Lift Truck Operator Safety Training

Thursday, October 19, 2017
9:00am – 11:00am

Storrs Campus
EHS 118

The OSHA standard identifies specific training and skill evaluation procedures that must be followed when employees operate powered industrial trucks. The first two hours of the this formal classroom training provides technical information and outlines proper work practices necessary for the safe use of Powered industrial trucks, (e.g., forklifts, and power pallet jacks) and is required for all operators. The last hour of the course is specifically for managers, supervisors or lead persons, who oversee in-house practical training and perform on-the-job evaluations for the drivers at their facility. This portion provides training on the University's program requirements, as well as the required documentation necessary to maintain regulatory compliance and provide for the safe use of powered industrial trucks at your facility.
