Madison Heights, MI (PRWEB) September 19, 2005
OSHA Federal Regulation CFR1910.178 states that "Only trained and authorized operators shall be permitted to operate a powered industrial truck."
Indeed, OSHA has required that all drivers be trained and have a permit to operate a Powered Industrial Truck (forklift), and can impose a $7,000 fine for each operator in violation! In other words, if you have forklift operators with no formal training, you are taking a huge liability risk.
The Forklift Operator Training Video course, available from Forklifttrainer.com, presents OSHA compliant material for the training of new forklift operators and periodic review for the re-certification of experienced drivers. This program, available in both DVD and VHS (NTSC), includes testing and certificates of completion, documenting the formal measures that your organization has taken to ensure safe and effective lift truck operation that is in compliance with OSHA guidelines.
Reckless and improper lift truck operation can often result in accidents, product damage, and other financial losses which can be severe, if not crippling to an organization. This training and certification course, based upon a thorough and instructive 55 minute video presentation, can make a significant difference in reducing damage, costs, and crushing liabilities.
