Forklift and Lift Truck Safety & Operations Training
Our Forklift Training program prepares workers to properly handle and control lift trucks and forklifts in the workplace. Completing forklift training will help you perform adequate pre-operational checks, learn the CSA Standard B335-94, understand the stability triangle, and keep your employees safe. It is important to understand the health risks and hazards associated with forklift operation in order to prevent them from occurring.
