Forklift incidents can cause significant injuries and deaths as well as extensive property damage. Legislation states that Powered Mobile Equipment (PME) operators require extensive training that includes duties, operation, terminology, inspection and maintenance among others. Legislation also requires training (classroom and practical) before an operator is considered competent.
This course will enable your facility to be self-sufficient in your training needs to develop competent forklift operators.
