Did you know that in the past few years between 55 and 80 workers die every year due to forklift incidents?

OSHA requires that all forklift trainers be knowledgeable about the OSHA requirements of 1910.178 (The Powered Industrial Truck Standard).

The Center for Rural Development, in partnership with The Safety Firm LLC, an OSHA-certified safety and health training company, is presenting a Forklift Safety: Train the Trainer Workshop on Thursday, June 24, from 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. in Somerset. This is an in-person training and seating is limited.

The workshop, taught by an experienced OSHA authorized instructor, will clear myths and talk about the actual regulations for training and operating a forklift safely. We will look at new technology, share best practices, and participants will walk away with the tools they need to train their forklift operators.

All participants will receive a student manual, a certificate of completion, and a USB containing all the materials with rights to use in-house and make the training specific to their location.
