The program provides busy managers, foremen and supervisors a convenient way to be in the OSHA standards for safety compliance.
This on-line, self-paced program teaches on-site trainers in all applicable OSHA requirements and provides critical OSHA updates in workplace rules. It even includes free compliance tools.
Once trainers are certified, they can then create on-site training of forklift operators, saving them from expensive off-site programs that cost the business lost work, overtime hours and thousands of dollars.
“Many businesses believe that government regulations require them to purchase expensive, second-party training programs for their workforce. This can be prohibitively expensive and very inefficient,” says Tom Wilkerson, founder of CertifyMe.net. “We offer training program tools to seasoned forklift operators that ‘trains the trainer’ how to instruct new operators. The package includes everything needed, including certificates and certification wallet cards showing compliance with OSHA standards. In many cases, this creates an even safer workplace environment because the trainers are actually well acquainted with the specific equipment and unique workplace in which the operators will be functioning. Each piece of equipment has its own nuances and every workplace has its own potential hazards. We recognize it is safest, most efficient, and most cost effective to utilize a businesses existing employee expertise to benefit the workplace.”
