Online Safety Training Course for Forklift Operators in the Construction Industry

Powered industrial trucks, commonly called forklifts or lift trucks, are used in a wide variety of workplaces. From internal combustion engine trucks, to electric motor hand trucks to rough terrain forklift trucks, there are forklift trucks for just about every need. While forklifts are primarily used to load and unload materials, they are also used for other reasons such as raising and lowering large objects, items on pallets, and items in boxes, crates and other containers.

There are many possible hazards which can occur when operating a forklift. Forklift operators and other employees working around forklift operations both face risk of hazards such as collisions, falls, tip-overs, and struck-by conditions. Operating a forklift safely requires preparation, anticipation and careful attention to maintain control of the vehicle at all times.

This online training program will highlight different areas of forklift operations.
