OSHA and CAL/OSHA require that you have:
• Trained, authorized and certified operators
• Operators must be trained on every piece of equipment they operate (i.e. forklift, reach truck, pallet jack)
• Operators must be trained in the specific environment in which the unit is operated
According to OSHA, 25% of forklift-related accidents are the result of inadequate training and proper OSHA forklift training and best practices is what Southwest ToyotaLift strives for with each trainer and operator we work with. Our staff is ready to educate with Train the Trainer and Operator Safety Training that will fit your warehouse and industry needs. We offer Class II, Class III, and Classes I, IV, and V safety training courses that stay up to date with OSHA standards as well as our cost effective Train-the-Trainer program that teaches in-house trainers to pass on safety training to the rest of the organization.
Our experienced trainers at Southwest ToyotaLift are available to fit your schedule, including onsite, in-house and Saturday training choices.
Southwest ToyotaLift in compliance with OSHA and Senate Bill 198, is offering a operators training program produced by Toyota Material Handling, INC.
