Forklift Safety and Operator Training


This class will teach students how to safely operate a forklift within the parameters of an industrial / manufacturing site.   

Instruction will cover calculating capacity loads, pre-operational checks, care and maintenance of the truck, and safe propane cylinder changing.  The course is 9 hours long and is typically scheduled over 2 days, with the safety class of approximately 6 hours taking place the first day and then hands on operation of the forklift on the second day.  

This course can also be customized to fit a specific company’s equipment, and can be held offsite when requested.
