Forklift Operator Safety

Home Workshops Courses Available Now Forklift Operator Safety

Driving is only part of the job. Safety is key!

This blended course will put you in the driver’s seat

Ask most aeroplane pilots what their most important function is, and they’ll likely say “safety”. This is no less true for forklift work, where you’ll have to operate swiftly with people moving around, worry about hazardous materials, and stack loads securely. Your Forklift Operator Safety Certificate is valid for a three-year period. If your card has expired, you too will need this training session. This course meets or exceeds all Ontario and CSA regulations and standards.

Who Should Attend:

This is a compliant course. Inexperienced forklift drivers, and those with moderate prior experience operating a motorized, counterbalanced forklift.

What You Will Learn:

  • Minimum skill levels for using a motorized counterbalanced forklift in a reasonably challenging work simulation.
  • Practical, hands-on pre-use inspection, safe operating and parking/shut-down procedures. Practice under the helpful eye of the program trainer.

Your knowledge and skill level will be evaluated, and only those able to demonstrate a minimum level of operational competence will receive documentation of successful program completion.

Reach Truck Training may also be included in this training session at no extra charge for corporate clients!
