Forklift Training Workshop
The Association is offering forklift safety certification workshops for both beginner and experienced forklift operators. The training is highly interactive and includes many hands-on activities, discussions and group problem-solving tasks. Participants receive a training manual that describes the do’s and don’ts of safe forklift operation, and the most common types of forklift accidents and how to avoid them. All participants will receive an operator’s ID card stating that they’ve completed the OSHA-required classroom training and a certificate of completion indicating the operator’s driving performance is satisfactory. This training will focus on allowing your staff to perform in-house certification. Registration fee: $50 - First registrant & $35 for each additional registrant. To register or for more information, please contact Will Rogers at: firstname.lastname@example.org
