Fork Lift Training

The Ontario Ministry of Labour has made lift trucks a top priority for two reasons; the magnitude of trucks in use throughout the province and number of serious workplace injuries directly and deaths related to the lift trucks. For the Health and Safety of everyone, it is strongly suggested that Operator Training be a staple practice within your organization.  According to data compiled by the Occupational Health and Safety Council of Ontario, between 1996-2008 there were 10,308 forklift-related incidents, an average of 793 incidents per year. A number of factors directly contributed to these injuries, including a lack of preventative maintenance and load capacity examinations. In June of 2008, the ministry of labour launched a Safe at Work Ontario blitz and has increased enforcement to try and combat these safety issues.
