OSHA Forklift Certification
A forklift is a type of construction equipment used to move heavy materials. They are typically used in warehouses and factories but can also be found on construction sites. While forklifts are very useful, they can also be dangerous if not used properly. That is why it’s crucial to get the proper training before operating one.
We provide OSHA-certified forklift training at Ferrari Driving School that will teach you how to operate a forklift safely and in compliance with OSHA regulations.
