Lift Truck Training
Driver Evaluation Review


The lift truck training evaluation driver safety review will involve the following: All lift truck drivers completing the "driver evaluation" must have successfully completed "concepts of safe & efficient driving" training. Each driver of an industrial lift truck will be tested in the safe and efficient use of your equipment. Lift truck training whenever possible will be done during production.

This will allow us to do the trainees's lift truck training evaluation under the conditions the drivers will be required to operate their industrial lift truck./ reach truck under. Upon successful completion of the lift truck driver operator training program, participants will be "Certified" as Industrial forklift drivers. Other lifting devices we can get your employees trained in includes pallet truck training, aerial lift training and overhead cranes. Remember, besides forklift training we offer fall arrest training, lockout tagout, manlift training and many more industrial safety courses.
