Forklift Safety Training

When the job calls for forklift operators, forklift safety training delivers the instruction your team needs to do it safely. Your employees will learn general safety, pre-operation inspections, load handling, turning radius, center of gravity, the stability triangle, refueling and recharging, and forklift maintenance.
