Lift Trucks and mobile equipment accidents can be prevented and are unacceptable. Their widespread use requires that individuals working on and around forklifts recognize hazards associated with the equipment and the environment in which they are operated. Our Safe Operation of a Lift Truck program is designed in accordance with CSA B335-04 Safety Standard for Lift Trucks. Silecio will train you on the proper use.
