The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires all forklift operates to be properly trained. This training must include a formal training segment, a hands on training segment as well as a hands on evaluation. This training must be administered by a person with knowledge and experience in the operation of forklifts.
Monthly safety meetings are an excellent way to keep safety on the minds of your workforce and management team. Each of these twelve short safety talks provide the basic information needed by your employees to remain safe in the workplace. Unusual or especially hazardous situations should be covered in more detail. Each of these topics may be used as speaker notes, printed as handouts.
