Both drivers and pedestrians benefit from safety training

    Operator training is essential in promoting a safe work environment. Not only is operator training important to the safety of employees, it’s required. OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Act) regulations require specialized training and regular re-training for forklift operators, and remedial training for operators involved in accidents or near-accidents.

    Properly trained lift truck operators and pedestrians can help:

    • Reduce lift truck downtime
    • Limit lost-time injuries
    • Improve driver efficiency
    • Minimize product damage and accidents
    • Improve the company's bottom line

    Hyster Company's award-winning BEST-IN-CLASS operator training program puts all the information you need in an easy-to-use package. The comprehensive 2-DVD program – available in both English and Spanish versions - covers all five lift truck product classes and includes everything needed to conduct the classroom component of an OSHA-compliant operator training session.

    Contact your local Hyster® dealer for more information on professional operator training instruction.
