Who Should Attend: Teaches the information every employee needs to know in order to protect their health and safety when operating or working around a lift truck.
Please note: This course requires students to perform a practical component which allows the instructor to observe and pass the information on to the employer for feedback. If your organization does not have a lift truck available for use, one will need to be obtained. Should McLeod Safety make the arrangements to obtain a lift truck for training, the costs associated with that will be charged to the client organization.
As McLeod Safety does not own the equipment, this training is limited to organizations who wish to have us provide the training on-demand and in the location of their choosing.
Organizations may choose only to have the in-class, or theory, portion of the training conducted at their discretion. Doing so will adjust the course length to 4 hours; for pricing, please contact us.
Course length: 8 hours
