Forklift Operation


Forklifts are essential pieces of equipment in many industrial and warehouse settings, facilitating the movement of heavy goods and materials. Proper operation is crucial not only for efficiency but also for the safety of operators and other workers. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), there are approximately 85 fatal forklift accidents per year in the United States, with 34,900 accidents resulting in serious injury. Proper training can significantly reduce these numbers. This course is designed to provide comprehensive training on the safe and efficient operation of forklifts.
