Effective today, OSHA has begun a National Emphasis Program on Warehousing and Distribution Center Operations to get a handle on the workplace hazards within these facilities.
Part of the hazards found within these facilities have to do with forklift operation and inspection, which we at Cranes101 can help you with. Make sure your employees are licensed and qualified as forklift operators, and that your forklifts are not only inspected annually, but also before every shift. Our forklift operator safety course can be found online and live. With our live courses, we include our instructors qualifying your employees on the forklifts they use on the job. And your employees can use our Safety Management Portal to do their pre-shift inspections.
Before OSHA comes to inspect your facility, have us come help you be ahead of the curve with a safer working environment.
