Forklift Safety: Train the Trainer
9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Presented by: Joe Teeples of We're Into Safety
Without realizing it, many companies fail to fully comply with the increasingly stringent safety laws for forklifts and other power industrial trucks. Are you in compliance or are you breaking the law? Proper forklift safety training will make your company a safer place to work and keep you in compliance with the law.
If you've ever had any doubts about the importance of properly training forklift drivers, the following statistics should settle the question. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, on average 100 workers are killed and 20,000 are injured each year due to forklift mishaps. OSHA requires that all companies provide their forklift and other lift truck operators with proper safety training. Since 1999, when this mandate came into effect, OSHA has made a point of fining companies for willful violations of this rule and all other safety violations pertaining to mechanical lift trucks.This seminar will teach current operators how to conduct safety training for their employees. Upon completion of this course, attendees will receive a Certificate of Completion and a CD with a PowerPoint presentation and a PDF manual they can reproduce to train their own employees on proper forklift safety. All attendees must be familiar with forklift operations.
