WorkSafeBC have a handy checklist available for employers that highlights some of the key issues for forklift safety in the workplace. We encourage our clients to take a look. https://www.worksafebc.com/en/resources/health-safety/information-sheets/employer-responsibilities-lift-truck-safety?lang=en
Why do we need recertification training to drive a forklift? Humans forget and become complacent. That’s why refresher training for forklift operators is a must. We are now booking our Spring schedule for on-site training from Nanaimo to Campbell River.
Even experienced operators need refresher training. A three point mount or dismount is a good start, but what should the next step be for this operator once he is seated? Book your Spring 2022 recertification training now – on site Nanaimo to Campbell River.
Plan ahead for winter forklift operation – take into account that rain, snow and wind affect traction, load stability and visibility. Take care!
Effective 1 September look out for the revised Section 16 Mobile Equipment regs from WorkSafeBC. We are now booking September forklift operator training for companies in the Comox Valley.
Martin’s Forklift is happy to be open again to schedule forklift training for your operators at your worksite. Book now for July/August/September from Nanaimo to Campbell River.
With vaccines rolling out soon, we do hope to be able to offer our on site forklift training programs for Comox Valley employers by June. We will keep you posted.
Sorry, we are not offering forklift training right now due to the pandemic. But we still want you all to stay safe while operating your forklift. So this reminder is aimed at operators and pedestrians to look out for each other.
We wish all our Vancouver Island customers a safe and healthy holiday season and look forward to seeing you all again in 2021.
Sorry to say we have suspended our forklift training again in light of the latest covid numbers in BC. Stay safe everyone, and don’t hesitate to contact us if you need advice on forklift safety in your workplace.
