Why Forklift Training Is Important

Operator training is essential in promoting a safe work environment. Not only is this training important to the safety of employees, but it’s also required. OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Act) regulations require specialized training and regular re-training for forklift operators. OSHA also requires remedial training for operators involved in accidents or near-accidents. Properly trained lift truck operators and pedestrians can help reduce lift truck downtime, limit lost-time injuries, improve driver efficiency and minimize product damage and accidents.

Did you know that OSHA requires Fork Lift Operators to be recertified every three years? Protect your employees, your equipment and your profits. Burns has certified trainers who can provide your employees with a complete fork lift training and certification program, on your company site or at our Warrendale, PA and Macedonia, OH locations.

Lift Truck & Aerial Lift Operator Training

Whatever your operators run, they need to be trained on that equipment and the importance of safety in the workplace. There’s a good reason it’s required by law: according to OSHA, 40 percent of new accidents occur with operators mishandling equipment. Our professional trainers provide your employees with the latest OSHA regulations, allowing your employees to be confident and stay compliant.

What to Expect

Our operator training courses include a combination of formal instruction and practical training. An evaluation to determine the effectiveness of the training is completed to ensure your operators have the knowledge and skills to operate their equipment safely.

Protect Your Equipment & Environment

Safety is freedom from physical injury and property damage. Creating a safe materials handling environment requires a team effort from all personnel to ensure recommended forklift maintenance guidelines are followed. Pedestrians should understand operating characteristics of forklift trucks when working in their proximity and should understand and follow the rules that are established for their specific environment by their employers.
