Team Safesite


Last Updated: April 22, 2020

Forklift training management is challenging. Because each operator must demonstrate their knowledge before they start work (and at least once every three years), you must ensure that trainers are effective, workers are competent, and training is scheduled so that work continues seamlessly. 

The neverending cycle can make you feel like you’re always playing catchup. This guide will help you focus in on the true north — the most important things — when it comes to your sit-down counterbalance and stand-up forklift training program.
