Forklifts are the backbone of many warehouses, manufacturing plants, and other workplaces. Anyone operating a forklift needs to know how to properly use this equipment, recognize unsafe conditions and prevent accidents. The comprehensive Forklift Operator Safety Training provided by BULLIVANT Health + Safety can make your workplace safer and more efficient.
Forklift Safety Training
BULLIVANT Health + Safety offers monthly Forklift Operator Safety Training classes that focus on safe operational techniques. The forklift operator safety consists of the classroom theory portion and also includes a competency evaluation to prove that the operator is competent to operate the device.
Forklift safety training can help you meet your safety training requirements under the OHSA. We can train large groups, potentially your whole staff, at our training facility in Stoney Creek. However, if you’d prefer we offer training courses on your facility in a group environment which is the most cost and time effective method for you.
