Course overview

Warehouses and construction sites around the world use lift trucks. These vital machines lift heavy objects to heights beyond human ability. And they speed up jobs, so everything operates more efficiently. But if you don’t know what you’re doing, using a lift truck carries risk.

Annually, more than 90,000 accidents involve lift trucks in the USA. Of these, nearly 35,000 lead to serious injury, and around 85 deaths occur.
