Forklifts can be very useful pieces of equipment. Maintenance and facilities staff members are the most likely employees to operate a forklift. As helpful as a forklift can be, using one is not without hazards and tens of thousands of accidents occur each year. Many of these accidents could have been avoided if safe forklift driving and operating practices would have been used. This Forklift Safety course provides staff members with an overview of important safety procedures to be used when operating a forklift. This course is not intended to replace hands-on Forklift training.
