Forklift

 

Operators of forklifts, clamp trucks, reach trucks and other lifting devices are required to be competent in the operation of the equipment that they are using. The CSA B 335-04 Safety Standards for Lift Trucks outlines general requirements for this equipment as well as operator training requirements. FSN programs follow this standard. All students will go through a theory session as well as hands-on testing and training. Each will receive a wallet card indicating that they have completed the course.
