Overview

Due to lack of training and the common, casual use of forklifts over 3,000 powered industrial truck violations and 95,000 injuries happen every year. Forklift injuries cost companies roughly $100 million annually. This course discusses how forklift operators can work safely in the workplace, as well as follow OSHA safety standards. Included in this training is a story from warehouse workers about how forklift safety was compromised at a normal day at work. Casey Randall and Hal Phillips tell their story, showing how a routine task can turn into a near-fatal and life-altering incident. Safety training could have prevented Casey from nearly being crushed by a forklift.

Even pedestrians and bystanders are affected by forklift misuse. Forklift accidents result in 100 pedestrian deaths and 20,000 pedestrian injuries a year. While pedestrians do have to watch out for themselves, forklift drivers are also responsible for slowing down and sounding the horn to ensure bystander safety.

By using this online training course, you can ensure your forklift drivers will learn how to operate forklifts safely by being aware of the situation and others around them, while preventing company expenses due to accidents.
