Program Description

In Ontario, lift truck incidents continue to injure and take the lives of operators and other workers. To stop these injuries and fatalities from occurring, we need to understand why they happen and, more importantly, how to prevent them.

The training in this program is theory-based only. The employer is responsible for:

  • Providing additional training and evaluation on workplace-specific equipment and approved attachments
  • Ensuring that proper maintenance, repair, and inspection procedures are developed and enforced regularly
  • Maintaining continual safety supervision.
