FORKLIFT and LIFT TRUCKS

Accidents with Forklifts and Lift trucks are very preventable when you know how to properly use them, and what to do when involved in a bad situation with them. Individuals working on or around these machines must know how to recognize the hazards associated with them and how they are properly operated.

Our Forklift and Lift Truck course is to provide participants with necessary knowledge required to be able to recognize hazards, perform inspections, and operate this equipment.

Earn your certification at one of our convenient training locations in Southern Ontario, or we can bring the program to your office or group.

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Explain competency requirements
