This program provides all the training necessary to have your drivers qualified as competent, safe and efficient lift truck operators. Training is presented in an easy to understand format using visual, written and verbal instruction. According to Ontario’s Health & Safety (OH&S) Act employers, supervisors and workers must be aware of hazards to workers in the workplace. These hazards often cause injury to personnel, damage to equipment and product as well as reduce the efficiency of the operation. Our Lift Truck Operator Training enables operators to recognize the hazards associated with lift truck operation, follow recognized safe practices and take steps to control these hazards.
We offer a two-part program consisting of a theory segment and a practical evaluation including fuelling or charging of lift truck.
