Forklift Safety Training

An average of 100 workers lose their lives and 36,000 workers suffer serious injuries each year in accidents that occur on or around forklifts. Paragon Safety Group offers a Forklift Safety Training course to help operators safely use, load, maintain, and operate forklifts and prevent accidents. These vehicles are powerful pieces of machinery, and OSHA requires each operator to be properly trained.

Available in both English and Spanish, the Forklift Safety Training course teaches workers the hazards associated with forklifts and the specific regulations your company must abide by to achieve and maintain OSHA compliance.

Please note: Training must be done at the employer’s site, using the employer’s equipment
