FORKLIFTS: ADVANCED HAZARD AWARENESS ONLINE COURSE
Ultimate Hazard Perception Challenge: Forklifts – Advanced Safety Awareness is the third in a series of three courses (basic, intermediate, and advanced). Trainees are presented scenarios in which they must quickly recognize hazards and make the best choice to eliminate them. The scenarios are designed to best represent situations that cause forklift operators the most trouble. They help operators understand the concept of hazard perception as well as sharpen their own hazard perception skills.
This course helps satisfy the training requirements of OSHA’s Powered Industrial Truck Standard (1910.178) and keeps you and your operators in compliance.
