Forklift Theory Training Summary:

Every lift truck operator must be trained in the safe operation and limitations of a lift truck under provincial and federal legislation. Training will teach operators to handle goods within a lift truck's capacity and stability zone without causing incidents. A trained operator can reduce customer delays and indirect costs to your business. To prevent damaged goods, building damage or injuries to the operator or other workers, training is essential.

Our course includes training on numerous lifting devices including Counter Balance lift trucks, Narrow Aisle Reach trucks, Order Pickers, Electric Pallet Jacks, Rough Terrain and Truck Mounted lift trucks (Moffats), as well as Personnel and Burden Carriers.

We provide lift truck operators with the needed theory training, coaching, practical skills evaluation and refresher training.

Hot Zone holds monthly public lift truck training in Cambridge, Ontario. Alternatively, we can provide training on-site for your team. Contact us today to find out more.
