The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 includes a provision that states, “only trained and authorized operators will be permitted to operate a powered industrial truck.” CFE is proud to go above and beyond the standard when it comes to OSHA training. An operator without proper certification can pose a risk to the safety of himself and the workers around him. He’s as dangerous as a driver without a license. Our Operators Training Program not only aims to qualify operators with the required certification, but more importantly, it strives to teach proper and safe operating skills. Training consists of 3 parts: classroom lectures, actual hands-on driving and performance evaluation. Our teachers are not only able to train the operators, but are also certified to train a trainer if that suits your needs. We offer flexible scheduling.
