Forklift Operator Training

Why Forklift Operator Training?

Forklifts are some of the most powerful, versatile, and useful tools within material handling. But only if your teams know how to use this equipment correctly:

  • In the right hands, forklifts can dramatically boost throughput, allowing your shipping and delivery teams to move more inventory, increase their productivity, and generate larger profits.
  • In the wrong hands, however, forklifts can be incredibly dangerous – posing serious safety risks to everyone in your facility. Improper usage can also increase the chances of litigation, OSHA violations, and forfeit certifications.

This is why we’ve partnered with material handling veteran and professional instructor, Darryl C. Kielich, to offer premium forklift operator training.

Among his many accomplishments, Darryl:

  • Has over 40 years of industry experience in the material handling Industry.
  • Is recognized for forklift safety in all 50 States.
  • Is an expert in fatality and injury investigations. In fact, his testimony has been used to help settle court cases.
