Course Description:

Most powered industrial truck accidents are the result of inadequate operator training. OSHA has established strict training requirements for all forklift operators. This course provides the participant with an instructor reference manual, power point training slides, and an operator awareness manual with written and performance tests, a training video that explains how to conduct a thorough powered industrial truck training program.
