with all the documentation needed to ensure ongoing compliance with inspections and maintenance.
Each practical training course ensures the employee is competent in handling any situation they may face in the workplace. The training program is specific to the exact make and model of your company’s forklift.
Why Your Company Needs Forklift Training
OSHA regulations require forklift operators to be trained once every three years.
Inadequate training can result in missed deadlines, property damage, and injuries. A NIOSH (National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health) report shows that approximately every three days, someone in the United States is killed in a forklift-related accident. Each year, an additional 94,750 injuries related to forklift accidents are reported. The costs incurred due to forklift accidents are estimated to be above $100 million. Noncompliance surrounding forklift operation and maintenance is the 6th most cited violation by OSHA last year.
Don’t be a statistic. Be prepared.
