Forklift Train the Trainer Agenda

OSHA’s Powered Industrial Truck standard was revised in 1998, however, employees are still being killed or severely injured due to poor forklift programs and practices. This course will help to ensure your in-house forklift trainers are up to date and in compliance.

This program will take the guesswork out of what constitutes a “qualified trainer.” Attendees will learn how to effectively train their staff on the key points of safe and compliant forklift operation.
