Forklift Training Programs
Companies that have forklifts on-site must set up a machine specific program designed to train employees on proper operating procedures. This program must include a classroom training session, a written exam, and a driving practical. Employees who do not complete this training should under no circumstances be permitted to operate a forklift. ERS will ensure that the required training regimen is completed with company employees who use or could potentially use a forklift.
ERS will provide your company with the following:
- Employee training
- Driver evaluations
- Equipment inspections
All forklift operators at a company must be in compliance with the new OSHA safety training regulation 29 CFR 1910.178. If not, the company may be subject to expensive fines and possible denial of insurance coverage for forklift accidents.
