Why Should You Attend:

If you are using any type of mechanized equipment for materials handling or other purposes, such as on a job site, in a factory or warehouse, or in any commercial activity, there is a highly codified OSHA requirement for Operator Safety Training.

Our Presenter for this webinar has authored a handbook on Forklift Safety and taught numerous Operator Training classes, from shipyards, mills, factories and construction sites.

We will discuss the most common FAILURES of training programs, and Best Practices to ensure your Operators receive and retain the right safety information.

OSHA calculates there is a FATALITY involving a PIT/forklift every 4 days in the US, approximately 100 every year.

And, there are numerous serious injuries EVERY DAY involving PIT/forklifts. Most if not all of these incidents are classified as PREVENTABLE, and are often directly attributable to Operator ERROR; including improper or insufficient training on a specific type of materials handling machine.

In this webinar we will discuss critical Operator behaviors and how Safety Trainers can reinforce these behaviors to achieve a safe and productive workplace, using basic principles of adult learning and behavior reinforcement.

Also, we will examine some of the technological advancements occurring in the fork lift industry that add great benefit to overall safety performance.

Practical, real-life and hands-on Operator Safety Training tips and methods are included in this Webinar.

If you are using any type of mechanized mobile materials handling machinery, you or some other responsible person should attend this Webinar, if only to confirm you are capturing all the hot buttons and key learning requirements for keeping your operators safe and productive.
