Raymond’s forklift operator training program has helped employers protect their people, equipment, and materials since its inception almost 30 years ago. Studies have shown that effective operator training, such as that provided by the Safety On The Move program, can help improve your profitability and efficiency while improving employee satisfaction.

It can help you reduce safety incidents, equipment downtime and product damage.  It can also help you elevate worker productivity and overall customer satisfaction. Furthermore, the Safety On The Move program can help you comply with the OSHA requirement mandating that all industrial lift truck operators must be trained and certified before being allowed to operate equipment on the job.

What Exactly Does OSHA Require?

Since 1999 all operators of industrial lift trucks have been required to be trained and certified in the use of their equipment before being allowed to operate it on the job. This training must address both the conditions and characteristics unique to their place of work and the specific type of equipment they will be using.

The Safety On The Move program is designed to help you comply with your requirement to train operators. Safety On The Move is a comprehensive,  modular training course that can be presented based on your organization’s specific equipment and work site. It can also be modified to fit the needs of both new and experienced forklift operators.

How Does Training Improve Overall Profitability?

Studies have shown that thorough operator training can improve safety metrics by up to 70 percent. This can help your organization achieve better bottom-line results through:

  • Decreases in accidents and work disruptions
  • Reductions in product damage and maintenance costs
  • Greater customer satisfaction and worker productivity
  • Longer equipment life

What Does Training Include?

This Safety On The Move program includes a trainer’s guide, videos, student workbooks and additoinal support materials.
