Why do we recommend operator training?

Forklift Operator Safety Training

Did you know CFE Equipment offers on-site forklift operator training? Do you know why it is important?

Forklift tipping over

The benefits of providing operator training go beyond the obvious mandatory requirement for OSHA. Benefits like improved employee attitude, increased productivity, decreased product damage, lower maintenance costs, and increased operator safety are a few reasons why all companies should invest in their operators.

Each year over 100 workers die in accidents involving powered industrial lift devices. 9 out of every 10 accidents can be attributed to operator error due to inadequate training and/or inadequate enforcement of Company safe work procedures. Most operators do not think about, and have no concept of the damage a forklift could cause.

If you wish to learn more about what you can do to make your company compliant, please contact CFE Equipment. You can also learn more at OSHA’s website here.

  1. I appreciate the information on forklift training. I agree that having the proper training of the use of forklifts can not only benefits you in safety but it can also benefit you in the sense that you will get increased productivity due to the knowledge of how to use the machine. My brother is debating on getting retrained in the use of a forklift, I will be sure to share this information with him.
