Forklift & Equipment Safety Training

Training is an investment, not an expense. Here at Briggs equipment, we offer operator and instructor safety training in line with OHSA forklift regulations to ensure your team is ready to operate equipment safely. Our training meets or exceeds the standards outlined by OSHA, so you’ll have the confidence that your team is ready to handle any situation they encounter.

We offer training classes for a variety of material handling equipment, including:

  • Forklift safety training

  • Aerial lift safety training

  • Railcar mover safety training

  • Trailer spotter safety training

With our “Train the Trainer” courses, you can have one of your team members certified to teach proper safety procedures for equipment at your business, saving you time and money. We guarantee that our classes will make your workplace safer and more productive.

Delivered at your site, using your equipment, our site-specific training consists of a combination of formal instruction (lecture, discussion, written testing) and practical training including:
