The Forklift/Powered Industrial Truck safety course and the Industrial Counterbalance Lift Trucks module have been updated and just released! Both courses use a powerful combination of full-motion, high-definition video filmed in real world locations, along with audio, text, and colorful graphics.

Forklift equipment are effective tools that can move materials around the workplace quickly and efficiently, but their power and strength can also make them dangerous.

Every year, there are a number of injuries and deaths that are reported due to forklift accidents at the workplace. In addition to the human cost, there is also the damage these accidents cause to materials, facilities, and the forklifts themselves.

With the proper training, a well-maintained forklift and some common sense, employees can help to prevent forklift accidents and help make their facility a safer place.

Forklift/Powered Industrial Truck Safety discusses types of powered industrial trucks, OSHA’s Powered Industrial Truck training requirements, and how to safely operate and properly maintain forklifts.

Forklift Safety: Industrial Counterbalance Lift Trucks provides valuable information about the mechanics and structure of a forklift, and the safe work practices that employees should use when they are working with these vehicles.
